Serving North Olmsted, Strongsville, & Cleveland, OH
If you want proof that the market for excellent sport sedans remains strong, check out the 2018 Porsche Panamera and the BMW M5. Both offer power, prestige, performance and good looks. We suggest you test-drive both. Once you do, we’re confident you’ll prefer the Porsche due to its superior power and handling.
Panamera engines are available in three gasoline and two hybrid versions. The top engine is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 coupled to an electric motor, making 680 horsepower and 626 lb-ft of torque. It pairs to a PDK dual-clutch 8-speed automatic transmission that drives the rear wheels or all four. The BMW M5 offers a single engine, a 4.4-liter turbo V8 turning out 600 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The BMW M5 is smaller than the Panamera, with a less inviting interior. The Porsche is longer (204.7 vs 195.5 inches), wider (85.2 vs 83.7 inches) and has longer wheelbase (122.0 vs 117.4 inches). Its top model comes with 21-inch wheels on all wheels, whereas the BMW has 19-inches. Panamera has a tighter turning diameter (38.7 vs 41.3 feet) and a larger gas tank (21.1 vs 20.1 gallons).
BMW is known for its handling and the M5 provides good steering feel with driver-adjustable settings. However, handling is a strong point of Porsche vehicles, and Panamera is no exception. It provides 4D Chassis Control that synchronizes the car’s suspension and chassis systems according to driving dynamics in all three spatial dimensions. The result is optimal handling and ride. In addition, Panamera benefits from adaptive air suspension, Porsche Stability Management System, and torque vectoring technology. With the Sport Package, you also get rear-wheel steering and launch control. The result is a car with amazingly precise steering and handling, while providing a comfortable ride in all situations.
