We road tested over 70 cars this year, but the Porsche Panamera came out on top.
We tested two versions: the Turbo and the 4S. The Turbo has a more powerful V8 engine. According to Porsche, the 4S can go from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds. Top speed: 179 mph. Its V6 engine has 440-horsepower. The Panamera starts at $85,000. It can be as much as $150,000 with added options.
There's an excellent infotainment system available with optional wireless data. Comfortably seats 4 passengers. Plenty of trunk space. An infrared "Night View" camera. Double panoramic sunroof. BOSE surround sound system. The body is back to the traditional Porsche design.
