Used Porsche Panamera for sale
First unveiled in 2009, the Porsche Panamera certainly stood out thanks to its interesting looks. Here we are taking a look at the second generation version, which came along in 2017 with much more handsome and matured style.
Despite its large saloon car size and stance, the Panamera is actually a hatchback, but its swooping lines ensure it stands out from your regular saloon and family hatch. There is also a Sport Turismo version, which flaunts a curvaceous estate-like silhouette.
Think of the Panamera as a more stylish saloon or estate, with typical Porsche sports car dynamics. Other reasons to consider a Porsche Panamera are listed below.
- Porsche sports car performance
- Premium fit and finish
- Unique and classy looks
- Quick and great to drive
- Saloon and Sport Turismo versions
Engines and Driving Experience
Porsche is famed for its textbook sports cars, and so it's no surprise to see that the Panamera is a fast and dynamic car. Multiple versions and petrol engines are available, which are highlighted below.
- Panamera: 2.9-litre twin-turbo, 326bhp, 0 to 62mph in 5.6 seconds
- Panamera 4/Panamera 4 Sport Turismo: 2.9-litre twin-turbo, 326bhp, 0 to 62mph in 5.3 seconds
- Panamera 4S/Panamera 4S Sport Turismo: 2.9-litre twin-turbo, 434bhp, 0 to 62mph in 4.1 seconds, or 3.9 with Sport Chrono Package
- Panamera 4 E-Hybrid/Panamera 4 E-Hybrid: 2.9-litre twin-turbo with electric motor totalling 434bhp, 0 to 62mph in 4.4 seconds
- Panamera 4S E-Hybrid/Panamera 4S E-Hybrid: 2.9-litre twin-turbo with electric motor totalling 552bhp, 0 to 62mph in 3.7 seconds
- Panamera GTS/Panamera GTS Sport Turismo: 4.0-litre turbo V8, 473bhp, 0 to 62mph in 3.9 seconds
- Panamera Turbo S/Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo: 4.0-litre turbo V8, 621bhp, 0 to 62mph in 3.1 seconds
- Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid/Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo: 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 with electric motor totalling 690bhp, 0 to 62mph in 3.2 seconds
Practicality and Running Costs
Running a Porsche is never going to be cheap, but the entry-level Panamera can return a reasonable 27mpg, whilst the most efficient 4S E-Hybrid model can return a hugely impressive 128mpg - whilst still being able to do 0 to 62mph in just 3.7 seconds. The only drawback will be the cost of course, as the hybrid will be more expensive to buy initially.
As for practicality, both bodystyles of the Panamera have plenty of space, and the Executive trim gives an increased 150mm wheelbase, meaning even more room for occupants.
At 495 litres, the Panamera's boot is a large size whilst the Sport Turismo estate body will match the Mercedes-Benz CLS at 520 litres. The Audi RS7 has a similar sleek body to the regular Porsche Panamera, but offers even more impressive space with 535 litres, whilst the Audi RS6 Avant (estate version of the RS7) goes even further with 565 litres.
As for servicing, we would recommend using a specialist such as Stratstone Porsche.
Interior, Technology and Safety
As interiors go, the Panamera is up there with some of the most impressive cabin spaces available, with fine material choice, sharp design and superb detailing.
Like the iconic Porsche 911, the Panamera's central rev counter is analogue, whilst the accompanying dials are digital. This is a cool nod to Porsche traditions and works very well. There's a large widescreen infotainment screen too, which adds further wow-factor to the cabin, along with leather and beautifully finished switchgear.
Wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, sat nav, all-round parking sensors and keyless go are just some of the standard tech. There are no real trim levels as such, but with the more premium models such as the GTS and Turbo S you get better standard kit and can find used models with more exclusive features. One of these is the Sport Chrono Package which adds a launch control system, stopwatch and steering mounted modes dial.
Due to its exclusivity, there is no Euro NCAP score. However, all Panameras come standard with:
- Multiple airbags
- Porsche side-impact protection system
- Electronic stability control
- ISOFIX child-seat mounting points
Is the Porsche Panamera right for me?
If you want require supercar levels of performance with saloon/estate car levels of space, then the Porsche Panamera is well worth a look.
It's much more special than that of a Mercedes-Benz CLS, and offers higher performance and quality. Although the CLS can be purchased cheaper when used.
Audi's RS6 and RS7 are perhaps ideal alternatives due to their similar supercar-like performance and character. The RS6 being the Sport Turismo competitor whilst the RS7 takes on the regular Panamera saloon. Both Audi's offer incredible performance with beautifully crafted interiors.
A test drive will surely help in choosing between these incredible performance cars.
