2016 Porsche Panamera Walk Around

The bold Panamera looks inspire strong responses, pro and con. From head-on, it looks like a Porsche 911,with big intakes, domed hood and crisp details; but from the rear it looks big and bulbous.

It has a long roofline that binds an unsettling configuration of curves and drops toward the tail in a bubbled arch. It creates great room for the passengers in the rear seat, which is what the car is all about, but gives up elegance in the styling. The rear end is simple and clean, but the large roof and glass make it suffer.

Interior

There’s less debate in the cabin, which is stylish and high tech. With straight lines and flat surfaces, it’s not warm and organic like some luxury cars. It also uses real buttons and switchgear, not touchscreen menus like some luxury cars. The fit and finish is excellent, and materials of a high quality, although it isn’t as quiet in the cabin as a luxury sedan.

In the back, with ample room and features, it does feel like an executive limo, especially the Executive model with long rear doors. Behind the seats, under the glass hatch, there’s a ton of room; Porsche says two bicycles will fit back there.
