Despite its tonnage, the Panamera GTS is still the best-handling, most accessible huge sedan out there. And it has a wonderful, architectural-quality interior. Is it a modern-day Gatsby’s car? It could be.

With a hatchback lends more versatility than the average full-size luxury sedan, and you could a merely adequate driving experience. Thankfully, the Panamera exceeds expectations in this regard, even when equipped with the base, V-6 engine.

Equipped with Porsche’s new 3.6-liter V6, the Panamera and Panamera 4 offer the same looks, comfort, handling and braking as their V8 counterparts, but with better fuel economy and a lower price of entry.

True, it won’t win any beauty contests, but the Porsche Panamera truly does deliver the best of both worlds, sports car and sedan all in one.

The Porsche Panamera can carry four adults in supreme comfort and qualifies as a no-compromise luxury sedan. All Panameras perform well on the street and the track. We think it’s one of the world’s best luxury sports sedans.

The V-6 Panamera is essentially the same car as the S and it, too, is a joy to drive. You give up some raw speed but not much else. A truly great luxury car at a bargain (for Porsche) price

Porsche is aiming for the sporty side of the luxury-car market, and Panamera hits the mark. This 4-door hatchback also scores points for its cargo versatility and passenger room and comfort.

Consider the 2011 Porsche Panamera and Panamera 4 very competent 300 horsepower sport sedans that just happen to be fitted with a thoroughly modern six-cylinder powerplant. The V6 has effectively priced Porsche’s first sedan back in the midst of its European competition.

The Porsche Panamera Turbo S is insanely fast and unexpectedly agile. In defiance of its length, wheelbase and mass, this sedan is also implausibly athletic.

The Panamera 4 is the sleeper in Porsche’s four-door lineup. It doesn’t lose much in performance to the V-8–engined Panamera 4S, uses less gas, and has a base price that’s $15,800 lower.

It’s difficult to conceive of a $75,000 vehicle as a bargain — especially when the option list can raise the price to over $160,000 — but if any sedan qualifies, it might be the 2011 Porsche Panamera.
