The Panamera is a different kind of Porsche.
It's a four-door sedan, a really fast sedan. The Panamera S at $89,800 comes with a 400hp 4.8-liter V8, capable of punching out 0-to-60 mph in 5.2 seconds and a top speed of 175 mph. Not quick enough for you? Move up to the Panamera Turbo, with a twin-turbo 4.8-liter V8, 0-to-60 mph in 4 seconds, and a top speed of 188. That bad boy will retail for $132,600.
So why is the Audiophiliac filling space with upcoming German super sedans? 'Cause they're going to … Read more

Porsche's upcoming Panamera, err, wagon (or as I like to call it, the Cayenne for acrophobes) has been revealed in all of its officially photographed glory.
Based on the specs released by Porsche, the Panamera is slightly longer than the Cayenne and much shorter vertically. In the photos, we can see the dual-element headlamps with integrated turn signals, which were introduced on the new 911 and continued on the freshly minted Cayman and Boxter. We also see the air dam-located daytime running lamps. The profile is decidedly Porsche, albeit a bit distorted to make room for the two additional … Read more
At the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show, Porsche subtlety redesigned the Boxster and the Cayman, but made sure that the two cars stayed true to their roots.
At the 2008 LA Auto Show, Porsche unveiled its new Boxster and Cayman models, presented alongside the first Porsche ever, a 1940s-era Porsche 356.
While the tweaked exteriors aren't drastically different from the previous generation, the technology under the hood has changed quite a bit. Four new, larger engines are also more efficient, thanks to the inclusion of direct injection technology and optional PDK double-clutch transmission.

We've had a peek at the tail end of the upcoming Porsche Panamera when the world's sportiest wagon was spied in San Francisco. We've had a look at the dash when photos of the interior leaked onto the Net.
In this teaser video--produced by Porsche, I must add--we get a good long look at the exterior of the porky Porsche in motion. My first impressions are better than I expected, but it still like a squashed and flattened Cayenne. Enjoy.
Spy photos of the Panamera--Porsche's upcoming wagon, for lack of a better term--have been leaking all over the Web for some time now. Only recently have we been able to see the vehicle's interior.
We expected the typical German button-heavy interface. Just one look at the Cayenne's interior and you'll see that Porsche isn't afraid to slap a bunch of buttons on the dash. However, these somewhat blurry spy shots show that perhaps an intervention is required to curb Porsche's button addiction.
A quick eyeball count shows a whopping 44 buttons and switches … Read more
