2022 Porsche Panamera vs. Its Competition

2022 Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Platinum Edition
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Truthfully, the Panamera is without a direct rival.

The Audi A7 is svelte and fun, and it’s a lot cheaper if you’re on something of a budget.

BMW’s 8-Series Gran Coupe comes closest in terms of sloped-roof style and performance options.

For all-out opulence and sophistication, the recently redesigned Mercedes-Benz S-Class should be at the top of your shopping list.

The Tesla Model S is really more of a rival for the Taycan electric car, but we see plenty of reasons to cross-shop it with the Panamera as well.

For the same reason, we’d also put the Lucid Air on the same shopping list.
