The term “four door Porsche Sedan” feels foreign when you say it out loud, but when you see a Panamera up close it’s not at all. With sunglasses, a camera bag and a good pair of kicks I can pretty much see anything a beach town offers. And while I was in Vero Beach Florida earlier this year I discovered a black Porsche Panamera parked behind an old motel.
I’m not exactly sure who owns it but I had to examine the angles on this gorgeous Porsche and get a closer look. As I walked around I could see the leather Panamera interior glistening through the glass, it was 3pm the magic hour for photography so I managed to get a full cross section of this fine four door Porsche sedan under good light.
It seems every time I take photos of a Porsche someone is watching me, in this case it was a girl standing just outside of the motel room service door smoking a cigarette staring blankly, I waved hello and continued to snap shots. She just lifted her hand for another haul.
As I got around to the rear I could see the the dynamic rear wing was up. It’s not entirely clear why, but from everything I’ve read these typically deploy at 127mph which would mean this one might be stuck, adding the bad-ass Porsche look no less.
The Panamera interior is roomy, and with cushy leather it’s opulent and spacious if you’re sitting inside. Add to that the experience of barreling down the road doing 140mph in the lap of luxury. At 100k the Panamera 4S is worth the price of admission.
A four door Porsche sedan isn’t a term I would throw around loosely however with this car, Porsche took ownership of the category.
