The Porsche Panamera

If you are a Porsche enthusiast, you probably have been hearing about the upcoming Panamera.  Over the last couple of years there has been a growing chatter about a car that takes its cues from the 911, but delivers a sedan for the family man that just can’t drive an average four door.  The Panamera looks great- yes even with 4 doors, this vehicle is smoking hot and as many Porsche enthusiasts have already blogged- very sexy.

Porsche Panamera Tech Specs
So what are we looking at in a family car from Porsche?  Well if you were impressed with the Cayenne SUV, you will be blown away with the Panamera.  While the vehicle is definitely a sedan, for the first moments you set eyes on it, it actually looks like a coupe.  In fact, the beautiful lines of this vehicle offer a very sporty and swoopy hoodline and an overall nice shape that gives cues to slightly suggest this vehicle has four doors.

What really matters to most is what kind of power will this vehicle have and to put all at ease, it should be noted that in the true tradition of Porsche, power will come in a giant heaping.  Expect between 300 horsepower to 500 horsepower with at least a couple of engine choices.  In fact, if the buzz is correct, a hybrid version of the Panamera is in the cards as well.

While the photos are out and there are plenty of details leaked, much information is still up in the air and won’t be known for months or even a year or so.  As of now we can only guess that there will be a choice of a six speed manual transmission and an automatic trans- probably a double clutch.  As for price and delivery, many in the know expect this vehicle to be out late next summer or early fall with a price that approaches $75K to $100K USD.
