Porsche: What’s new for 2017

2017 Porsche Panamera

2017 Porsche Panamera

Porsche’s lineup may be small, but the automaker keeps things interesting with the many model variants it has an offer. It’s a formula that seems to be working as Porsche raked in 238,000 deliveries in 2016—a remarkable figure when you consider that the automaker operates in the pricier end of town.
