There are currently fourteen varieties of the Panamera available on Porsche’s menu. One of these, the Panamera S E-Hybrid, is different enough from the others to warrant separate consideration and its own post. One other, the Panamera Exclusive Series, was limited to a run of 100 individual cars which sold out 48 hours after being made available. No, we don’t know why it’s still listed either.
This leaves us with twelve distinct cars that answer to the Panamera name. They vary by engine type, number of driven wheels, and even body length; the Executive cars are stretched by 5.9 inches to open up even more room for the already-spacious rear seats, which are also now power-adjusted.
Various other equipment upgrades and trim changes are naturally included within this progression. Regardless of powerplant or driveline, all Panameras use Porsche’s excellent 7-speed PDK semi-automatic transmission and contain an extensive amount of high-quality standard equipment including navigation and satellite radio.
