Porsche Panamera S: Quick test report

Porsche Panamera S

Quick test report here of the Porsche Panamera S. Enjoy!

At 195.6 inches long and 76.0 inches wide, the Panamera is enormous, but its character is not entirely unlike another uniquely shaped Porsche, the one with the engine mounted at the other end. This car could be considered stiff-legged if you’re looking for luxury-barge refinement, but it’s also supremely agile, digging into the pavement and yanking itself through turns with surprising alacrity. The 4.8-liter will stick your Skittles deep into the folds of the leather seats, turning in a 0-to-60-mph time of 4.7 seconds and tearing through the quarter-mile in 13.3 at 107 mph. The Panamera is about the same size as a Mercedes S-class, but the Panamera has a wholly different mission. This is a sports car first and foremost.
