2012 Porsche Panamera Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Porsche Panamera

  • All Panameras emit a pleasant and distant growl. There is an optional sport exhaust with flaps that can be activated at the push of a button. We still wish it were louder, but Porsche insists Panamera buyers have matured beyond our juvenile state of mind.

    - Car and Driver
  • Porsche has been fanatical in trimming unnecessary pounds and has extensively employed lightweight materials up front to offset the engine's mass.

What reviewers liked least about the Porsche Panamera

  • A standard stop/start system will turn off the engine every time you stop, with the engine the reignited as soon as you touch the gas. This device will up fuel economy in the city, but it takes some getting used to. In Europe, the Panamera was governmentally certified with the system in operation, and therefore, you need to turn it off with a button if you don't care for it. In the U.S., however, Porsche was unsure about customer reaction, so therefore, the process is reversed. The stop/start system is off every time you start a journey, and you need to push a button to engage it.

Best one-liner about the Porsche Panamera

  • The Panamera was engineered to seat four passengers in comfort, and that goal has been reached with flying colors.

    - Car and Driver
  • In typical fashion, Porsche hasn't just done its homework here, it's rewritten the textbook.
