2012 Porsche Panamera Features

8.0
Features
Despite the luxurious feel of the rear seat in the Panamera, it gives up some high-end technological features to the true executive limos from BMW and Mercedes-Benz; things like night vision and accident-avoidance systems. That said, the Panamera has nearly every other option you could imagine or request, on top of its standard equipment package.

Available equipment includes cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seating, a panoramic sunroof, Bluetooth, and navigation with customizable maps.

Options for trim and appearance include gloss and matte wood, carbon fiber, aluminum, piano-black trim; various wheels; custom paint configurations; and a wide range of upholstery colors and materials.

While not as high-tech as some of its alternatives, the 2012 Porsche Panamera does offer a long list of features and equipment.

But that's not all--the Panamera offers a lot of additional electronic and other equipment, too, including: adaptive cruise control, heated and ventilated seats, a Burmester or Bose upgraded audio system (we prefer the Burmester), adaptive sport seats, four-zone climate control, and front and rear park assist. And that's not even the full list.

On top of the individual features, there are equipment packages, including the performance-focused Sport Chrono package, which adds a special dash-mounted timer/gauge to track cornering, lap times, and more, plus more control over the variable dynamic systems.

The one thing you'll need to beware of as you tick the boxes building your dream Panamera is the effect these options have on the bottom line. Tick too many and you can rapidly ratchet the Panamera's price well above $200,000 in the case of the Turbo S.
