2012 Porsche Panamera 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 7AM)


Really great car, shockingly so. It's a very comfortable 4 door sedan, decent headroom, comfortable, usable seats, both front and rear, smooth and quiet ride, nice interior.

At the same time, it has absolutely unreal, incredible sports car handling. The only car I've ever driven that handled the road as well as the Panamera was a 360 Modena. But that was a very noisy 2 seater, you could feel every bump on the road, difficult to get in an out of, etc.

Amazing, they basically took a Ferrari and made it pleasant to drive, with virtually no degradation in performance.

Best Features

handling, handling, handling. Also, I really like the fact that everything including the map is displayed under the steering wheel, and the steering wheel controls are very well designed. I was able to make a 2-way conference call without taking my hands off the steering wheel.

Worst Features

Manual Gear Shifter: I like the Ferrarri/Maserati paddle design much better.
