Four-door coupe? Price-wise, the new $88,000 "Panamera V-6 that went on sale this summer lines up with other full-size luxury sedans with sporting road manners", like the Audi A8 and Jaguar XJ, with a similar footprint on the road as well. Then consider that the Panamera V-6 also offers an all-wheel-drive option, making it the $92,800 Panamera 4, a sportier but much pricier alternative to luxury AWD wagons like the BMW 535i xDrive Touring and the Audi A6 Avant wagons.
Porsche will also offer a manual six-speed transmission in this car, a feature extremely rare in performance luxury sedans bumping up to or past the $100,000 mark, but only in Europe, until North American buyers start clamouring for the true sports car experience. The vast majority of Panamera buyers – even in Europe – will opt for the seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission, and for good reason.
Compared to mid-size V-6 AWD luxury wagons, both the rear-drive "Panamera and AWD Panamera 4 also fare well", slotting near the top of this more fuel-conscious class as well.
From behind the wheel, the V-6 is the first Panamera that doesn’t assault the eyeballs when flooring the gas, and it’s hard not to miss that thrust if you’ve sampled any other Panamera.
