La Porsche Panamera pourrait enlever le haut

Jusqu’à une époque pas si éloignée, la Porsche Panamera était au top sur le segment des berlines sportives de luxe, avec plus de 38.400 exemplaires vendus l’an dernier, soit une hausse de 38 % par rapport à l’année précédente. Un succès qui s’explique par son style, sa polyvalence et ses performances, lui permettant de largement se démarquer de la concurrence, faite de BMW Série 7, Mercedes Classe S et autres Maserati Quattroporte. Oui mais voilà, malgré un renouvellement complet en 2017, la sportive de Stuttgart prend un peu d’âge se fait désormais voler la vedette par de nouvelles arrivantes, et en particulier une : la BMW Série 8. Plus récente, et offrant plus de déclinaisons, dont un cabriolet, l’allemande a de quoi effrayer sa compatriote.

Mais loin de se laisser faire, Porsche a plus d’un tour dans son sac, et travaillerait déjà activement sur l’offensive pour rester dans la course. Si rien n’a encore vraiment été confirmé, les rumeurs parlent déjà de nouvelles variantes inédites de la berline, dont la seule folie se résume actuellement à une version break. Concrètement, et pour notre plus grand plaisir, il faudrait alors s’attendre à une déclinaison deux portes, ainsi qu’à un cabriolet, afin d’entrer en…

Un Porsche Panamera coupé l’an prochain ?

Le coupé Panamera de Porsche devait attendre. L’attente pourrait prendre prochainement fin. Depuis de nombreuses années, il est question d’une déclinaison coupé voire cabriolet de la Porsche Panamera. L’héritage de la 928, dans toutes ses versions, notamment les dernières S4 et GT, a même été invoqué et évoqué. Et puis, la Panamera fit le break […]

Which Super Fast Euro Lux Family Hatch Brakes Better? — Porsche Panamera Vs. Ferrari GT4C Lusso

Gorgeous settings, two staggering cars, and a frightening challenge ahead.

Matt LeBlanc, sat snugly in the enveloping seats of his Ferrari GTC4Lusso, uses all 680 horsepower available to sprint down this picturesque runway with almost reckless abandon. At the end of the straight, a craggy stretch of rocks are all that separate him from the sea.

He’s not doing it for daredevil points alone; he’s challenging Chris Harris to try and hit the highest speed before hitting the brakes. It’s primarily a demonstration of straightline speed, though the danger at the end of the straight makes getting to 200 miles an hour before stomping on the brakes a real test of courage, and not simply power.

Since Joey—err, Matt—has some 140 horsepower over Harris and his Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, Harris tries to use his know-how, superior skills, and guts to even the playing field.

Predictably, it’s Harris who is the braver of the two on the binders, but even when utilizing the Porsche’s launch control and overboost functions, he can’t quite match the Lusso at the end of the straight. Power is power.

Though the view from the side window doesn’t quite match the windshield, the spectacle is gorgeous.

The greenscreen comments in the comments section might hold some water—no pun intended. Note the motionless sea and the slightly strange onboard footage at around 1:29. Whether or not the footage is modified to favor the Ferrari, it’s still an impressive demonstration that these two plush can carry their drivers comfortably to nearly 200 miles an hour before stopping confidently in a short space.

Not bad for cars that can brave snowy weather and cruise casually to the golf course.

The Panamera Turbo S e-Hybrid Contains A Wonderful Dichotomy


Porsche’s big wagon has nearly 700 horsepower, it’ll go nearly 200 miles per hour, and it weighs more than 5000 pounds. Somehow it is big and comfortable but also incredibly sporty. Somehow it manages to dawdle around in silent electric-only mode, then seconds later crank up a huge turbocharged V8 when you swap to Sport mode. It can move five people in comfort, as well as all of their stuff. It can also haul ass. Carfection reviewer Henry Catchpole says « It’s a bit like a 918 Spyder in this [wagon] body, » and I don’t know about you, but that sounds tremendous.

The Panamera Turbo S e-Hybrid Sport Turismo is one of the longest names in Porsche nomenclature history, but it all sort of makes sense when you boil it down. Obviously it’s a Panamera. The Turbo S means it has a 550 horsepower turbocharged 4-liter V8. The e-Hybrid bit gives the car a 136 horsepower electric power bump. And finally, Sport Turismo means it’s got a humpback that can fit your tall luggage better than the standard Panamera body with a trunk.

« Possibly the most ridiculous car I think I’ve ever driven »

And of course Henry means ridiculous in the most endearing way possible. This car is a step toward everything for every driver. It’s fast and fun and incredibly loud when you want it to be, but calm and quiet and eco conscious when you need it to be. This is imperative for many large European cities, which don’t allow cars to run on gasoline power in city centers without paying a quite hefty fee. You can easily swap to eco mode and crawl around the city on full EV power before you head out to the country for a romp around on full turbo power. It’s the best of both worlds.
