What You Will Like

The Panamera's front engine design may depart with traditional Porsche design, but its elongated shape provides comfortable seating for everyone--even for passengers over 6 feet tall. It features up to 45 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded. And, it wouldn't be a Porsche if it didn't out-handle and out-accelerate almost everything else on the road. Two hybrid models bring performance and green credibility, while the Turbo S could be the most powerful station wagon available.

The base trim starts at around $78,000, but there is no other car available that looks, handles or hauls like a Panamera.

Introduction

The Porsche Panamera is the closest thing you’ll find to the blending of a luxury sedan and big fast sports car. The Panamera has a real back seat, comparable in roominess to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, to go with its upscale cabin and powerful driving dynamics. Forget your sports sedans, if you want to step on over to the sport side. Also forget your budget.

The Panamera, although face-lifted for 2013, is at the end of its first generation, with a new design scheduled for 2017. So there’s not much new in 2016, but there is a new Edition model, with shiny black trim, 19-inch wheels, two-tone leather, and Bose 14-speaker sound system. Also, now available on all models is the Exclusive’s rear seat entertainment system, with a 10-inch touchscreen and camera for video calls, as well as WiFi hotspot.

Panamera is fast and its stability at high speeds is superb, but because it’s long and heavy, it’s not nearly as nimble as a Porsche 911 or Cayman, or even a Cayenne crossover. After all, it weighs more than two tons.

And don’t expect a car like this to be without controversy to come with its originality, extending to its shape. It looks enough like a Porsche in front, but the big round rear end, a fat hatchback, is considered ugly by some. When parked next to other luxury sedans, however, it does look distinctive and arguably is the car that most beckons to be driven.

There are different powertrains and wheelbases, from plug-in hybrid to wannabe supercar to fill-in limo, so the Panamera might compete with many different vehicles, for example the Mercedes-Benz S-Class or CLS-Class, the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, or even the Aston Martin Rapide or Maserati Quattroporte.

There is the base Panamera, Panamera S, Panamera GTS, Panamera Turbo, and Panamera S E-Hybrid. Panamera 4 and Panamera 4S have available all-wheel drive, while the faster Panamera GTS and Panamera Turbo come standard with all-wheel drive. Panamera S E Hybrid is rear-wheel-drive. Executive models feature a wheelbase that’s six inches longer.

A 3.6-liter V6 engine comes standard making 310 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, able to accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour in a quick 5.7 seconds with the Sport Chrono performance package. The S and 4S models get a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 making 420 horsepower, and the Panamera Turbo makes 520 hp from its twin-turbo V8, which can push it to sixty in a very quick 3.7 seconds.

The Porsche PDK 7-speed dual-clutch transmissions is standard on all models except the S E-Hybrid, which uses an 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission.

Also standard is Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC). The Sport Chrono package is optional; its electronics improve acceleration, handling and safety.

Our choice for enthusiasts is the Panamera GTS, with its strong and sweet-sounding 4.8-liter making 440 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque, with all-wheel drive. It handles the best of all the models.

Fuel mileage is decent, with the base Panamera bringing an EPA-estimated 22 miles per gallon Combined with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The Panamera S and turbocharged 4S only drop 1 mpg, the long wheelbase drops another, the GTS another, and the Turbo a final 1 mpg drop, to 18 mpg Combined. The stop-start system is standard, in default mode, but it can be de-activated.

The hybrid gets the best mileage, with 50 mpg Combined; in gas-only, it gets 25 mpg. It can recharge from a 240-volt outlet in 2.5 hours, or it’s capable of charging the batteries by using gas power.

Lineup

The 2016 Porsche Panamera lineup includes Panamera ($78,100), Panamera Edition ($80,000), Panamera 4 ($82,800), Panamera 4 Edition ($84,300), Panamera S ($93,200), Panamera S E-Hybrid ($93,200), Panamera 4s ($98,300), Panamera 4S Executive ($125,600), Panamera GTS ($113,400), Panamera Turbo ($141,300), Panamera Turbo Executive ($161,100), Panamera Turbo S ($180,300), Panamera Turbo S Executive ($200,500), Panamera Exclusive Series ($263,900). (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charges.)

Walkaround

The bold Panamera looks inspire strong responses, pro and con. From head-on, it looks like a Porsche 911,with big intakes, domed hood and crisp details; but from the rear it looks big and bulbous.

It has a long roofline that binds an unsettling configuration of curves and drops toward the tail in a bubbled arch. It creates great room for the passengers in the rear seat, which is what the car is all about, but gives up elegance in the styling. The rear end is simple and clean, but the large roof and glass make it suffer.

Interior

There’s less debate in the cabin, which is stylish and high tech. With straight lines and flat surfaces, it’s not warm and organic like some luxury cars. It also uses real buttons and switchgear, not touchscreen menus like some luxury cars. The fit and finish is excellent, and materials of a high quality, although it isn’t as quiet in the cabin as a luxury sedan.

In the back, with ample room and features, it does feel like an executive limo, especially the Executive model with long rear doors. Behind the seats, under the glass hatch, there’s a ton of room; Porsche says two bicycles will fit back there.

Driving Impressions

We’ll jump straight to the GTS, because that’s the Panamera we like most, because it’s the model that feels most like a Porsche. It’s not the fastest, only the second-fastest after the Turbo. It’s a normally aspirated V8, with 440 hp and 384 lb-ft, and it’s the best sounding, while being faster than the 3.0-liter V6 turbo that’s in the Panamera S, which, with two-wheel-drive and without the Sport Chrono package, takes 4.9 seconds to get to 60 mph. The GTS can do it in 4.2 seconds, so there. Who needs turbos when you have a big honkin’ V8?

Of course, if you want to bolt twin turbos onto that V8, you get the 520-hp Panamera Turbo which can hit sixty in 3.9 seconds. But that doesn’t make it the best Panamera to own. Its driving dynamics aren’t as pure as those of the GTS, which handles more sharply and precisely. The GTS is solid and connected to the road, while most of the rest of the Panameras feel floaty, with overboosted steering. We observed this in back-to-back comparisons. We have also driven them at Road America, and the V6 models offer the more enjoyable handling than the heavier Turbo versions.

Longest and least agile are the Executive versions.

If it’s technology you’re after, the S E-Hybrid is your model, with its supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine and electric motor with plug-in charging of its 9.4-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. It’s rated at 416 combined horsepower, counting the 95-horsepower electric motor, and with an extra 550 pounds of weight it isn’t as fast as the others, but speed is not its game. But it’s not slow, hitting 60 mph in 5.2 seconds, quick in anyone’s league.

And even with that weight, it handles well thanks to special suspension tuning. As for its ability as an all-electric car, it can go for 22 miles, says Porsche; and hit 83 mph, although it won’t go for 22 miles at 83 mph.

Summary

The Panamera is unique, being a high-performance Porsche sports car with the feel of a luxury sedan and looks of a fastback hatchback. It’s also extremely expensive, and because it’s replacement is on the way, we recommend looking for deals, waiting for the new one, or checking out the competition.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
