    CAR magazine on Panamera

    A first view of the Panamera by CAR magazine UK (01/2009).

    I found it interesting how they analyse the Panamera concept in terms of looks, practicality and its potential.

    I also liked the reference to "WW not pandering to the whims of the Porsche armchair experts in chatrooms all over the worldwide web" Smiley

    This is an intelligent and entertaining article.  No bombast or precipitous conclusions here.  Thank you for posting!

    Re: CAR magazine on Panamera

    Thanks for posting!

     I like the summary "The Panamera is brilliant - but it's odd too."


    Re: CAR magazine on Panamera

    very interesting, thanks for sharing Reginos Smiley

     It says there is no Panamera diesel planned, but there wasn't any diesel Cayenne planned either, on the contrary it was openly denied up until now, so thats not very reassuring...

    At least until I see it on the flesh, from the pictures I still think its a Frankenstein design wise, and the fact that it can only seat 2 on the back instead of 3 is really unfortunate for a car in that class, its like the X6 of SUVs except the X6 is good looking... for a SUV.

    Thanks for posting, it's a good article and at least the journalist saw the car "in flesh" ....

    Re: CAR magazine on Panamera

    As regards the 4 seats only, according to the article the rear seats are individually reclining. So perhaps this feature was considered  more important than room for a fifth person?

    Also it says that they very rarely see more than 4 in cars of this class. I don't know if this is correct and if it applies everywhere.

    Or maybe, Porsche think that if you need to carry a fourth passenger you can always take the Cayenne from your garage Smiley

    Re: CAR magazine on Panamera

    Seats are definitely individually reclining ... and Panamera is definitely a 4 seater. Transmission tunnel is big and depending on the trim, central armrest is equipped with some fancy features/functions
