Ride of the Week: Porsche’s Redesigned Panamera Is the Fastest Luxury Sedan on Earth


Porsche fans it’s finally here. After a prolonged wait the German automaker finally unveiled the 2017 Panamera at the ongoing Paris Motor Show, and judging by the first official images the redesigned model definitely packs more punch than its predecessor. The four-door beauty has been upgraded in both the exterior and performance department, boasting a more dynamic body constructed entirely from aluminum, while the new engine powers the second-generation design from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds before maxing out at 180 mph. Those looking for a little more performance-wise, the Turbo package offers 3.6 second acceleration and a top speed of 190 mph. Similarities between this redesign and the 911 are uncanny, starting with the updated LED lights and the interconnected taillights, which sit just below the retractable spoiler. The 2017 Porsche Panamera will be hitting dealers in January of next year with a starting price tag of $101,040 USD.
