2009 Car of the Week

Motor Mouth’s Car of the week: Porsche Panamera

It’s a Porsche, all right, but not as we know it. Count the doors. Count the seats – four of each. It’s a fully-fledged grand tourer but with the unmistakeable Porsche DNA coursing through it.

The Panamera takes its styling cues from the curvaceous 911 and its sexy offspring and is light years away from Porsche’s gigantic Cayenne, a grotesque gas-glugger that cocks a snook at moderation in these trying times.

German to its fingertips, Porsche’s latest work of art gets its power from a range of V6 and V8 engines, has rear-wheel or optional four-wheel-drive and will later be offered with a more economical hybrid engine. It will be starring on Europe’s catwalks this summer.

MM verdict: Genuinely gorgeous supercar with room for the family.
