Early Porsche Panamera models are becoming bargains. Today I'm reviewing this 2012 Panamera to show you that you can get a lot of car for under $30,000 -- and I'm going to take you on a tour of this Panamera, and then drive it to reveal one of the best Porsche bargains on the market.

Sorry, but suggesting the change from an interior full of neat physical switches to one with a glossy black touch panel that looks a scruffy fingerprinted mess as soon as you use it is in some sense "evolution" is beyond strange.

Why are most Americans, including you, unable to pronounce the name PORSCHE correctly? It either sounds like Porsha or just Porsh. A German, Ferdinand Porsche, built this car and his name has a clear 'e' at the end, which is pronounced like the E in Echo. Just say Porschecho, but leave the 'cho' away. Ferdinand's toenails curl up every time his name is mutilated and he's tired of it!

When I first drove a Porsche, it was a 911.I did not like it at all. I felt like I am in a box, I did not knew where the edges was, and I did not like the whole perception of the car. Is that comfy? Yepp. Well made? Yepp. Fast? Maybe, but on normal roads, it gave me just nothing. Not my peace of cake. Then came the cayman and the boxster. Wow, so this is what Porsche is! It always gave me that smile, you know, it gave you that fun mood, where you respect the traffic rules, but everytime I change gears, steer, or... anything I do is just giving me a smile. Next one was the Cayenne and Macan. Oh god. After every other car in that class, I just found absolutley nothing to argue with. It is the surprise, the recognition of "so it can be good hah". I would choose Porsche over anything else. Nothing comes to my mind what I would tweak with. Good seats, logical controls, everything is within arms reach, and what you need is there. It is like walking, and if you start stretching the boundaries, then comes the wow. What it is capable of, is not what you would like to achieve. It is a car what does what you want. Always predictable, even beyond the limit. Porsches support you. Lastly, the panamera. That is my dreamcar, a panamera for the weekdays, and a cayman for the weekends. Porsche (except the 911) made what all the car should be. Well made, but in every single detail, to a very high standard. Yes you could find hundreds of horsepowers with any other brand, good saloons and suvs and sporty ones, but as a whole car, everything component every detail is made to that high standard, and finetuned to make it a package which works together like it should be.

One year ago, I have bought 2014 Panamera, with 50k miles on it, for 36k$, and so far, I haven't had a single problem whatsoever. The level of comfort and luxury you get, cannot be compared with most of the cars that old, in that money range. My opinion is that this one is underestimated due high cost of maintenance and repairs, but , lets face it, every German car is like that. On the other hand, they don't break down often, and my mechanic told me that like a month before I got it, its a quality built .

Buying a new Porsche is one of the worst, literally stupid, investments you can make. Buying a 20 yr old Porsche, on the other hand, is a great investment if you can afford to keep it running.

@ Doug DeMuro - You seem to have some kind of situation with old (elderly) people... Well KID, I'll tell you what, if you live long enough, you'll find yourself with that condition some day. And according to you, you too will have the "questionable" taste in cars when that happens. Generally we don't drive little rice burners with rediculous looking wings wobbling on our trunk lids like some kind of bobble head hula girl having a siezure.

I just bought a 2013 4s. It's much better equipped than your example, has a 400hp V8, nearly new tires, an extensive service history, and in spite of what you say, I think the styling is very good. Certainly it's better looking than ANY of the comparable 4dr sport/luxury sedans. I paid $24,000 out the door. I'd guess you would give my car at least a 75, rather than a score of 60. I was gassing up on the way home from the dealer and the lady on the opposite pump asked, "What kind of car is that". "A Porsche", I replied. She smiled and said "No wonder I like it so much. Those guys really know how to do it". I grinned.

The Panamera, like a used MB S550, is an excellent value and a wonderful car. Potential buyers should be aware of two drawbacks, however. First it drives well in all respects but it is not a 911. It does not have the 911‘s uncanny ability to read your mind and transmit that to the road. Secondly, any Porsche is very expensive to repair. Even routine maintenance will frighten normal car buyers.

Unfortunately, the average American does not have the kind of money that you and Hoovie have. This car makes no sense for anybody that doesn't have a surplus of disposable income. Just taking it in to the dealer for routine service is going to warrant you taking a second mortgage on your house.

Great review. The Panamera was first displayed at the Shanghai Auto Show in 2009! I am fortunate enough to own the last year of a Gen 1: a 2016 Panamera S e-hybrid with hard buttons that provide instant feedback, unlike the 2017+ NextGen 2 touch screen versions which have seen a slight increase in front end collisions. Overall, an incredible vehicle that enables one to own green plates, utilise HOV lanes, save fuel, drive quietly, handle incredibly, while owning Porsche's only supercharged engine vehicle, with superb styling and turn heads!

The interior appeals to boomers. So if you want to surprise grandma with a Porsche, here you are. Other wise the interior cosmetics will need to be redone. The body styling looks good to me sense I am a form follows function type of guy. Doug forgot that back in the day Saab was a thing. People bough Saab and that had similar liens to the Panamera. Saab never looked good to me, but the Panamera looks good.
