Porsche Panamera is the Best New Car of this Year

Panamera, the newest model on the Porsche area, has begun already to collect awards from different organizations, rushing onto the all-mighty market. The latest addition of Panamera is this: the Best New Car of the Year - Luxury Performance Class, fifty man jury said so.

Porsche stated for the press 'Porsche’s Gran Turismo convinced the 50-man jury made up of racing drivers, engineers, celebrities and the senior editors of the Auto Bild Magazine Group trying out the candidates on thorough test drives'.

'Before receiving this outstanding award, the Panamera had already been chosen by readers as one of the five best models in the luxury performance class with experts putting the car through its paces in the final contest on a test track in Italy for two enduring days'.

So, the jury that recognized Panamera as being the Golden Steering Wheel one in class was composed of celebrities, engineers, racing drivers and Auto Bild Magazine Group's editors.

The Panamera entered the market on 12th of September, powered by a V8 4.8l engine that makes either 4S (400 horsepower) or (Turbo) 500 horsepower). Panamera - the regular one, is accelerating from zero to 60 in just 5.2 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 175 mph (meaning 280 km/hour); Panamera Turbo - the all-wheel drive, hits the exact same speed in only 4 seconds, 188 mph (302 km/hour).

The vehicle can reach the price of 200,000 Euro. The options list available is quite big.
