Tuesday, December 30th, 2008
Viewed from any angle, the Porsche Panamera can rival with more expensive brands like the Lamborghini Estoque and the Aston Martin Rapide.

The Panamera may be inspired by the revised Boxster and Cayman judging it on its looks. It is a wide sedan at 75 inches and measures 55 inches in height and 195.7 inches in length. We saw this car on a Porsche FanBlog a couple months ago — and it’s really coming along now!

The entry level engine will be a 3.6 L Volkswagen with six cylinders and outputting 300 horsepower. The S variant of the Panamera will roar at 400 horsepower supplied bt a 4.8L V8 engine. The Turbo model will blaze the roads with 500 horsepower. All these models are equipped with the PDK gearbox which is dual clutch.
