Reviews Summary

We love the 2023 BMW M3 with the same fervor as the Jeep Wrangler and the Mazda MX-5 Miata. But unlike those two fun but singularly purposed vehicles, the 2023 M3 is can be many things at once, all wrapped up in a single package. A BMW M3 doesn’t come cheap, but it strikes us as well worth the money.

Reviews Summary

With that realization in hand, it launched the Cayenne SUV, then followed it up with the four-door Panamera grand tourer. These decisions proved wise, and today, the successful Panamera is two years past its 2021 model-year freshening and likely closing in on the end of its second-generation run.

The Panamera blends the styling elements of a 911 Carrera with the practical, passenger-friendly configuration of a sportback or sports wagon design. In addition, the lineup is diverse. The 2023 Porsche Panamera is available in three body styles and with your choice between multiple drivetrains.

This year, the only change to the 2023 Panamera is that adaptive cruise control is standard instead of optional.
