Call it a blessing or call it blashpemy, Porsche's four-door Panamera is here to stay. And despite an odd angle here and there, it has a certain charm about it. If you're a believer, or even if you're in doubt, Porsche has launched a new Panamera Configurator that lets you see what you can do to improve on its basic design.

The example above - a well-outfitted $143,110 example of the Porsche Panamera Turbo - shows that there's a lot of flexibility in the online design tool. There are some limitations as well, however.

It will give you a photo of the car you've built updated with the trim level, exterior color, wheel option and interior choice, but smaller adjustments - such as painted intakes, diffusers or rear apron - aren't included, leaving your imagination to fill in the details.

In total, however, the tool is a handy way to explore the options the Panamera offers, all the way from the $89,800 base S model to the $93,800 4S and on to the $132,600 Turbo. Options can quickly boost those prices, however, with a full slate of options bumping the base model up to $150,000 and beyond. How much for a fully-optioned Turbo? Open up that wallet, because it will run you right up against the $200,000 mark.

A wide range of options are available inside and out, including a choice of birch, mahogany, aluminum and carbon fiber interior elements, a range of custom and premium paint colors, four sets of wheels and more audio equipment than you could shake a 300-CD case at.

  1. porsche is gona make big money if this sells off like the cayenne

  2. shameless marketing ploy... gullible customers apply now.

  3. Two weeks ago I got an invite to go to my local dealer and spec out a Panamera. I now know it was a dry run for what is available on their website.

    The interesting part was the level of enthusiasm the sales force had. I could'nt tell if it was genuine as they feel the car is a sure fire winner or nervous that they may have a bad egg on their hands, just an observation on my part.

  4. This is an example of a car which solely relies on the brand image to justify it's existence. It's a disaster of a car and will leave a scar in Porsche's history.

  5. A neat option I found was the Sport Exhaust System.
    "Features modified main silencers and specially designed sports tailpipes. The "sport sound" is activated via an additional switch in the center console."
