The Porsche Panamera was first unveiled at the 2009 Auto Shanghai International Automobile Show. The idea of a four-door Porsche was novel, but after driving one, they quickly realized Porsche had something special in the Panamera.
Even the most hardcore critics had to agree. Porsche had created the best luxury sedan the world had ever seen. Forget your Audis and BMWs. The Panamera was in an entirely new league altogether.
This particular model for sale in Los Angeles, California, is equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 engine, producing 300 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 295 lb-ft of torque at 3,750 rpm. Because it isn’t limited like its German siblings, it can go on to a top speed of 162 mph.
You Can Have It All With This 2014 Porsche Panamera Hatchback
A seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission sends power to the rear-wheels only, but there is a four-wheel drive model as well. It might look larger than some other Porsche offerings, but we guarantee you it’s nothing short of breathtaking. Don’t let its size fool you. This is a true performance car in every sense of the word.
In the corners, it’s even more spectacular. It exhibits no body roll, has excellent turn-in, and can practically run rings around every other large executive sedan.
This car is finished in Dark Blue Metallic and features all the luxuries you’d expect: ABS, dual-zone climate in the front, power moonroof, and Porsche Communication Management with Navigation.
It’s the only choice if you want the best luxury sedan on the market, which also happens to be absurdly fast.
