Porsche Releases 2010 Panamera Fuel Economy Numbers

ATLANTA Porsche has released what it says are official EPA numbers on its 2010 Panamera, which goes on sale October 17. The EPA has yet to post the official numbers on its Web site, however.

Porsche says official EPA numbers on the base 400-horsepower Panamera S and Panamera 4S are 16 miles per gallon in city driving and 24 mpg on the highway. It says the 500-hp Panamera Turbo model will deliver 15 mpg in city driving and 23 mpg on the highway.

"All models are not subject to the gas guzzler tax," noted Porsche Cars North America spokesman Gary Fong in an e-mailed message to Inside Line on Wednesday.

The Panamera models feature an automatically shifting double-clutch transmission that conserves fuel and cuts emissions by turning the engine off when it is not needed, such as when it's sitting at a stoplight.

The numbers for the Panamera look impressive against the EPA numbers for one of its main competitors, the 2009 Maserati Quattroporte, another high-end four-door vehicle. The EPA says the Quattroporte returns 12 mpg in city driving and 18 mpg on the highway.

According to October MOTOR, the Pan-T drinks it like you wouldn't believe when you drive it hard.

Surprisingly, Georg Kacher preferred the AMG S63 in a comparison too.
