First Look: 2010 Porsche Panamera's Interior

09PP1 It’s been a couple months since we got our first glimpse of Porsche’s all-new four-door Panamera GT. Today, we finally get a peek at the interior and also find out more about powertrains, trim levels and pricing.

The Panamera will comfortably seat four. There’s a wide center console spanning the cockpit that also bisects the rear seats, providing storage and air for the rear passengers.

Practicality makes a rare appearance at Porsche, as the Panamera can carry a group and their cargo at the same time. The trunk has 15.7 cubic feet of cargo space, which is more than a comparatively sized BMW 5 Series and about equal with a Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The rear seats also fold down.

Porsche continues to make its owners feel as unique as their six-figure salaries by offering a diverse range of luxury appointments.

The Panamera comes in four leather colors and seven interior trim options, including real carbon fiber and olive wood. Other premium features include an optional 16-speaker, 1,000-plus-watt audio system, and 18-way adaptive sport seats with individual controls for the side bolsters, seat surface and backrest.

Besides the interior, the automaker also spilled the beans on specifications and body styles. The Panamera GT will be available in three body styles: the base rear-wheel-drive S, the all-wheel-drive S4 and the top-of-the-line all-wheel-drive Turbo. Initially, all Panameras will come with V-8 engines.

The S and S4 come equipped with a 400-hp, 4.8-liter V-8. The Turbo also gets a V-8, but it’s twin-turbocharged. The 500-hp Turbo can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4 seconds flat.

The Panamera will go on sale in the U.S. on Oct. 17. When it does, price of entry for a base S will be $89,800. The S4 will be $93,800 and the Turbo comes in at $132,600.

It's a disappointment that Porsche can't come up with something more original than copying the 1966 Dodge Charger's console that stretched from the front to the back seats. Actually the 66 Charger has a much nicer interior. This is more overpriced junk from the master of giving you less for more money.

ya'know, I'm with red here.
Porsche should stick to the coupes and leave the SUV/wagons to the companies that kow hoe to do it.
And, those rear screens look like cheap aftermarket add-ons - they couldn't integrate it any better?
The seate actually remind me of the first generation Escort wagons from the early 80's - anyone besides me remember those POS's?
The Ford Flex is actually much nicer inside than this.

I disagree, except for the cheap looking horribly (not?)intergrated screens, this interior is very nice. I think the materials used will overcome any complaints about ergonomics- and I can see that there are more than a few ergonomic issues here. This interior looks like it smeels awesome, like a new leather shoe or something, lol.

Too bad its butt ugly on the outside. :(

I think it has to be experienced in order to come up with a justified opinion, but I can see the goods and the not so goods already, which I reserve to expound the more critical comments for lack of better ways to express my ambivalence. I will however, admit that the interior is not what I expected and the Panamera was definately an opportunity for Porsche to come up with something entirely exclusive, but they failed to do so. It is exclusive in that it offers a variety of interior combinations but a variety for a very unexclusive interior design.

i love the interior and the center console looks to be very ergonomic and easy to use

Why what? Why is Porsche making an ugly as crap hatchback? Or just a hatchback period?
