The cheapest way into the lineup (if you consider nearly $100,000 cheap), the Panamera 4 Sport Turismo starts at $98,350 (all prices include the $1,250 destination fee).
As you’d expect for the price, luxury features are plentiful. The Sport Turismo starts on 19-inch rims, with a panoramic glass roof, heated and powered side mirrors, an automatic rear hatch, an adaptive spoiler, and a dual exhaust system. LED lights are standard, as are rain-sensing wipers and a “Welcome Home” lighting sequence.
The interior gets partial-leather seats, heated and power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, push-button start, wheel-mounted shift paddles, and auto-dimming mirrors. Infotainment is handled by a 12-inch screen, which is complemented by navigation, a 10-speaker audio system, Apple CarPlay compatibility, front and rear parking assist, a rearview camera, and dual USB charging ports.
Porsche has a reputation for interminable option lists, and the Panamera is no exception.
The base Panamera Sport Turismo gets three main packages. The first is the Premium Package ($3,860), which includes a smarter key, lane change assist, 14-way power seats with memory, and a Bose audio system. Next is the Premium Package Plus ($6,250), which includes all of the above plus soft-close doors, heated rear seats, heated and ventilated front seats, and cornering headlights with a built-in cleaning system. Last is the safety-oriented Assistance Package ($5,370), which bundles Porsche’s version of adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and night vision assist.
A variety of aesthetic packages are also available, most of which add sportier accents to the fascia and badging.
The à la carte upgrades start with full leather seating ($3,790, $4,320, or $5,650 for the fanciest cowhides) and 14-way power seats with memory settings ($1,780). Eightteen-way sport seats are available for $3,320, while all manner of contrasting and deviated stitching can be added for up to $7,230.
On the performance side, Porsche will add rear-axle steering for $1,620. Beefed up brakes are $8,970, and the sport-tuned Sport Chrono Package ($2,270) adds launch control and sportier driving modes (plus a nifty stopwatch on the dash). A quad exhaust system starts at $3,490, and a more sophisticated power steering system is $280.
The smart key is available as an option for $1,100, and acoustic glass can be had for $1,250. Cornering headlights are $1,020, and Porsche will make them into a “Matrix Design” for $2,220. All the features from the packages are available as individual options as well, generally for $1,000 to $3,000.
Four-zone climate control is $1,130, and massage-capable seats are $1,200. The Bose sound system is $1,600 on its own, but it’s overshadowed by the optional $7,530 Burmester system. Rear USB ports are $420, and a full rear entertainment system is $2,630.
If that’s not enough, Porsche will gladly customize the interior with an endless number of trim and material options, most of which will add a significant amount to the price. Exhausted yet? So are we.
