  • All Panamera are good, only the facelift successors always, I don't know what that is about, and the headlights are getting uglier and uglier.

  • Sorry Doug but saying that panamera is the first to have a sloppy back and it started a trend you got to be stupid. Wake up Doug the mercedes cls problably designed it in 1995 and made it in 2004 the best coupe sedan in the world the first w219 the best or nothing.

  • The bargain you say is nothing of the sort. This is a old gas guzzler with decade old tech. It will cost a huge sum to service and maintain. The price of the sticker merely reflects its drawbacks. I'd rather have newer up to date vehicle than pay for a badge.

  • There is no question about the excellent quality of Porsche engineering, however, the Panamera suffers from the kind of exterior ugliness that only a mother can love. Given all other options out there it is sad to know that someone will actually pass a cheaply priced Porsche Panamera even if the price is further lowered.

  • One other important reason, the original Panamera is as ugly as hell. As for practicality, the load volume is large but the aperture to get into is is ridiculously small. This a trade off that was forced upon them by the styling and a brief to have large rear seating area. That thing didn't start the sloped back at all.

  • So question about the "cost of ownership" comment you made toward the end. I've always been drawn to the styling of the panamera and with the dwindling value of them, started checking the used selection locally. But then a local mechanic told me an oil change on one of these is $400+. Is that true? Just curious because that is pretty significant if we're talking cost of ownership
