2018 Porsche Panamera review: Our expert's take

Porsche just launched a redesigned version of its Panamera luxury performance hatchback, and now it's adding a new Sport Turismo body style that gives the car a more traditional hatchback or wagon shape. The Sport Turismo offers a range of turbocharged drivetrains — including one that transforms the car into a plug-in hybrid — and an adaptive air suspension and all-wheel drive are standard.


The 2018 Panamera Sport Turismo hits dealerships at the end of the year with a starting price of $97,250 for the 4 trim level; $105,050 for the 4 E-Hybrid model; $110,250 for the 4S version; and $155,050 for the top-of-the-line Turbo (all prices include a $1,050 destination charge).

Porsche says the Sport Turismo has unique styling from the B-pillars back. The roofline is higher, which leads to larger side windows in back, and the rearmost roof pillar is more upright. It’s still forward-swept, though, which gives the design some additional athleticism.
A multiposition roof spoiler can provide more downforce as needed and is also used to minimize wind noise when the panoramic roof is open. Wheels as large as 21 inches in diameter are available.
The Panamera has been a four-seat car since its debut, but the Sport Turismo has room for up to five people with its three-person 40/20/40-split rear seat. Choosing the optional power-adjustable rear seats returns it to a four-seat configuration.
The Sport Turismo’s liftover height is only about two feet from the ground, so you don’t have to lift luggage that high when loading it. The cargo area measures 18.4 cubic feet, and with the rear seats folded, maximum cargo volume is 49 cubic feet. A cargo area management system with two rails in the floor and four tie-down points is optional.
Under the Hood
The Sport Turismo shares its engines with the regular Panamera. The base engine is a 330-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 while the 4S gets a 440-hp, twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 that accelerates the car from zero-to-60 mph in 4 seconds — 1 second quicker than the base engine. The 4 E-Hybrid also uses the 2.9-liter V-6 and gains an electric motor, while the Turbo features a 550-hp, twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 that can rocket it to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds.

Best car I ever owned

I have a Panamera 4 and it is the best car I have ever owned. After 5 years it has never let me down- not even once- and besides the recall notices that were always handled during regularly scheduled visits nothing has needed attention. The fit and finish and styling are still totally on point after all this time. The car looks and drives exactly like it did when new despite 30,000 miles. Also, I have 21’ wheels and thought I would have to replace the tires by now. However, they are chunky and full of tread. I drove 1000 miles in one day last week averaging 77mph and 29.5mpg. Great performance and a long drive in one day. It was so nice on the road and my body despite the longest drive of my life! Fit and finish, quality of the components, and tech that is totally up to date after 5 years. Wow. Loved it! I also own a cayenne and a 2015 Mercedes S class. The Mercedes is not close to the quality unfortunately.


dont spend the money.

have owned 356's for 55 yrs. this is my first new design . own it 3 wks and sooo disappointed..the looks are spectactular. thats what sold me. you get nothing for your money. the interior is nothing special and practically nothing comes with the car if you dont pay extra...i have the 4 which starts at 89,600 and you get practically nothing that a new Subaru Crosstrak that my friend just bgt comes with for 35k. however, it does handle great and the ride is very comfortable. the amenities stink. the memory is awful. you have to hold the button down till the seat comes up to your setting,instead of just pressing the setting button and letting go, and when shutting off the car it does not go all the way back to let u out, nor does the steering wheel move with your setting... i have had jags for 30 years as second cars and my 2005 was better. i do not reccomend this car.


Happy to have finally bought a Porsche!

As someone who is accustomed to full-size SUVs, lately I have wanted to get a sexy and sporty car. But since I have kids, the decision as to which car became difficult, until my wife suggested the Porsche Panamera. This car is both a comfortable sedan and a sexy sports car. It is a great choice!
