The Top Gear car review:Porsche Panamera

Overall verdict
Better looks clothe more tech than we could ever explain. Still the driver's lux choice.


Luxury cars get little nicer inside, nor as accomplished to drive


Pricey: too much optional should be standard


What is it?

The all-new, second-generation Porsche Panamera. Yep, really. All of its parts are new, even if it does just look like a facelift. Albeit a very successful one: the Panamera has finally grown into its skin, and wears its 911 styling cues better than ever. You may disagree, but we think it looks pretty darn good.
