Porsche intended the Panamera to be everything at once, a luxurious sedan, a practical daily driver, an agile corner-carving machine, and a visual stunner amidst the traditionally-designed luxury sedans. And the Panamera lives up to the brand’s expectations with its wide range of models. The car was launched back in the summer of 2009 as a 2010 model and entered its second-generation iteration in 2017, making it a freshly baked offering from the brand.
The 2018 Panamera sedan continues with no changes barring the introduction of two new models in the lineup. Under the hood, the sedan is powered by a standard 3.0-liter V6 motor and is built on Volkswagen’s latest MSB platform which it shares with the Bentley Flying Spur and the Continental GT. The base price of the sedan starts at $85,000 and it competes with the Audi A7, Mercedes-Benz CLS 550, and the BMW 6-Series 640i xDrive Gran Turismo.
