Is there any sports car manufacturer that's remained truer to its heritage than Porsche? The brand has single-handedly built an 85-year legacy out of performance-minded engineering while designing some of the most endearing cars ever produced. And today, as one of the most respected automobile entities on the planet, they enjoy a tremendous following that's spawned a positively gigantic support system. Back in 1988, Dr. Ulrich Bez's 989 concept kick started the marque's foray in to more balanced offerings. But it wasn't until the advent of this Basalt Black stunner that the company got serious about following the market. Displaying only 9,055 original miles, this 2012 Panamera S wraps a high tech V8 and 7-speed PDK transmission in world class luxury. If you're looking for a cool modern car that's comfortable, sporty and virtually guaranteed to be exclusive, this low-mileage tourer is just your style!

BODYWORK/TRIM

By mixing an unconventional body with familiar traits and proven performance, the Panamera introduced Porsche to a whole new clientele, completing the brand's transition from hardcore sports cars to SUVs and sedans. Dressed in a classy coat of subdued Basalt Black 2-stage, there's no doubt this swoopy saloon puts a fresh twist on a traditional favorite. The car's pristine body has been meticulously pampered and protected since it rolled off Porsche's Leipzig, Germany assembly line. Its professionally finished surfaces are straight, solid and still possesses every bit of the drama and tension Harm Lagaay's original design inspired. Fit and finish are the typical, high quality stuff you'd expect from a flagship automaker. And today, only four years in to life, it rolls as one of the coolest cruisers on the planet!

ENGINE

With sports car performance in a Grand Touring package, this Panamera is definitely a way to have your cake and eat it too! Naturally, the car's visual testosterone is backed up with plenty of power from the engine room. In Generation I guise, this well-equipped S features a 4.8 liter V8 that twists an even 400 horsepower into 369 lb./ft. of torque. And thanks to the motor's careful tuning, that power comes on both strong and steady. Those stellar numbers add up to a jumbo-size land rocket which is capable of brisk five second 60 MPH sprints and a quarter-mile time of 13.9 seconds. The engine's substantial torque provides power throughout the RPM range, creating a very drivable car anywhere from open freeways to rush hour commutes. And, based on appearance, the silky mill has been meticulously maintained and carefully driven.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

As one of the automakers that pioneered nimble, rear-wheel-drive powertrains, Porsche has been generally praised for their exceptionally athletic platforms. Take one look under this svelte cruiser and you'll see just how much work went in to its Nurburgring-proven engineering. The car's independent front and multi-link rear suspension is augmented by adaptive air struts, extensive use of aluminum and the adoption of Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control and Porsche Active Suspension Management. Power flows from the smooth motor in to a 7-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe dual-clutch transmission - that's "PDK", for short. At the corners of the floor, giant, slotted rotors, which slide through beefy 4 and 6-piston calipers, ride behind 20-inch 911 Turbo II wheels and meaty Pirelli P Zero tires. And overall, the bottom of this basically new Porsche looks great!

INTERIOR

Inside this slick Panamera, it's all about a symbiotic relationship between cutting-edge European performance and traditional 'old world' luxury. At the center of the car, heated and leather-lined seats, which are trimmed in attractive aluminum, show hardly any signs of wear. Between those seats, a stylized center stack frames a high end sound system that's complete with both Bluetooth and Navigation. At the base of that stack, like-new carpet, which is protected by thick, "PORSCHE" branded floor mats, anchors a full-length console and aluminum-trimmed shifter between attractive "Panamera S" sills. Above those sills, tight-fitting door panels cap rich wood trim with aluminum handles. In front of the driver, a handsome, leather-trimmed steering wheel spins aluminum spokes and small paddle shifters around a colorful crest. And throughout this inviting cockpit you'll find the usual assortment of luxury and convenience features we've all come to expect in high end automobiles.

OUR SALE INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTATION

A full array of factory books and manuals

Highly civilized and extremely potent, this clean Panamera is a no-compromises exercise in world class touring. Still luxurious where it matters, with serious performance underneath, it offers virtually limitless fun without degrading ride quality or driver comfort. If you're looking for a modern rig that's plush, reliable and guaranteed to be exclusive, this silky Porsche is the car for you!
