I think the Porsche Panamera has a problem. No, not a mechanical one, but rather an image problem. The thing with Porsches is that they’ve always been inspirational cars. Something you desire and work towards. Even if it wasn’t a 911, cool people still drove 944s and 928s. Even the 914 was a fun little sports car that certainly wasn’t fast but had a ton of style and uniqueness about them. But with the Panamera, that isn’t true. No kid has a poster of a Panamera on their wall. Nobody goes to the Porsche dealership to see a new Panamera. It exists to compete in a class with other mid-size sedans and hopefully steal sales from people who traditionally bought an E-Class or 5 Series every three years. That is fine, but it surely isn’t in the same league as all the other Porsche cars when it comes to collectability and long-term ownership. So what happens to them?

Truth be told, the Panamera even in base form is a really nice car. Porsche clearly doesn’t treat them like a stepchild and it punches well within its class and beyond. However, it is completely overlooked once it ages. No one is nostalgic for a 2011 Panamera. Yes, they still sell for fairly good money, but no one is ever buying one to be their “special” car in their life. Is that a problem for Porsche? Probably not. They know the game and know what happens to these. They’ll languish on the lots with the rest of the well-used luxury cars to be passed around to its 8th owner with hopes the PDK gearbox holds up.
As you can see with this 2018 up for sale in Tennesee, it is a really nice sedan. The tech is great, the design is clean, and the performance is certainly within reason. Am I spending $62,000 on it? No way. I’m surely not alone here in thinking that if you have this kind of money, you aren’t buying a base six-year-old Panamera. See my point?
