Lifestyle: After testing more than 70 cars, this Porsche is our 2017 car of the year
We road tested over 70 cars this year, but the Porsche Panamera came out on top.
We tested two versions: the Turbo and the 4S. The Turbo has a more powerful V8 engine. According to Porsche, the 4S can go from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds. Top speed: 179 mph. Its V6 engine has 440-horsepower. The Panamera starts at $85,000. It can be as much as $150,000 with added options.
There's an excellent infotainment system available with optional wireless data. Comfortably seats 4 passengers. Plenty of trunk space. An infrared "Night View" camera. Double panoramic sunroof. BOSE surround sound system. The body is back to the traditional Porsche design.
