There aren’t many sports sedans like the Porsche Panamera. Whether drivers choose the base-level V6 model, the GTS, the Turbo S, or the S E-Hybrid, they’ll find that the Panamera has been created to provide a winning combination of outstanding driving dynamics and unparalleled comfort. All of the engines offer admirable performance:
The 3.6L V6 engine produces an impressive 306 hp, is clocked form 0 to 60 mph in 6 seconds flat, has a top speed of 160 mph, and delivers an equally impressive 28 mpg highway.
The 3.0L twin-turbo V6 of the Panamera S provides 420 hp, goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, tops out at 178 mph, and still manages to get 27 mpg highway.
The 4.8L twin-turbo V8 of the Turbo S makes it the most powerful of the Panamera lineup, providing a robust 570 hp with 533 lb-ft of toque, and a top speed of 192 mph.
Rear-wheel drive is standard on all models except the Turbo S, which comes with all-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive system remains an option on the other models.
Winning the 2014 ALG Residual Award is a significant honor for Porsche, and should heighten interest in the exceptional Panamera lineup.
