Which Panamera is the Best?

With any Porsche, sample as many model combinations as you can. We’re particularly fond of the Panamera GTS Sport Turismo because we like the idea of having a practical V8-powered European wagon with AWD and a phenomenal top track speed of 186 mph. But even at the base level, the Porsche Panamera is a thrilling ride, and the monstrously quick PHEVs further underscore the technological might of those talented engineers in Stuttgart.

How Much Does a 2021 Porsche Panamera Cost?

The 2021 Porsche Panamera remains available in three body styles: a standard-wheelbase hatchback, a wagon based on the standard wheelbase (known as the Sport Turismo), and an extended-wheelbase hatchback called the Executive. The standard and Executive body styles seat four, while the Sport Turismo has seating for five. It’s actually more of a “4 + 1” arrangement because the center seat in the back is best suited for kids. The Executive, with 5.9 extra inches of wheelbase, adds more rear legroom, rear-wheel steering, an adaptive air suspension, soft-close doors, heated rear seats, and an enhanced rear-center console. Lane-keep Assist is standard on all 2021 Panamera models, along with Traffic Sign Recognition. Any time you see the number 4 in the name of a Panamera, that means it has AWD. The standard Panamera ($87,200) and AWD Panamera 4 ($91,800 standard; $98,000 Sport Turismo; $98,500 Executive) come standard with an adaptive suspension (PASM), a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated 8-way power front seats, partial leather upholstery, the PCM touchscreen interface, Connect Plus (remote vehicle services, onboard internet, vehicle tracking), Apple CarPlay, three USB ports, and a 10-speaker sound system. The powerful Panamera 4S ($105,000 standard; $111,200 Sport Turismo; $116,300 Executive) adds a stronger engine and different 19-in wheels. The Panamera GTS ($129,300 standard; $135,500 Sport Turismo) is a more driver-oriented version of the Panamera that splits the difference between the 4S and the new Turbo S. The GTS is the entry-level V8 model which on top of the engine upgrade adds a sport exhaust, adaptive headlights, better brakes, and 20-inch wheels. The new Panamera Turbo S ($177,700 standard; $181,700 Sport Turismo; $188,100 Executive) features an improved twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with 620 hp and 605 lb-ft of torque. The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid ($103,800 standard; $107,00 Sport Turismo; $108,300 Executive) models have a plug-in hybrid powertrain, and it’s joined this year by the new Panamera 4 S E-Hybrid ($113,300 standard; $117,300 Sport Turismo; $124,600 Executive), which has 552 hp and a performance level similar to the discontinued Panamera Turbo. If you’re keen on having the ultimate Panamera, it’s the Turbo S E-Hybrid ($187,700 standard; $191,700 Sport Turismo; $198,100 Executive). In addition to a hybrid powertrain with 689 total hp, the 2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid has air suspension, a full leather interior, heated rear seats, adaptive LED headlights, a power-adjustable steering wheel, an Alcantara headliner, and a 14-speaker Bose Surround Sound audio system. The destination fee for the 2021 Porsche Panamera remains at $1,350. Much of the equipment from upmarket Panamera models is optional on the standard Panamera (if there is such a thing). Notable options include the pricey but long-lasting carbon-ceramic brakes, a blind-spot monitor,   adaptive cruise control (with forward-collision warning), a head-up display, an enhanced adaptive cruise control system with semi-autonomous functionality, a surround-view camera, night-vision assistance, 14-way adaptive seats, 8-way power rear seats, seat ventilation, massaging seats, a heated steering wheel, power rear sunshades, a rear-seat entertainment system, and a 21-speaker Burmester premium audio system.

Is the 2021 Porsche Panamera a Safe Car?

Every 2021 Panamera has Lane Keep Assist, which provides automatic steering assistance to keep this large Porsche in its lane. It’s complemented by Traffic Sign Recognition. With this technology, camera and navigation data are used to detect speed limits and no-passing zones. The information then is displayed on the Panamera's instrument panel. By using the camera and navigational data, even temporary speed restrictions (such as spots where there is road construction) can be observed. Also noteworthy: Traffic Sign Recognition is enhanced by what Porsche calls “corner notification.” Using navigational data and the camera’s recognition of road signs, the system displays an arrowed directional graphic on the instrument panel long before you reach a tight corner on your prescribed route. Other standard safety tech on the 2021 Porsche Panamera includes Emergency Brake Assist, which reduces braking distances in emergency situations.

2021 Porsche Panamera vs the competition

2021 Mercedes-Benz CLS – The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class "4-door coupe" offers a supple ride, a lavish interior and tech that’s a little more user-friendly than the Panamera’s. The CLS-Class is more affordable, too. If you want supercar performance from your Mercedes, consider a Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door Coupe. 2021 Audi A7, S7 or RS 7 – This trio of Audis is close to the Panamera in concept. As a range-topping RS 7, it can hang with the Panamera Turbo S. 2021 Tesla Model S – Even if you're not considering the E-Hybrid models, the flagship Tesla offers space and performance comparable to that of any Panamera. Tesla's electric powertrains offer great appeal, but its reliability, build quality, and dealer network pale in comparison to Porsche's. Used Porsche Panamera – We know Porsche pricing can get eye-watering, so consider a used model from 2017 or newer if you want a second-generation Panamera at a discount. Porsche has one of the best certified pre-owned programs in the business, which makes CPO models worthy of serious consideration. 2021 Porsche Taycan –  If the Panamera PHEVs appeal to you, why not consider going fully electric with a Porsche Taycan? This electric Porsche sedan isn’t quite as roomy as the Panamera, but it is fun to drive and it has a range of about 200 miles.
