The Porsche Panamera in PersonPosted by: David Hurth / Category: Commentary
I’ve heard many people say that they would reserve judgment of the styling of the new Porsche Panamera until they see one in person and I have said the same. Well, On a recently trip to Las Vegas, I was fortunate enough to see a Panamera in person and was blown away at what it looked like.
In person the car looks quite a bit different than it does on TV or in magazines. From the front it resembles a 911 or Cayman with some slight styling differences. The car is a good size car, but doesn’t seem as long as it appears in pictures. The back appears to have a little steeper slope than what it looks like in most pictures and the car sounds great.
Although for me it is hard to think of a Porsche having more than two doors, the Panamera appears to be a very great four door sports sedan that is about as close as you can get to a sports car in a sedan and by it’s performance and appearance looks to be worthy of the badge. Now perhaps they will use it as the basis of a new GT sports car (almost a new version of the 928 as the rumors out there are saying).
