On display at the 2009 LA Auto Show, the ground-breaking 2010 Porsche Panamera four-door hatchback sets the bar for power, luxury and something that Porsche coupes aren't known for--spaciousness.
At first glance, the Panamera doesn't seem too different with its traditional hood and Porsche-style headlamps, but because the Panamera carries its engine in the front, its curved rear-end hatchback is different than any other Porsche out there.
On the inside, the Panamera features a premium leather interior with four bucket seats that fold to accommodate 44.6 cubic feet of cargo space. The trunk alone boasts 15.7 cubic feet of volume, which can fit four suitcases.
The Panamera also features a "sport" button that allows you to select between a "comfort" or "sporty" performance settings while receiving 23-24 mpg in highway driving.
Available in three trim levels--S, all-wheel drive 4S and king of the road Turbo, the Panamera has something for everyone. The S and 4S boast a 400-horsepower, 4.8-liter V-8, while the Turbo features a throttling twin-turbo 500-horsepower V-8 that can rocket from 0 to 60 in a lightning-quick 4 seconds.
The 2010 Porsche Panamera blends the performance of a coupe with the space and comfort of an SUV, while retaining its unsurpassed unique style and luxury.
