2014 Porsche Panamera Exterior
The 2014 Porsche Panamera is classified as a sedan, but its hatchback-style trunk delivers styling that is unlike anything else on the road. The sleek front grille of the 2014 Panamera is unmistakably a Porsche, and standard 18-inch wheels and LED headlights complete the commanding on-road presence of the flagship luxury sedan.
2014 Porsche Panamera Performance
Powering the 2014 Porsche Panamera is an all-new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that generates 420 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque, which propels base Panameras from 0-60 mph in the mid-four-second range. The Panamera GTS is powered by a 4.8-liter V8 that pumps out 440 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque, and the Panamera Turbo boosts those numbers to an immense 520 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque by twin-turbocharging the same V8 that powers the GTS.

Automatic stop-start technology is standard on every 2014 Panamera to increase fuel economy. The 2014 Porsche Panamera’s base V6 returns 17 mpg city and 26 mpg highway, and the high-performing V8 engine still manages to return 16 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.
