Life is too short not to drive an awesome car

2011 Porsche Panamera 4 4dr Sedan AWD (3.6L 6cyl 7AM)

Review

I've owned this car for a week now and it has surpassed my expectations. I was a bit torn on the design but everyday I grow more fond of the looks. I tell you, it looks fantastic in your garage. Handling is amazing, power is abundant and the interior is as classy as it gets. My wife has had several people come up to her and compliment the car. The Porsche dealer was great and the whole Porsche experience has been worth waiting for for my 40 years.

Review

First Porsche. Overall this car is an exciting car to drive. The interior is reminicent of a jet cockpit. There are many "hard buttons" to access features which may seem daunting at first. However, everything is logically placed and easily learned, and makes feature selection much easier than drilling down through computer menus. I have a mixed review on performance. Once the car is rolling, it is superb. However, there is a big catch in my opinion. When pulling away from a standing stop there is a sort of stall/lunge sequence that almost throws you forward then back in the seat. My dealer tells me this is a known issue and likely not resolvable. If so, this is a deal killer.

Panamera 4 review

First Porsche. Considered and drove several times the following: E350/550, BMW535/550, Jaguar XF, Infinity 37/56, Audi A6. By far the most fun to drive was the Panamera. A bit more expensive than most on the list but the most unique on the road. The competition is common on the road. It is fun to get the looks and the thumbs up from many. The V6 has ample power compared to the V8. Been getting over 23 mpg on combined city/highway with average speeds of around 45 mph. This car is a bit sluggish right off the start but it really picks up once you hit 35 mph. Getting from there to 60-80 is a breeze.

Pure Porsche, But Evolved

Review

This is my fourth Porsche vehicle: Boxster, Carrera, Cayenne, and now this. All Porsche, yet all different. The car is deeply impressive and engaging. It compares favorably against cars costing twice as much, or more. Handling, cockpit features, design, power, etc. -- all top-notch. I think the Panamera is now the one to beat in the 4 door sports luxury category. Most people would be concerned that the V6 would be less-than-powerful. I drove both this and the S model, and came away preferring the V6 -- lighter, more nimble, and the engine was more responsive than the heavy V8. The looks have been criticized, but I don't see the problem -- the car looks drop-dead gorgeous to me!

Phenomenal 2011 Panamera 4 Sport Sedan

Review

Just sitting in this car raises the hair on one's arms with it's dazzling interior! When you start the engine, the cockpit envelopes you and your passengers into a quiet and subtle road handling experience. Having owned other well known luxury sedans, sports cars, SUVs and researched even more models, nothing comes close to this hill-grabbing, incredible corner- taking, quick-stopping, fuel-sipping and heart- stopping chariot. My second Porsche, the Panamera 4, maybe the last vehicle I ever need to buy.

Review

We purchased a 2011 Panamera 4, after looking at a Cayenne. There is no comparison, this vehicle is a home run. The vehicle is White with Beige interior, and you can't take your eyes off of it. You will turn heads on the highway, and it performs like a Porsche. Once inside, you know that this vehicle is a luxury sport car.

Panamera Sports Sedan

2011 Porsche Panamera 4 4dr Sedan AWD (3.6L 6cyl 7AM)

Review

After looking at the 7, A8, S550 and XJ, the Panamera 4 was the clear winner. Not only does it drive like my '09 911 4S, it has Sport and Sport Plus options to remap the engine and suspension. Pictures do not do this car justice, as the subtle curves that are Porsche design elements just do not show. The interior is outstanding, clearly the best of all the cars in this class. The cockpit feel and the multiple adjustment seats with ventilation are outstanding. This car just feels great. This is truly a Sports Sedan

2011 Porsche Panamera 4

Review

We've been through many luxury cars, Lexus GS350, Mercedes CLK 430, CLK500, BMW 335I, BMW 535i, Audi A6 and to our opinion, none of those drive like our new Panamera 4. They are either too soft or too hard and none of them beats the comfort and the handling of the Porsche. We only have a few hundreds miles on the car but we can feel that the build quality is way better. The seat comfort, audio system and ride are first class. With the V6 at 5.8 secs from 0-60mph, it's not the fastest car but it's adequate for passing. We will update after a few thousands miles.
