Porsche Panamera- Just When We Thought It Couldn’t Get Any Worse…

By | February 16, 2010

Porsche goes ahead and adds a V6 model to the ill fated Panamera line. That’s right, the car that we defined as “redefining ugly” has taken a step in the wrong direction.

Porsche released news today that a direct injection V6 Panamera model will be coming in June and although direct injection technology is cool, it doesn’t quite fit in this portly Porsche.   Rumor has it they are hoping to target more buyers with a lower starting price of about $74,400.  The V6 puts out 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque so it isn’t exactly a weak motor but in a car that weighs roughly 3800 lbs it isn’t ideal.  Compare to it a similarly powered car, say the Evo X, and you have about the same horsepower but the Evo weighs about 300-400 lbs less (and cost about $40,000 less too).

So I guess for all of us richies looking to pose in mediocrity and have the performance to match, here is our car!
