There are quite a few variants of the family-friendly Panamera sedan from which to choose, (eight to be precise) including the standard Panamera, the sportier Panamera S, the AWD Panamera 4 and 4S, the turbo-charged, ultra-sporty Panamera GTS, the Panamera S Hybrid, and the Panamera Turbo and Turbo S. The base Panamera sedan has a starting MSRP $75,200 which is a very reasonable starting price for a luxury vehicle. The priciest 2012 Porsche Panamera, the Turbo S model, has a starting MSRP of $173,200- a large step up from the standard base sedan. Overall, after review, we can say that you won't have to compromise with the 2012 Porsche Panamera. With this sporty sedan, you get the best of both worlds- power and luxury.
The 2012 Porsche Panamera sedan can accommodate four full-sized adults very comfortably, and it's a lot more powerful than traditional sedans. The Panamera achieves a top track speed of 160 mph and a zero-to-sixty time of six seconds (5.8 with the optional Sport Chrono Package Plus) due to its 3.6-liter, 300 horsepower front engine and a rear-wheel-drivetrain. It's also very well-equipped and includes features such as a pop-up rear spoiler, rear parking sensors, adaptive suspension dampers, a sunroof, LED daytime running lights, automatic xenon headlights, eighteen-inch wheels, auto-dimming mirrors, and an electric rear hatch. Inside, the Panamera's technology and comfort features are plentiful and include an 11-speaker audio system, a navigation system that's hard-drive based, leather/heated front seats, a 60/40 folding rear seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a USV/iPod interface. Options are also abundant, but they can add up quickly and easily increase the price of the vehicle twofold. Unique safety features include front knee airbags, an incredibly-short stopping distance, and optional ceramic-composite brakes and a rearview camera. Overall, the Porsche Panamera is a sure bet.
