author photo by Colin Ryan November 2014

What Is It?

The 2015 Porsche Panamera Turbo S Executive Exclusive Series is an extremely limited edition -- only 100 of these cars will be built.

For this incarnation, Porsche's full-size luxury sedan comes with a longer wheelbase for more rear passenger space, plus 570 horsepower, 590 lb-ft of torque, all-wheel drive, the finest leather, the smartest rear seat entertainment system (with 10.1-inch touchscreens) and a two-tone, hand-applied exterior paint job. And that's on top of a chassis that deserves to wear the Porsche badge.

The 20-in Sport Classic wheels are finished in jet-black metallic for this car. There's also the option of a bespoke set of luggage made from the same ultra-soft Poltrona Frau Italian leather found in the cabin.

How Much?

$264,895, including $995 destination charges.

When Can You Get It?

If you're one of the lucky 100, waiting for an exclusive car is no big deal.

Other Cars to Consider

2015 Audi A8 L W12 -- It would take a serious plundering of the options list to get this ultimate A8 up past the $250,000 mark. So it may not be a direct rival, but it's still a cool piece of machinery.

2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 -- The Mercedes-Maybach S600 was unveiled at the 2014 LA Auto Show, just like the 2015 Porsche Panamera. Here's a sedan packed to the gills with everything you might desire.

Used Rolls-Royce Phantom -- Quite a bit less expensive than the Panamera. More sedate, though.

Used Bentley Mulsanne -- This car drives through a continent like it's going to invade it.
