A handful of new variants are available for 2018, all of which deliver the performance and overall quality expected of the German sports car maker.

Back in 2010, the Porsche Panamera was a scandal. It was going to be a lumbering and heavy sedan, the very thought of which had purists in a tiffy . A 911 sedan! Two extra doors! All that weight! Seven years later, it’s fair to say the 2018 Porsche Panamera is really a four-door hatchback, with proper Porsche performance cred, body styles, trims, and options. For starters, the 2018 Panamera comes in three styles: sedan, a new wagon, and an extended-length executive sedan version. From there, shoppers can choose from five powertrain configurations: the 3.0-liter turbo V6 that makes 330 horsepower and 331 lb.-ft. of torque for the base and Panamera 4 trims; a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 (440 hp/405 lb.-ft.) in the 4S; and a hybrid version of the 2.9-liter that boosts total output to 462 hp/516 lb.-ft. Panamera Turbo models start with a V8 engine making 550 hp and 567 lb.-ft. of torque, then boost that output with a hybrid variant that makes 680 hp/626 lb.-ft.

As good as it’s proved as a daily driver, it was defeated by a trip to Center Parcs for a family half-term holiday. Not surprising really, as packing for the family, with two kids, bikes, scooters and more is a chore even in a sizeable estate - a Skoda Octavia Estate stepping into the role very adequately indeed.

They’re snug back there, … [Read more...] about Porsche 911 Carrera – long-term test: is a 911 really the best all-rounder?
