  • Porsche Panamera Turbo S UK first drive review In there'll be a hybrid and, probably, later a diesel and a faster GTS/Turbo S too.

    There are fast cars, very fast cars and then there's the Porsche Panamera Turbo. Over the years, I have driven very few cars that force the driver.

    About logo. The Porsche logo is a coat of arms that shows: a riding horse and a deer antler, framed by red stripes. The emblem is dedicated to the home city of the concern - Studgart. Strips and horns are symbols of the city, and the stallion is depicted in connection with the fact that originally in place of the city, in the year 950 there was a horse farm, around which a whole city was gradually built.

    Let's cut to the chase: The Porsche Panamera is big, fast, and The Panamera Turbo is four second fast to 60 mph and will hit mph.

    The exterior just does not do everything else about this car justice. The Turbo has a twin-turbocharged 4. But is it like a Porsche to drive? Ever see the movie Shallow Hal?

    Porsche Panamera Turbo review | Autocar

    Porsche's Panamera has had a mid-life refresh, tested here in its most-powerful state yet - the new bhp Turbo. The Panamera is Porsche's attempt at the same.

    It's a four-door, four-seat, fastback sports car which it says creates "the Panamera class. Really the Panamera is a grand tourer and is offered initially with V8 engines derived from the Cayenne SUV, giving fast-sports performance in naturally-aspirated S tune with 2 or 4wd , or supercar-baiting pace in the 4wd Turbo flavour tested here.

    The Panamera easily seats four in comfort. We found by adding The cockpit architecture is cosseting too, with a high transmission tunnel running the length of the passenger space, a high-set gearlever and excellently clear switchgear and dials. You can even have a towbar. But is it like a Porsche to drive? For the most part, yes. The Turbo has a twin-turbocharged 4.

    The Panamera Turbo feels an indecently fast car. Air-springs are standard on the Turbo and they have three modes of stiffness. It cossets, say, ninety percent as well as an S-Class or 7-series.

    Moving the suspension settings through Sport and into Sport Plus it firms itself up to the extent that Sport Plus might prove too harsh for some British B-roads. Sure, the Panamera never totally shakes off its weight, but it goes down the road at a proper lick and it steers very well, with good precision and a rack whose speed increases further away from straight-ahead.

    With Sport Plus engaged active anti-roll bars all but eliminate roll. On the road the high grip limit is sounded by a squeal from the outside front tyre, though the electronically-controlled rear differential which brakes a lightly loaded inside rear tyre can help straighten the car on corner exit.

    Our test car was fitted with carbon ceramic brakes: If you want most of the comfort of a luxury car with a heady dose of dynamism and world-beating pace, then the Panamera has few peers. But it is not, as a 7-Series or S-Class is, a car for rear passengers, it is a car for drivers. Porsche definitely seem to have a two tier range now, and the launch of the Panamera does nothing to change that. The standard and GT range cars, which on the whole are designed to appease the real enthusiast, and the Uber cars such as the turbos which are crushingly effective but leave the real driver some what cold.

    Sorry, but in that front quarter shot, that looks like a very ugly car. It's like the front of a with the back of a Chrysler PT Cruiser welded on. I saw a fleet of these about half a dozen last week in south east France with Cayenne support vehicles loaded up with spare tyres etc. Final testing at this late stage? Anyway, I thought the looked better in the metal than the photos I've seen.

    Even the wife liked it and she normally hates Porsches. I agree, although with different cars! You've got the 'proper' Porsches - , Cayman and probably Boxster - and then the 'niche' Porsches - Cayenne, Panamera. Could you see a Porsche towing anything? It would be like having a diesel Porsche Oh wait they've already done that, what next? A Porsche with a 4-pot engine? The way Porsche are going its not a possiblility but a probability.
