2015 Porsche Panamera Overview

Is the 2015 Porsche Panamera a Good Used Car?

Aside from its poor rearward visibility, the 2015 Porsche Panamera is a near faultless sports car. It offers a rousing performance unmatched by most competitors, thanks to its range of five potent engines and track-ready agility. It also has a top-notch projected reliability rating and a luxurious, comfortable cabin packed with high-tech features.

Used 2015 Porsche Panamera Performance and Interior

The rear-wheel-drive 2015 Porsche Panamera is powered by a potent 310-horsepower V6 engine that provides instant, rapid acceleration off the line. Though most won't need it, the Panamera is available with much more power in its available engines. The Panamera S has a 420-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V6; the Panamera GTS comes with a 440-horsepower V8; the Panamera Turbo has a 520-horsepower V8; and the top-of-the line Panamera Turbo S has a potent 570-horsepower, twin-turbo V8. According to Porsche, the Turbo S can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 192 mph. A smooth-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission comes standard. The Panamera gets 18 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which is typical for a super luxury car. A Panamera S E-Hybrid plug-in model is also available. With its electric motor and supercharged V6 engine, it produces 416 horsepower, earns 50 mpg-equivalent combined city/highway, and has a 15-mile all-electric range.

Few cars provide as much behind-the-wheel exhilaration as the Porsche Panamera. It's incredibly nimble on winding roads, offering razor-sharp steering and little body roll. Road grip is exceptional, and its brakes provide good stopping power.

The four-seat Porsche Panamera’s excellent build quality and luxurious materials make it a pleasant place to be. Still, its vast number of dashboard controls can be initially overwhelming. The front seats are roomy and comfortable. The back seats provide plenty of headroom and legroom, but the sloped roofline makes for poor rearward visibility. Some Panamera Executive models come with a rear center console that reduces rear legroom. With the back seats folded, the Panamera has 44.6 cubic feet of cargo space, which is excellent for the class.

Standard features in the 2015 Porsche Panamera include the Porsche Communication Management infotainment system, a 7-inch touch screen, navigation, USB and auxiliary audio inputs, and Bluetooth.

Should I Consider Another Used Panamera?

The 2015 Porsche Panamera is a part of the car's first generation, which launched with the 2010 model year. For 2015, Porsche launched the Panamera S E-Hybrid model. Porsche also introduced a new engine for the Panamera S and 4S models – a 420-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V6. You should also consider a 2014 Panamera; it may save you some money, while providing almost every feature of the 2015 model.

Which Used Porsche Panamera Is Right for Me?

The Porsche Panamera is available in six trims: Panamera, Panamera S, Panamera S E-Hybrid, Panamera GTS, Panamera Turbo, and Panamera Turbo S. Unless you spend lots of time on the track, you should be pleased with the base Panamera. It comes well-equipped with a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, and the Porsche Communication Management infotainment system, which includes a 7-inch touch screen, navigation, an 11-speaker audio system, USB and auxiliary audio inputs, and Bluetooth. The Panamera S adds bi-xenon headlights, active suspension management, and a stronger engine. The Panamera S E-Hybrid adds an adaptive air suspension. The Panamera GTS has standard all-wheel drive, 18-way adaptive sport seats with memory, a sport exhaust, and Alcantara upholstery. The Panamera Turbo includes keyless entry, 14-way power memory seats, front and rear heated seats, and Bose surround sound. The performance-topping Panamera Turbo S has a limited slip rear differential. 

For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Porsche extends the original new-car warranty to six years or 100,000 miles. If the CPO vehicle is past its original new-car warranty term (four years/50,000 miles), Porsche will cover the CPO vehicle for two years or 50,000 miles – though Porsche places total mileage limits on this warranty. Each CPO Porsche must pass a 111-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Porsche warranty page carefully.

2015 Porsche Panamera and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Porsche Panamera or 2015 Lexus LS?

The Lexus LS is the only competing car that matches the Panamera's reliability rating. However, these cars are worlds apart when it comes to performance. The LS' dull handling makes it the better car for comfortable daily cruising, while the Panamera is designed for fast and fierce driving. 

Which Is Better: 2015 Porsche Panamera or 2015 Jaguar XJ?

The Jaguar XJ is about the only other car in the class that prioritizes agility over ride comfort – though it’s still not as agile as the Panamera. Nonetheless, it is fairly athletic and has a slightly stronger base engine. The XJ’s cons include its poor cabin build quality, tight back-seat space, and outdated infotainment system.
