The 2018 Porsche Panamera Might Be the Perfect High Performance Four Door Sedan
Porsche took a whole lot of criticism when it first came out with its Panamera sports car. Porsche fans weren’t fond of it’s odd front end or the massive proportions, but the sports car has come a long way since then. It still doesn’t hold the same level of prestige as the 911 lineup does, but when it comes to four door sedans, there are few vehicles on the market that can stand up to the sheer capabilities put forward by the Porsche Panamera.
Plenty of Variants
Whether you want a hybrid powertrain, a turbocharged monster of an engine, a standard model or a mid-level power Panamera, there are options for you to choose from. Porsche presents you with a long list of trim levels and power points in the 2018 Panamera, making it easy to get exactly the right type of vehicle for your needs.
The amount of power you get with Porsche’s sedan depends on the variant that you opt for. The base model sports a very healthy 330 HP thanks to its twin-turbo V6 engine, but if that’s not enough for you, you can step it all the way up to 540 HP on the Panamera Turbo with a more potent V8 engine. Of course there are options in between those two extremes as well, letting you fine tune exactly how much power you’re comfortable with.
The Porsche Panamera has been engineered to an impressive level to corner, brake and handle very well at top speeds. That means you can push the vehicle well past your comfort zone while on the track, without maximizing the capabilities of the car itself. It’s meant for street driving, but this powerful sedan holds its own on the track and isn’t shy about taking on tough turns, and all the other elements of a standard street course. Take it out to the track and you’ll be burning through sets of tires like nobody’s business while falling in love with Porsche’s longest car.
The Panamera comes with all-wheel drive, and the drive system offer the perfect balance of handling mechanics. Whether you’re dishing out understeer or oversteer, the car wards them off with ease, leaving you with precision controls and a truly enjoyable driving experience overall. If you’re looking for a car that can carry around the family, that’s a true pleasure to drive, and also good enough to take to the track on the weekends, the 2018 Panamera is the best four-door sedan for the job. It’s a blast to drive, it’s elegant and finely designed, and it handles superbly, no matter what you throw at it. What more could you ask for?
