The Porsche Panamera is a 4 door, front engined, rear wheeled drive car, which like the Cayenne, is a departure from the traditional line of cars produced by Porsche over the years. This may have upset the purists but the car has been designed to broaden the traditional customer base that Porsche have had over the years. We still cover the Panamera under our traditional Porsche insurance schemes rather than saloon car ones.
The Panamera has been placed in the market to compete with cars such as the Maserati Granturismo and Aston Martin Rapide, although Porsche would like to think it also takes on the BMW 7 series, Audi A8 and Mercedes S Class.
Porsche Panamera S
The original Panamera debuted in 2009 alongside the Turbo version. On offer were a 4.8 litre V8 engine which produced either 400 or 500bhp which was enough to make this car have a supercar feel. For those who have travelled in the Turbo version there is not much like it on the road! The V8 range now comprises the S, GTS, Turbo and Turbo S models. Each has its place in the range with power now up to 550bhp available. The Panamera sits very neatly between a large executive car and a sports coupe and has the power and handling plus the comfort one would expect from this upmarket prestige car.
The ‘base’ model of the series has been built around 3 different engine versions, namely the V6 petrol, V6 diesel and V6 Hybrid. Varying between 3.0 and 3.6 litres, these models have been aimed at the luxury car market headed by the likes of Mercedes and BMW and were introduced by Porsche in 2011. For such a large car, fuel consumption on these models (especially the diesel) are acceptable in this market sector, and we see the hybrid version as being one for the future.
Although a prestige car we regard the Panamera as part of our performance car insurance and will use these schemes to cover the car. Please do call and speak to one of our experts in order to discuss your requirements.

Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.
Honest guys. Very straight forward.
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
