It's been half a dozen years since the Porsche Panamera first appeared at the Shanghai Motor Show, long enough for the bruising to fade on the tender sensibilities of the hard-core faithful. It was almost amusing to see the first reactions to the big Porsche's arrival, particularly from those hard-core sports-car loyalists who considered it a perso
If your experience with Mexico has been limited to fenced-in coastal resorts, then you may not realize that it’s one of the most ecologically diverse countries on the planet or that the area around Mexico City holds scenic and challenging mountain roads that rival anything to be found in California. I certainly didn’t.
The 2017 Porsche Paname
A rocket-propelled luxury sedan? A luxurious rocket-sedan? The 2017 Porsche Panamera is the latest take on Porsche’s often-controversial four-door sports car, and a machine with amongst the most sophisticated powertrain and chassis tech on the road. It’s a comfy long-haul cruiser, a thrilling performer, and a corner-carver extraordinaire – depend
What’s faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and is able to use “green” parking spaces and high-occupancy lanes? Porsche’s Panamera E-Hybrid series feels pretty damn close to the first two, and definitely qualifies for the third.
More battery equals more electric boost, which equals more fun.
That’s due to a se
Purists were horrified when Porsche initially unleashed a four-door hatchback in 2009, but the Panamera more than paid its way. And now the automaker spins out the second generation of its four-seater sports-wagon, which takes just about everything that was awesome about the first one and makes it even better.
Play with the Panamera Turbo har
Often, when starting up a big-horsepower car early in the morning, there’s worry that you’ll cause a racket. Perhaps a dull, building-penetrating roar will stir your neighbours from their slumber, trigger nearby birds to go silent in assessing the sound, or wake up any sleeping infant within a few hundred feet.
This machine is about as big-powe
MALAHAT, BC – Like a scrumptious European delicacy that seems to be taking forever to make it to North America, hot luxury wagons are an actual segment in Europe. In North America, despite a plethora of fiery performance five-door hatchbacks, the list of hot high-end sedans that come in longer wagon versions is not anywhere close to being long enou
DUNCAN, BC – When Porsche unveiled its 918 Hybrid hypercar, it seemed clear that the 887 hp plug-in hybrid supercar was a four-wheeled mission statement. Soon after the 918’s launch, Porsche replaced the hybrid Cayenne and Panamera models with more advanced plug-in hybrid versions, its extra-large battery and electric motor adding both power and ef
Porsche has always enjoyed a complicated history of remaining deeply loyal to its own past design conceits while simultaneously making bold moves that push far beyond the boundaries of anything that could be reasonably called traditional. Witness the co-existence of the rear-engine 911 sports car , the Cayenne SUV and Panamera sedan – the firs
Porsche has just revealed the car that the Panamera should have been all along: the Sport Turismo. That's right, there's a Panamera wagon arriving soon. It gets a better roofline, up to 1,390L of cargo space, seating for five (a Panamera first), and up to 550 hp.
The newest Panamera will come in four versions. We'll get the turbocharged 3.0L V6

History/Description: Porsche launched their first production four-door car model for 2010, and have been selling the Panamera strongly ever since. Designed to be a four-seat, four-door sports car ready for any road or weather, it flaunts a one-of-a-kind cabin with a strong dual-cockpit design, exception
TEGERNSEE, Germany – One minute we're rocketing down the Bundesautobahn 8 , a 497 kilometre strip of pavement running west from Luxembourg to Austria, at nearly 230 km/h. The next we're rolling sedately down the Ausfahrt ramp and into the bucolic Bavarian countryside. That such a big car could be so readily hauled back to sensibility is largely

Porsche is gearing up to reveal a new flagship for its Panamera lineup, marking the first time a hybrid model has topped any of the automaker's model ranges.
Dubbed Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, the latest range-topper builds on the 2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo's 4.0L turbocharged
It’s said that if you want to get to know a culture, you have to get to know its food. And food is regional, right down to city specialties. That was the idea behind Porsche’s Panamera E-Hybrid East Coast Culinary Adventure: take three days, three Panamera plug-in hybrids, and visit seven cities to taste the food for which they’re known.
