    Very good car with high quality interior and just fast enough. High cost of maintenance kept me away from purchasing. Tesla Model S Performance model is probably more reliable for the same model year and has lower maintenance and no gas costs.

    I've Owned Two 911's And This Panamera. I Would Take The Panamera Every Day. — Since I occasionally carry business passengers, I am concerned about comfort and interior. Porsche did this right. The styling could have been more raked like the Audi 7 but the passengers would pay the price for that styling. If you have children or grandchildren, here is a Porsche they can ride in without issues. There is room for car seats if necessary. If you travel, the cargo space is excellent. It's almost like having an SUV when you start loading luggage and fold down the rear seats. Just a very functional design. Comparing this to Aston Martin and Masserati as I have seen in the comments section is ridiculous. One buys a car for how they are going to use it. If you think about the situations you use a car for, the Panamera will fit far more situations that those other cars...and at a far lower price and cost of ownership.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Whether you are in love with the Panamera styling or not, when you drive this car you will get a lot of attention.  It is distrinctive and at the same time functional.  The unique roof line means headroom for backseaters and more room for cargo when you travel.  The backseats are very comfortable.  Recently got stuck in Houston traffic with backseat passengers.  They didn't mind a bit.  
    The build quality of a Porsche is amazing.  These are not prissy or finicky sports cars which are constantly in the shop.  The Panamera is tough and reliable.  Porsche makes its controls functional, useful and easy to find.

    Cons: I find the height of the front bumper makes me very cautious in any parking situation or when driving down a steep driveway.  I suppose it's for aerodynamics but it is really low.

    Another Great Model By Porsche - Panamera 4s — This was my first Porsche, and it did not disappoint. I was considering a Carrera, but with a wife and two children, I opted for the Panamera 4S. At the time, there were only a few Panamera's on the road, and I wanted something different from the masses. What better way to achieve this than with a four door Porsche? The Panamera 4S is a great car. It is heavy, but still accelerates extremely well. I always drive the car in the Sport mode, as it is much more responsive. There are three suspension settings - normal, sport, and sport plus. I like the sport setting best. Around town, sport plus is just too hard, as you can feel every bump and crack in the road. I'm going to miss this car when I get rid of it, as are the kids and my wife. We love this car, and couldn't be happier with its performance over the last three years.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Love this car..... Lots of power, great handling, beautiful interior space, clean lines.

    Cons: None

    Car is amazing. Only bad thing is that everyone on the highway that sees it wants to challenge it. Unfortunately they don’t know that every with the 3.0 V6 turbo it has sports plus mode that is insane... Read More
