2023 Porsche Panamera




The Porsche Panamera range is broad, with loads of options for those who are seeking a sports car that’s a little out of the ordinary. Buyers in the USA can choose from the standard four-seater with a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 that makes 325 horsepower or sportier ‘S’-monikered models that use a higher-output version of the power plant to make 443 hp. There’s a 473-hp GTS model with a V8 topping the range for those who believe Porsches should be seen and heard. But don’t be fooled into thinking this is a family sedan; sure, there are four seats in total, but space in the back is still a little restricted and the Porsche Panamera’s competitors like the Audi RS7 and BMW M5 may be more practical if you want to carry passengers comfortably. But the Porsche excels at what it was designed for – driving pleasure. There’s grip for days (all-wheel drive variants specifically) and incredible handling that makes it a real pleasure to drive.

2023 Porsche Panamera Changes: What’s The Difference vs The 2022 Panamera?

Not much changes for the new Porsche Panamera sedan, but adaptive cruise control with automatic emergency braking becomes a standard feature, and the electric steering column that was bundled with the optional 14-/18-way power-adjustable seats is no longer included in the power-seat packages. Instead, the adjustment is now manual on the base, 4, and 4S cars and powered from the GTS and up. The infotainment system is updated, its most important new feature being that Android Auto is now wireless. Otherwise, the 2023 Porsche Panamera lineup continues as is.
