Those of you wanting the Porsche Panamera 2+2 sports car can price one out online. We break down some of the options inside.
Those of you in the States wanting a Porsche Panamera now have the opportunity to build one on the manufacturer's website. Porsche is now allowing customers to configure their own Panamera S, Panamera 4S, or Panamera Turbo, in addition to viewing current and past issues of the "The Panamera Magazine" online.
The MSRP for the Panamera S begins at $89,800, but for $5,000 more you get the quicker 4S model. Those of you wanting the 500 hp Panamera Turbo have to shell out big: $132,600 gets you a 0-60mph time of 4.0 seconds, and a 188 mph top speed.
Since it's Porsche, options and add-ons are certainly not cheap. Want a color other than Carrara White or Black? That will set you back about $760, although five "special colors" are available for $3,140. You would think that getting the top-of-the-line Turbo would at least score you an included Metallic Color, but that is not the case. New wheels range from $1,500 for the Panamera Turbo wheels (standard on that trim line) to $3,200 for the RS Spyder 20-inchers, although Turbo buyers only need to pay $1,500+ for the RS wheels. Eight-way power seats with memory and some leather are standard on the base model. Upgrades start at $1,700 for 14-way seats in partial leather, to $6,865 for 18-way adaptive sport seats, with memory, full leather, and leather interior. Turbo buyers get the 14-way all leather seats and interior package included, and the step up to 18-way seats costs an added $1,500.
You'll also rack up thousands of dollars for performance options, like ceramic brakes, or Porsche Dynamic Chassis control with Rear Differential Lock. Convenience options, like rear power seats, and adaptive cruise control also runs in the thousands. Adding an extra light or two in the back costs about $600.
