Sumantra's review on Porsche Panamera S
Year of Manufacture : 2010 | Driven no. of Kms. : NA
- Pros: The Porsche Panamera handles brilliantly, has enough space for four, and most versions go like a bat out of hell. The cabin is one of the finest around, too.
- Cons: It\'s practical for a Porsche, but rival fast saloons are better on that score. It\'s pricey to buy and run, and the centre console is cluttered.
There area unit three.6-litre V6 or four.8-litre V8 petrol engines, furthermore as a hybrid that uses a three.0-litre engine with an electrical motor, and a diesel - and none is brief of pace. The V8 S and 4S area unit quick, however the performance is easy instead of flight. The GTS encompasses a slightly additional powerful version, however a similar is true. within the Turbo, acceleration is brutal - and therefore the Turbo S is quicker still. The diesel is usefully versatile, however with the V6 petrol, you are responsive to having to figure it onerous. Most Panameras ride on standard steel springs and you'll switch between 3 settings: Comfort, Sport or Sport and. The GTS and Turbo models have air suspension (optional on the opposite models), that has a similar settings. Whichever you decide on, the ride is firm around city, however supple at speed. Despite its size, the Panamera handles sort of a ‘proper’ Porsche, however the Hybrid runs wide prior to a standard model, particularly if you specify low-rolling-resistance tyres. Its a pleasant war once ever i got it.
