    I always fancied a Porsche, four kids on and in my forties I thought my time of owning one had passed me by, I did not really fancy being that rather old portly dude climbing perilously out of a 911, then came along the panamera, I could tell everyone I have bought it so I can squeeze the kids in although with only four seats one kid and the wife are left behind which cannot in itself be a bad thing. The car handles just as one would expect it to, hugs the corners like a lovesick teenager, and although I bought the diesel as I use it as my everyday car and I do drive a lot it still delivers that poke when sticking ones foot down on the throttle, the seats are very comfortable, and the console layout is very concise, having driven mercs and bmws all my life, this German is just one goosestep ahead of its Bavarian brothers. I'd recommend it to anyone, even those suffering a midlife crisis like me but are still in denial.

    Not as fast as I'd like but then again i d also like it to fly, but is more than sufficient for a diesel

    The diesel is just fine, long runs on the motorway are hardly felt as the diesel frugally drinks

    Fabulous fabulous fabulous. I have owned and driven many cars, BMWs, Mercedes, Jaguars etc over the years but this car is special. It does everything. Looks great, it's nippy but not an all out racer, handles great, the boot is massive with the rear seats down, and it's ultra comfortable for four people no matter how big they are. It's economical and cheapish to insure, too. This is my first Porsche but certainly won't be my last – and that's if I ever change it. The main reason I love it is it puts a smile on my face every time I get in it. My wife likes it as well as she doesn't have to drive now!

    Amazing fuel consumption, being a diesel. Reasonable Insurance and 20,000-mile service intervals. Wow

    + Amazing range for the electric drive in the real world. More than enough power from the electric motor to drive in the opened road. Fitted and finished is above the level of the Mercedes S-class/BMW 7series/Audi A8. In comfort PASM setting even with 20" wheels the ride quality is exceptional. - The price of the options is too expensive. Rear visibility is not the best. Expensive running cost.
