click above image to view more pics of the Porsche Panamera's interior

Though the Porsche Panamera's exterior has been shot extensively by spy photographers, the interior has remained much more elusive. Leave it to Brenda Priddy & Co. to end the mystery. Here we have what are believed to be the first interior shots of Porsche's four-door coupe, and what they show is a domicile that's one-part Porsche and one-part electronics store. Seriously, it looks like a Best Buy threw up on the dash. The center console is dominated by a big navi screen that's surrounded by tiny buttons - so German. Below that is something we can't quite make out. It looks like the HVAC controls with two large but flat knobs flanking a small display. Though the pics are blurry, you can clearly make out red and blue lines, which usually indicate hot and cold temperatures on an HVAC system. The gauges themselves appear to be the same as those found in other Porsches like the Cayenne, with two large gauges for the tach and speedo that frame a smaller information display. Two more smaller gauges hang out on either side, as well. The floor-mounted shifter, meanwhile, is nestled between two rows of four buttons each. Immediately aft of the shifter is an i-Drive like knob and another big red button, probably for the ejector seat. We kid, we kid. There are no doubt elements in this particular interior that are present for testing purposes only and won't be found in the final production version.

      there should be a law prohibiting porsches with more than two doors

      I thought I already saw a picture of the interior from that guy who saw 6 of them staying at that same Hotel as him.

      Porsche should focus on making the Cayman a better, faster, car. The Panera is only good if it makes enough bread for Porsche to finally kill off the 911 that's holding back the Cayman.

      I'll take a Maserati Quattroporte over that any day.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I would gladly take either of the two, seeing as I can't afford them anyway.

      why is this being posted. It is an obvious photochop. First off its the same picture 3 times (look at the tracer pattern on the hvac lights, they are the same in all three shots which couldnt happen unless you shook the camera the same each time. Then the center console doesnt have that same shake, and is in sharper focus. It may be the panamera interior but someone doctored it

        agreed. they either go the dash way out of focus and shopped in a standard Porsche nav/audio system or they it was covered up and they took an educated guess. nonetheless we should be questioning the source of this crap...

        I'm no photo expert but I could tell something looked off, especially in the reflection of the glass.

      Ja hässlich... schade... schade...

        Ich würd sagen du machst erstmal deinen Führerschein, Dummerchen!

      Is it me or does it look kinda like a G35 from the side.
        • 7 Years Ago
        In every article about a sports coupe/coupe-sedan, without fail, someone invariably says it looks like a G35.

        Does this mean?
        A) Nissan stole styling cues from all carmakers?
        B) The G35 is so generic it looks like everything else?
        or
        C) The person making the comment needs their eyes checked?

      That car has an ass like star jones.

      I hope it doesnt look that fat in production form.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Ugly.

      Not a deep thought, and I don't care.

      maybe the next time someone decides to photo-shop an interrior, they'll be wise enough to apply the same blur effect to the entire shot, as opposed to making the nav area appear chrisply in focus, loosing any distortion the glass provided for the rest of the interrior. pathetic.

      All the stuff in there is just glued in. It looks like a working prototype but it's not meant to represent design.

      This was a Great Line, John:
      Seriously, it looks like a Best Buy threw up on the dash
