Porsche broke with its sports car tradition when it launched the Cayenne 4x4 in 2003 and the Panamera marks another big step - it's the first ever four-seater saloon to be produced by the carmaker. At almost five metres long it offers luxuriously spacious travel, especially for those in the back, helped further by a refined ride.

Porsche broke with its sports car tradition when it launched the Cayenne 4x4 in 2003 and the Panamera marks another big step - it's the first ever four-seater saloon to be produced by the carmaker.

At almost five metres long it offers luxuriously spacious travel, especially for those in the back, helped further by a refined ride. The styling isn't to everyone's taste, but with its coupe appearance, it is undeniably a Porsche and actually looks more appealing up close. The good news is that it also handles like a Porsche with great steering, minimal body roll and stunning performance.

The majority of models come with a twin-clutch automatic gearbox called PDK which offers amazingly fast and smooth shifts while the Turbo S model boasts an immense 550bhp. For more, read the full Porsche Panamera review that follows.

 Where do I start! It's a sleek coupe shape but with 4 doors. Each seat is the same with loads of legroom. The boot is cavernous and the fuel economy astounding.
