Porsche Panamera

The second-generation Panamera keeps the sporty Porsche driving experience of the original car. This large, four-door luxury car hides beneath a coupe silhouette and retains its versatile hatchback configuration. New turbocharged V6 and V8 engines provide plenty of motivation. Three hybrid powertrains with varying degrees of power are offered. An optional air suspension and active safety features are also available.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
