There are only a handful of four-doors in the world that can top 190 mph, accelerate to 60 mph in under 3.5 seconds and coddle their occupants in extreme luxury. The 2018 Porsche Panamera is one of them. Porsche is best known for its sports cars, most significantly the 911, which has been in production since 1965. But the German carmaker has also been selling SUVs since 2002 and added the Panamera, a four-door hatchback with optional all-wheel drive, in 2010.
Like the rest of Porsche’s highly praised lineup, the 2018 Panamera delivers a unique combination of style, luxury, and performance. Now in its second generation, it’s one of our favorites in the extremely competitive large luxury sedan class, where it competes against the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S Class, Audi A7 and A8, and Aston Martin Rapide.
