Porsche Panameras are like the Camrys of rich people

I remember back in the day spotting a Porsche on the road was to be celebrated. A slack jaw, some drool, that pang of jealousy... the odd erection or two. » 1/23/14 10:46am 1/23/14 10:46am

Video: Can an Air Suspension Solve the "One Car for Everything" Problem?

As I noted when I reviewed the 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo recently, not everyone wants what I want, which is to say that not everyone wants 6 cars in their garage, each with a very specific purpose. For most people, that's just not realistic. A lot of these people want one car that does it all: practicality for the… » 10/15/13 2:59pm 10/15/13 2:59pm

Video: The 2014 Porsche Panamera is a Supercar and a Daily Driver in One

This is the new Panamera Turbo, and... no, really. This is the new Panamera Turbo, not the old one. They changed it, I swear. You just can't really see it unless you look close. See in that picture, they moved the license plate down and there's a new side skirt? Right, new, like I said. Some people don't like the… » 10/07/13 11:26am 10/07/13 11:26am

This Is Not A Porsche Panamera Key Fob

Remember the guy who swapped an old phone for a Porsche? Well, this is another shining example of marvellous business talent involving phones and Porsches: I give you the Panamera key shaped mobile straight from China! » 1/17/13 12:00pm 1/17/13 12:00pm

Aussies Get Porsche Panamera Police Patrol Car

After trying the Porsche Panamera out with a toddler for a couple weeks, I can absolutely say it's a terrific vehicle for taking a person, throwing them in the back in restraints, and then driving really, really fast. Which means it's not just a great toddler car, it'd make a great police car. The New South Wales… » 9/20/12 2:30pm 9/20/12 2:30pm

Will It Baby: Porsche Panamera Turbo S

I don't think Porsche is pushing the Panamera Turbo S as a kid-hauler. I think it's more targeted at rich guys who have friends that get embarrassed when you remind them they're a Baron. Probably three such friends, otherwise our hypothetical Baron would be driving a 911. » 9/05/12 2:30pm 9/05/12 2:30pm

Ruf Panamera XL Stretches For China

The Chinese car market is famous for preferring chauffeur-driven SUVs and limos to hard-riding sports cars. Thus, it's not surprising Ruf's first Chinese market-only vehicle won't be a tuned 911, but a Porsche Panamera stretched by nearly 16 inches. » 1/13/12 12:00pm 1/13/12 12:00pm

Qatari police have a gigantic fleet of Porsches

Qatar's recent National Day parade was like that in many other countries: it featured military and police vehicles. Unlike those other countries, Qatar has cash to burn and a sultan's taste for the good life. The vehicles of choice? Porsche Cayennes and Panameras. » 12/28/11 2:30pm 12/28/11 2:30pm

Porsche Panamera GTS: Faster, lower, better

For Porsche, the Los Angeles show wasn't only about the 2012 Porsche 911. They also showed the long-awaited Panamera GTS. Like the design or hate it, this is the one we've been waiting for — the one with the more powerful naturally-aspirated V8 and sport-tuned suspension. » 11/17/11 12:30pm 11/17/11 12:30pm

Delta shuttling frequent flyers in Porsches

Remember that time you'd just barely survived a US Airways flight into Atlanta, fought your way through a crowded hellscape of angry travelers, and then had to drag your bags to your car only to see some pampered Delta customer get into a brand new Porsche? You weren't hallucinating. » 11/04/11 3:00pm 11/04/11 3:00pm

The Porsche Panamera Turbo S is a bootylicious power boost

If you believed the real problem with the Porsche Panamera is it just needed a bit more power — and not that it's a four-door Porsche — then today's your lucky day. Here's the 550 HP Porsche Panamera Turbo S. » 3/30/11 8:10am 3/30/11 8:10am

Sylvester Stallone deems his Porsche Panamera expendable

Sequels, no matter their critical appeal, deliver big paydays whether they hail from Hollywood or Stuttgart, which is why finding that Sylvester Stallone owned a Porsche Panamera 4S seems like the most logical paring of star and car in years. » 3/28/11 11:00am 3/28/11 11:00am

ASMA Porsche Panamera: More Scoops Than An Ice Cream Truck

Lord knows the Porsche Panamera doesn't get raves for its exterior design. Leave it to German tuner ASMA to produce a Panamera that makes the unadorned original a model of restraint and elegance. » 9/27/10 5:15pm 9/27/10 5:15pm

Kanye West Doesn't Care About Black Porsches

In Russia, Tuner Murders-Out Porsche Panamera

Russian tuner TopCar has unveiled its Porsche Panamera Stingray, a matte-black beast tuned up to 750HP with enough add-on body bits to diminish the unbecoming derriere. Why is it tuners can manage this, but Porsche could not? » 6/02/10 2:00pm 6/02/10 2:00pm

Porsche Recalls Every Panamera Ever Built

Porsche has recalled every Panamera ever built to repair faulty seatbelt tensioners. Though seatbelts can be replaced, we're told there is still no fix yet for the car's horrific case of misshapen ass disease. (Hat tip to Chuck!) [Autocar] » 4/28/10 2:00pm 4/28/10 2:00pm

This Porsche Is How Pirates Closer Octavio Dotel Lives With Himself

Pirates Closer Octavio Dotel gave up four runs to the Brewers in the ninth inning yesterday. Not a great performance, but they were already down 16-to-0. For comfort, Dotel can cry into the leather seats of his custom Porsche Panamera. » 4/23/10 2:30pm 4/23/10 2:30pm
