A lot of car for the money!

This car met all of my exceptions, so much I bought another one. The Porsche Panamera is sporty, elegant and reliable. It's worth the drive.

Second Porsche

This vehicle meets all our need as a family. Plenty of leg room. Love the color contrast with exterior and interior. Im very happy with this purchase.

5.0

Most fun and comfortable car I've owned

This car has everything I could think of in the interior that makes it practical and luxurious at the same time. I love the performance, you could be going 80+ and it not feel like it! Needless to say it is a lot of fun to drive, the aesthetics of it turn heads anywhere you go!
