2012 porsche panamera Reviews and News

2012 Porsche Panamera
2012 Porsche Panamera
Two years ago, many pundits predicted that Porsche would fall on its face with this full-size, four-door hatchback. Well, the verdict is in: the Panamera is the brand's best-selling car, beating out the 911 in all its iterations. The secret is that under its somewhat polarizing exterior, the Panamera is an excellent luxury car. The well-appointed cabin features four nicely sculpted, 911-style chairs, although it takes some flexibility to sit in the ones in back. Those rear seats fold down to open up 44 cubic feet of cargo space--more than three times what you'll find in a BMW 7-series. We're still not sure about Porsche's approach to telematics: more than fifty center-console buttons collectively do the work of one BMW-style controller. The Panamera is also fast, especially when you opt for one of its V-8 engines. We suggest the 550-hp, four-wheel-drive Turbo S model for keeping away those pesky 911 GT3s. On the more sober end of the spectrum, one can opt for the same V-6/electric hybrid powertrain offered in the Cayenne and enjoy 30 mpg on the highway. The Hybrid comes only with rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic. All other variants can be had with four-wheel drive and use a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. For all its capability and versatility, though, the Panamera does not offer anywhere near the driving involvement of its sports car brethren. The steering is accurate but numb, the brakes powerful but not very progressive. Still, it's hard to argue with a four-door luxury sedan that can hang with a Nissan GT-R in a drag race.

A 380-hp hybrid that manages only 22 mpg in the city and costs at least $97,125 sounds like Marie Antoinette's answer to global climate change. Porsche mostly makes up for the ridiculousness of this concept, though, with a level of execution few automakers can marshal. Just take a look at the Marsala-colored leather cabin. It combines the purpose of a drivers' car -- clear gauges, a small steering wheel, and the best bucket seats in the industry -- with the elegance and comfort of a luxury car -- leather and real metal everywhere, along with plush carpets and incredible attention to detail.

Is your Porsche Panamera incapable of holding all of your luggage? Did you look at the recently unveiled Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake and wish that it was made on the other side of Stuttgart, Germany? Perk up your ears, Porschephiles: the automaker is apparently working on a shooting brake version of the Panamera.
NLC Porsche Panamera Front Three Quarters View
We ask plenty of insane and inane questions, but we never once mused what a Porsche Panamera would look like if customized by a custom motorcycle builder. Alas, Germany’s No Limit Custom (NLC) decided to answer that question regardless by crafting the Panamera Turbo GP-970 shown here. In the five years the Panamera has been on sale, we’ve seen all sorts of odd-looking body kits created for Porsche’s first production sedan, but none are quite as ungainly as what you see here. NLC claims its target was to create a “completely new and aggressive design,” and we’d argue they succeeded – at least when it comes to the front clip. A new front fascia and hood, both crafted from carbon fiber, lend the Panamera a pointed snoot apparently inspired by the Batmobile. If the gaping lower air intakes aren’t wild enough, the raised hood section provides space for both an awkward-looking NACA duct and another air scoop located near the cowl. The body revisions don’t stop there. The GP-970 also gains new carbon fiber side skirts with flared light catchers, a new rear bumper with a massive diffuser, painted taillamp trim, and an unusual aerodynamic device placed atop the rear window. Arguably, the most tasteful piece to NLC’s puzzle are the wheels – the 23-inch rims are machined in-house from solid chunks of aluminum, and sport an interesting cog-like pattern around their perimeter.  Pity they’re finished in a bright orange hue, that clashes oh-so-nicely with the GP-970’s matte grey exterior. NLC’s revisions are but skin deep – not only are there no details listed on any interior modifications,  but NLC doesn’t detail any powertrain amendments either.  We suspect the company is merely attempting to dress up the Panamera’s exterior – a notion bolstered by the fact NLC claims the GP-970’s parts are available on every Panamera variant, including the Panamera, the Panamera S, the Panamera S Hybrid, Panamera 4/4S, the Panamera GTS, the Panamera Turbo, and the Panamera Turbo S.
