Porsche has toyed with the idea of offering a four-door sedan in the past. The company even built a couple of design studies, but if you ever saw them you would know why they never made it to production. Suffice it to say, they were ugly. Recognizing the sales potential for a sport tourer, Porsche is offering its first sedan for 2010. Developed to take on the likes of the Audi A8, BMW M5 and 7 Series, Maserati Quattroporte, and Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the 2010 Panamera offers luxury and interior refinement never before seen from Porsche. Whether this grandiose grand tourer is better looking than those earlier design exercises is in the eye of the beholder, but it certainly offers power and handling worthy of a Porsche. Let’s take a look at 10 things potential buyers should know when considering the new Panamera.
