2010 Porsche Panamera Spy Shots

porsche-panamera The Porsche Panamera is a subject of hot debate among Porsche enthusiasts / purists.  Many say that Porsche has no business producing a sedan – two door sports cars is the only market that Porsche should play in.  If anyone is reminded by the release of the Cayenne a few years back, you’ll know that this is nothing new.  Old-school Porsche guys don’t think the Cayenne should have been made ( and it sold incredibly well ), and they feel the same way about the Panamera.

porsche-panamera-side Regardless of what these guys want, Porsche is going to release the Panamera, though not until the 2010 model year.  Hopefully before then, they can iron out some design kinks.  From the front, the Panamera looks great – classic Porsche.  The problem is the rear / side views, where things just don’t work out.  I know that this is Porsche’s first sedan, but I have to ask what they were thinking.  Where the greenhouse meets the back end is a mess – not quite coupe, not quite sedan, not quite hatchback. It’s confused and needs to be cleared up. 

Design concerns aside, this car will be a beast.

2010 Porsche Panamera Specs

  • 400 HP 4.8 liter V8 mounted in front
  • 520 HP Turbo 4.8 liter V8 optional
  • AWD available
  • Top speed of 180 MPH

MMM I’ll take mine with the turbo please.  520 HP is hard to say no too, irregardless of any design concerns.  From the driver’s seat, you won’t care anyway.
