2010 Porsche Panamera
Details are now roaring in on the 2010 Porsche Panamera in advance of its US debut this October.
As Porsche’s first four-door Gran Turismo, and first all new front engine Porsche car since the 928, the Panamera’s tail-heavy stance does take some getting use to.
But, you’ll quickly get past that with power from 400 and 500 horsepower V8s.
So, 0 to 60 times are pure Porsche, between 4 to 5 seconds, with a top speed near 190 miles per hour. That’s with the Panamera’s 4000-plus pounds of heft, and most agree that handling is also Porsche-caliber across the model line. That goes for both rear- and all-wheel drive setups.
This fastback 4-seater offers plenty of luxury and somewhat surprising comfort with a large luggage bay.
Pricing is hefty too. $90,000 for the S, $94,000 for the 4S, and $133,000 for the Turbo.
We’ll have an extensive test of the 2010 Porsche Panamera soon.
