Porsche Panamera Overview

With the 2014 Panamera, Porsche is introducing its first plug-in hybrid and two new longer Executive variants. The new S E-Hybrid produces 416 total system hp, while the S model now uses a new 3.0-liter turbo V6. This large, four-door luxury hatchback has a coupe silhouette and remains true to the marque. It delivers performance and agility with comfort for four adults. Handling is agile and enjoyable, with excellent steering and lots of cornering grip. The ride is a bit on the firm side for a luxury car, though. The beautifully finished interior is fitted with a button-dominated center console that can be intimidating at first.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
