Five-Point Inspection: 2014 Porsche Panamera 4S

Five-Point Inspection: 2014 Porsche Panamera 4S

5. Style

There’s a certain grace and masculinity to Porsche’s current designs that the rest of Germany’s auto industry lacks. Be it Mercedes-Benz, BMW or Porsche’s Audi cousin, none really compare.

Maybe it’s because you can tinker with the options list to a near-maddening degree. There are 14 kinds of wheels 15 selectable colors aside from the choice for custom paint, three kinds of seats with a dizzying list of material choices. The list goes on and on if you want it to.

It’s all expensive, but it makes for an especially enjoyable all-season compromise to a sports car; sort of like Reese’s Puffs. Just kidding, I couldn’t possibly think of a way to relate guilty pleasure junk food to a high-powered hatchback that costs almost $115,000.
