Porsche's large, four-door luxury car has a coupe silhouette and a hatchback body. It delivers strong performance, with comfort for four adults. Handling is agile, with excellent steering and a supple ride. Normally aspirated and turbocharged V8s are offered, along with a V6. The quick-shifting seven-speed automated manual isn't very smooth at low speeds. The beautifully finished interior is fitted with a button-dominated center console that can be intimidating at first. A hybrid version is new for 2012. It shuts off the engine while coasting, even at highway speeds.
