2014 Porsche Panamera What's new for 2014? 
2014 Porsche Panamera

For 2014, the Panamera S models receive a twin-turbocharged V6 offering 20 more horsepower than the outgoing V8, while the S hybrid is replaced by a new plug-in hybrid that can be recharged via AC outlet or by the engine. The S E-Hybrid's electric motor doubles output from last year and its battery pack gains increased capacity.

Bridging the performance gap between the Panamera S and Turbo trims, Porsche adds a GTS trim to the roster for 2013. In addition, a new Platinum Edition is available for base Panamera and all-wheel-drive Panamera 4 models, bringing with it distinctive aesthetic elements and enhanced features while making a strong value-added statement.

In addition to the inclusion of the Turbo S and S Hybrid into the model line, the 2012 Porsche Panamera has only minor changes, mostly options, like Lane Change Assistant and some Porsche Exclusive options, including bi-xenon headlight surrounds in black, Sports Exhaust Tailpipes and new leather packages.

About Porsche Panamera

Despite cries from purists that a 4-door Porsche sedan was sports car heresy, the public has spoken loud and clear: the Porsche Panamera is here to stay. For 2014, Porsche ups the ante with a revised exterior showing off tighter lines, a new plug-in hybrid model and a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 replacing last year's V8 in the S trims. A total of nine models make up the Panamera lineup, including two new extended-wheelbase trims (4S Executive and Turbo Executive) featuring rear bucket seats divided by a full-length center console. Horsepower for the Panamera ranges from 310 all the way to 520, with the new plug-in hybrid promising a zero to 60 run in 5.2 seconds and top speed of 167 mph.

"The 2013 Porsche Panamera GTS: I've owned several Porsche's through out the years and this one is by far the one to own. Don't misunderstand me, I've loved owning several styles of Porsche's for over 25+ years. I know how to drive sensibly and safe, but also enjoy driving hard and fast when the back road opportunities arise. This GTS offers peace and tranquility on the open road, my wife and son are known to nap on longer trips. However, when ready push the sport plus button, the car growls, the suspension tightens, lowers by 27mm, the transmission selects the appropriate gear and good by Dr. Jeckyl and hello Mr. Hyde! I've had back road run ins with smaller sportier cars with bigger engines and more horse power while out enjoying the s's. I know several times the other driver has wondered " how did that guy just do what I saw?" as I've disappeared into the corners. After the adrenaline fun time's over, select your comfort setting, the exhaust quiets, the suspension softens, the transmission relaxes and gracefully slithers the car down the road. And by the way, the three friends in the car with me want to do it all over again."

Pros: "High power, handling luxury inside,sport exterior"

Cons: "pricey, but worth it"

"Not only is the Turbo Executive a fast and agile car that you would expect from a Porsche, but the inside of the car is what sold me. It is truly the definition of luxury with all the bells and whistles. Additionally, the leg room in the car quite honestly is shockingly great. Absolutely worth the investment and once you test drive you will see why."

Pros: "Superb luxury, sportiness, handling. Unsolicited compliments every day. Hwy mileage over 31."

Cons: "Rear and side visibility. Wide stance. Cupholders."

"A first rate, four door sports/luxury sedan that can be driven daily. The hatchback design provides ample storage for trips. Impressive interior. Comfortable for four people. Have read mixed reviews about exterior styling, but we love it. Its been a head turner. Tested the V8, but the V6 has more than enough oomph and handles beautifully. Used the money saved to get several (pricey) options we wanted. Recommend the optional back up camera as visibility to the rear is not ideal. That should really be standard on this car. Great highway mileage is another plus."
