Porsche Panamera V6


No big news here. We all knew that the new Porsche sedan was going to get a V6 base model.

A few years ago, 300hp was pretty much what you’d get out of a V8.
But now, at least here in the US, you can get a $25 000 Camaro or 2011 Mustang with even more power from a smooth and refined V6.
So a 300hp $75 000 Porsche sedan doesn’t sound that amazing.
Here is the official word:
The Panamera and Panamera 4, the model line’s new entry level versions, will be in Porsche dealerships in June 2010. Both feature a brand-new 3.6-liter V6 with Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) developing 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The Panamera transmits its power to the road via the rear wheels, while the Panamera 4 comes standard with active all-wheel drive. U.S. models will include Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), Porsche’s new and revolutionary seven-speed double-clutch gearbox, as standard equipment.
Both models will be making their world debut at the Beijing Motor Show on April 23, 2010. The Panamera and Panamera 4 MSRPs are $74,400 and $78,900, respectively.”

  1. VINCES SAID: "300hp $75 000 Porsche sedan doesn't sound that amazing" but I say:

    I'd buy it.

    More cache than a generic $75k Mercedes or Lexus.

    The uniqueness of the styling alone is worth the money.

    At $75k a car's gotta have charisma. And this does. That makes it a winner, in my book!

  2. just an overweight piece of shit, this is how would you make a beautiful car ugly. the same shit as Cayenne, JUNK and UGLY!

  3. I had thought it looked odd in pictures too until I saw it the other day. Pretty interesting piece of machine. I liked it.
