Model Reviewed: Porsche Panamera 4S

Strength:

Interior is very well appointed and luxurious. Great touch screen Nav. Sound system is very good. Acceleration and handling is all Porsche fantastic. Plenty of space. 4 large adults could fit very easily.

Weakness:

Options are costly. But that is Porsche

A real head-turner!! I get a ton of compliments on this car. When I am passing folks I read a lot of lips saying "NICE CAR!" I thoroughly happy with my purchase. I really wanted a 911 but as a daily driver it is very low and not as smooth a ride. This car is great for the 40+ crowd that wants a little of both the sporty and luxury worlds. If only it was a convertible I would have hit the grand slam!

Model Reviewed: Panamera 4S

Strength:

Literally everything; especially inside, and all that occurs after ignition. The looks grow on you because you soon realize each and every exterior facet is there for a reason. In answer to critiques of the looks, try this; go on the neat MSN feature comparing photos of your 2 car selections: every feature inside and out; put in the Audi, the Mercedes, BMW, Lexus side by side Panamera, especially interior shots (shots of new XJ, which would do better than most, not yet available); try to tell the others apart from side views; or the Lexis from the BMW rear at a glance; or the interiors from each car's 1999 versions of same (or for some: 1989 versions!). Its an amazingly revealing exercise!

Weakness:

"Does my rear end look big to you?" Are there some poor sight lines? If the "cure" means changing a single dynamic of this machine, then don't do it. I can carry two 6'3" passengers in the rear, or two bikes with the seats folded, get 0 to 60 in 4.5, without a gas guzzler tax and its an ultra low emissions vehicle like your Honda Civic. Oh, and it turns real good. There is NOTHING to dislike about this vehicle! Yes I am biased, because I selected it out of all the cars in the world and feel completely gratified (OK: I did not cross shop Veyron, RR, etc. -- but new Jag XJ did come close: not "very" -- but close).

First time Porsche buyer: ecstatically happy with my 4s and am surprised at purists who deride the look: it "purely" wraps the car's epic achievements, isn't that the essence of Porsche? Its presence on the street gives off a positive aura; people give it a thumbs up: I'm amazed at the positive comments even from gracious drivers of prime competing cars. On top of that it's light weight, incredibly fast for (relatively) modest horsepower yet gets no fuel guzzler tax and is an ultra low emissions vehicle. Plus, the purists wouldn’t even have their "pure" cars without the profit generated by the likes of these; and now Panamera is the best selling model! (Why slap someone who saved your loved one from drowning?) I grow more fond of it each day and sneak out to look at it often; it has a "1940's" sensibility to the side and rear view which is unique. It will be around for a while just because the machine is magnificent in every possible way; purists please get used to it.
