2016 Porsche Panamera – With the start of the new model year, Porsche releases its new Panamera car. This time it will be released using a weird name, as they have decided to call it Panamera Edition, but it is essentially the continuation of the car that bared the name Panamera before. The vehicle comes out as an updated version and will hit the market next year.
The Porsche Panamera was originally released in 2010, but was not welcomed in a good way by the fans of Porsche vehicles. It took a while for the fans to truly warm to this type of a car and it came after a few design years later. The car is now a renowned vehicle in the Porsche lineup and a welcomed one by any fan and the latest update will certainly dazzle them a bit more, particularly with its base MSRP which provides you with great value for your money.
According to every review out there and certainly according to ours, the Panamera is predicted to be a hot seller for the upcoming year. Great looks and a fashionable new design will attract additional people, while the performance is great as always. The fact that the car will more certainly make it is also provided by only a small increase to the price compared with setup you get with this vehicle.

The Porsche Panamera comes with a few design changes compared with the model from the previous year. They have kept the most of it but have decided to remodel it in a big way with some small additions that actually make a great difference for the car. It receives some high gloss black trim pieces that make a whole lot of difference this time. They add style to the car and make it even more exciting than it really is. The Turbo II trim will come with a standard option of adding 19-inch wheels and also the colored Porsche crest center caps. The lights have been enhanced with xenon technology and use the Porsche Dynamic Lighting System.
As an optional package for the 2016 model year, Porsche added the use of the Porsche Entry & Drive package, which adds body-colored door handles and make it a very interesting design options for some. Overall speaking, at first glance the car looks like every other Porsche which has been released after 2015, but the small details make this Panamera an interesting and distinguishable vehicle. Fans will certainly enjoy the update and they will love it even more this time.
The styling of the inside is a classic Porsche interior.
