2010 Porsche Panamera is the first luxury 4-door of  Porsche sedan.  

Outside, the Panamera is Usain Bolt in sheetmetal.  There’s no mistake that it is a Porsche from the front view, with swept headlights and a power dome on the hood. LED Daytime Running Lamps flank each lower corner, a look created by fellow German brand, Audi. The rear looks like a variation of the 911 with a bit more edge, and features a power hatch. The Panamera body is fully galvanized and is made of various metals, including magnesium, aluminum, and multiple grades of super high strength steel. The body is tight, and exceptionally rattle free.

The Panamera is a front engined and rear wheel drive sports car. The Porsche Panamera will have three models using three different engine choices, the Panamera S using a 4.8-liter V-8 with 400 horsepower, the all-wheel-drive Panamera 4S using a 4.8-liter V-8 with 405 horsepower and the all-wheel-drive Panamera Turbo features a turbocharged 4.8-liter V-8 with 500 horsepower.

The V-6 and V-8 normal aspirated versions of the Panamera come as standard with rear-wheel drive. V-8 engines will reportedly be from the Cayenne, naturally aspirated (385 hp) and turbocharged (500 hp) versions of the 4.8-liter V-8, and Porsche certainly has the capability to raise the power for each by launch. There are also rumors of the Cayenne’s V-6 option being available as well as a top-of-the-range version of the block that powers the Porsche Carrera GT.

Porsche’s Leipzig factory will build the vehicle alongside the Cayenne. The top model in the range with its turbocharged power unit, in turn, features PTM (Porsche Traction Management) with extra-light, active all-wheel drive. PTM is also available on the other models.
