Porsche builds sports cars-but with the Cayenne SUV, the German automaker put the world on notice that it had more in mind. Now with the 2010 Panamera sedan, Porsche fills out its lineup with a truly spacious four-door that makes few compromises in its search for buyers seeking shattering power, great handling, and real room for four adults. It's no four-door coupe, like the Aston Martin Rapide or the Mercedes-Benz CLS, but a true "gran turismo." On sale in October 2009, the 2010 Panamera starts from a base price of $90,750 for the rear-drive Panamera S sedan, moving up to $94,750 for the all-wheel-drive Panamera 4S, and to $133,550 for the turbocharged, all-wheel-drive Panamera Turbo.
Porsche before it, the Panamera aims for a traditional sedan silhouette, for better and for worse. As the unconfirmed story goes, former Porsche CEO Wendelin Wiedeking mandated the Panamera would have room in the backseat for his 6' 3" frame. It does-but the resulting roofline takes a compelling shape and knocks it off balance. The usual Porsche front and rear fenders frame the shape and help create a low drag coefficient, and rounded headlamps and tapered tail lamps render traditional details handsomely. The front end is low-but the rear roofline isn't, which makes the Panamera seem out of proportion, even in darker tones. As with the Bugatti Veyron, the rear end has a fastback feel that may take a few years to grow familiar. It's simply not as sleek as a Benz CLS or even four-doors like the new Jaguar XJ, and the proportions play much better on the Maserati Quattroporte.

Only two pairs of each of the five designs will be created, one for the winning bidder and one for the man behind the design, JAY-Z.

After overwhelming responses during its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and Auto China in Beijing, the Supervisory Board of Porsche AG gave the “go ahead” yesterday to the mid-engined hybrid plug-in super car. Originally, just a case study on a perfect balance of traditional combustion engine and electric powered, the 918 Spyder’s 500-hp V8 engine works in tandem with 3 electric motors at a total output of 160 kW. This translates to a fuel consumption of 94 miles per gallon (mpg) and a CO2 emission of 70 grams per kilometer, or in layman’s term, an exotic car with CO2 footprint of a compact plug-in hybrid.
Development will start in in Weissach, Germany with production facility at Zuffenhausen, Germany. Details to come later this year on launch dates, product information, units availability and price range.---freshnessmag
This looks very nice!!!
