Automotive Editor -
For those who love the 911, there's only one choice when they need a sedan.


The Porsche Panamera just keeps getting better. With a dazzling array of customizable options, and plenty of amenities available at each trim level, there's a Panamera for virtually any taste or budget. The 2013 model year offers eight trim levels that begin with the base Panamera's 300-horsepower V6 and reach the dizzy heights of a 550-horsepower V8 in the Panamera Turbo S.

Wheel size starts at 18 inches and get as large as 22 inches. Typical features include: automatic xenon headlights, a sunroof, auto-dimming mirrors, rear parking sensors and LED running lights. The Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system helps maintain optimal traction and handling control at all times. The automated start/stop feature, which turns off the engine at stoplights, helps improve fuel economy during urban excursions.


Standard interior features for each model include dual-zone automatic climate control, partial leather upholstery, Bluetooth connectivity, eight-way adjustable power front seats, a chilled glove box, and a premium 11-speaker sound system.

Standard safety features include antilock brakes; stability and traction control; front and rear side airbags; and side curtain airbags and front knee airbags. As with every other category in the Panamera, countless upgrades provide further customization, including extra camera visibility, park assist, a fire extinguisher, or lane assist change with blind spot detection.

Competitors such as the BMW 7-Series or Mercedes-Benz S-Class offer comparable or larger engines, and vehicles such as the Maserati Quattroporte and Jaguar XJ tempt buyers with equally distinctive style. But the Panamera’s high-performing, curve-hugging, luxury-providing, customization-friendly package is hard to beat. And so far it is holding its own.
