Home / Reviews / Drive Report: 2013 Porsche Panamera GTS



Man, those Motoramic lads have got it made. Not only do they get to post their words on yahoo, but they are also given access to beautifully-honed sets of wheels such as the 2013 Porsche Panamera GTS, which is just the vehicle that one Motoramician recently took for a test drive.

Before even getting into the thing, the fortunate driver declared that the Panamera GT was “absurd” in its size, weight, color and price. Considering that the sedan is 16 feet long and six feet wide, tips the scales at somewhere around 5,500 pounds, and costs about $139,000, absurd just might be an understatement. The correct description is “absurdly absurd.”

The test ride was used to run errands to purchase squat jars of Grey Poupon and to cruise the blacktop highways of the grassy hills north of the San Francisco Bay. The tester reported that the Carmine Red car provided both a luxurious ride and a fast, fun one being able to zip, to zag and to carve its way up those undulating hills as all Porsches must be able to do.
