Are you an executive that is looking to cruise into work at an average speed 10mph over the speed limit? If yes, then the Porsche Panamera is the car for you. Are you concerned about the functionality of having your coffee in one hand and the company’s annual expense report on the dash? If yes, then the Porsche Panamera is the perfect fit for your three-car garage.
The Porsche Panamera is a car that was designed to go fast first and worry about speeding tickets later. The base model starts at $85,000 with a peppy 330hp twin turbo V6. The range topping Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Executive is equipped with a twin turbo V8 and an electric motor — which combines for a whopping 680 horsepower. The most incredible figure surrounding the ranging topping Panamera is its base price of $194,800. Upon reading this number my wallet had a stroke.
New for this year, Porsche finally unveiled the Sport Turismo version, which in my mind offers a much more sleeked and defiant design. It’s a shooting brake style that simply screams class.
The Porsche Panmera boasts insane stats that are taking New York’s financial district by storm. Fitted with four comfortable seats, this car instantly engulfs its passengers in luxurious leather. A quick look at the dashboard reveals technology suitable to take over a third world country. This vehicle is dripping in money and announces to the world that you vacation in The Hamptons.
Everything about the Panamera is posh. There is no piece of fine-brushed aluminum that doesn’t feel cool to the touch. Some may consider it the automotive incarnation of the devil, however I believe this vehicle exemplifies perfect harmony between performance and comfort.
