2015 Porsche Panamera Pricing
Most of you may have heard about the Porsche Panamera. In fact, even you don’t have enough money to afford one, you can easily rent one from Hertz in almost all major US airport rental locations, see our earlier article here.
The last time I was at the airport, I asked Hertz for the price of renting a Panamera and they said it runs about $200 PER DAY, withOUT negotiation. I think you can definitely bring the price down further more if you haggle with them.
2015 Panamera Executive?
Have you ever heard of a long-wheel-base Panamera? Yes, Porsche indeed has several and it is called the “Panamera Executive.” It stretches another 5.91in based on Panamera’s wheelbase of 114.96in, which reaches a total of 120.87in.
Depends on different engine options, the 2015 Panamera Executive has different trims such as 4S, Turbo and Turbo S. Now the family of Panamera Executive will have one more member: the Panamera Exclusive Series.
However, if you expect better performance in the Panamera Exclusive Series, you are wrong. Mechanically speaking there is really no difference from the Executive Turbo S trim. The difference is mainly in treatments in exterior/interior styling, better leather and special colors etc. Oh, also “a custom-tailored luggage set with two trolleys, two weekender bags and a beauty case”, also made by Poltrona Frau leather.
How Much Are the Upgrades?
All those aesthetic upgrades will cost you another $63,400 on top of the $200,500 Panamera Turbo S Executive, which is $263,900 plus $995 for S&H. This makes it the second most expensive vehicles in the Porsche lineup (the first one is the Porsche 918). Which makes it more exclusive is its 100-unit limited production.
Are you willing to pay over $60-grand for just aesthetic upgrades? I am not sure for myself, but I totally understand people who like luxury bags such as LV, Chanel etc, may be interested in this, for its exclusivity.
Want to take a look at this limited-edition Porsche in person? I have a good news for you: come to the 2014 LA auto show next month and check out the world premier for yourself.

Porsche Panamera Turbo S Executive Exclusive Series
Luxuriously equipped limited edition of the Panamera
Stuttgart/Atlanta. Porsche has revealed the Panamera Exclusive Series, which features exquisite luxury and a particularly comprehensive array of standard features. Finished at the Exclusive factory, only 100 of these vehicles will be created worldwide. The limited production series featuring unique equipment is based on the 570 hp all-wheel drive Panamera Turbo S Executive which includes a longer wheelbase increasing rear passenger space. The world premiere takes place at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.
For the first time at Porsche, a two-tone paint finish will be offered for the new Panamera Exclusive Series. Jet Black metallic is combined with a contrasting Chestnut Brown metallic highlighting the side of the vehicle from front to rear starting behind the front air outlet. Each one of the 100 vehicles is meticulously painted by hand to ensure a perfect harmonious progression of the two colors. Traditional paint offerings are also available. The large 20-inch Sport Classic wheels are painted in jet black metallic exclusively for this model.
The interior is elegantly finished to match. All of the seats and the lower door panels are covered in chestnut brown leather with a very special finish developed by the Italian studio Poltrona Frau®. The leather used for the Panamera Exclusive Series is all hand-picked and exceptionally soft. In the center of the seat panels the larger individual ventilation perforations are cut in the outline of the Porsche crest – exclusive to this small series. The upper door trim is Black Milled Nappa leather. Contrasting Chestnut Brown stitching accentuates selected materials. Inspired by the two-tone exterior paint finish, the decorative interior trim elements also feature a blend of colors with a transition of dark walnut wood into a deep black piano lacquer surface from the front to the rear.
Porsche’s newly developed Rear Seat Entertainment System Plus is celebrating its world premiere in the Panamera Exclusive Series and comes as a standard feature for this model. The main components of the multimedia system are two high-resolution 10.1-inch touchscreens on the back of the front headrests with a built-in camera and integrated DVD player. The system facilitates comprehensive business and entertainment functions, including mobile internet access. The sound is played through wireless headphones or the Burmester® high-end surround sound system.
Every vehicle in the Panamera Exclusive Series has an interior plaque showing its individual limited edition number. On the outside, hand-made badges behind the front air intakes serve as a signature that the vehicle originates from the Porsche Exclusive factory.
A custom-tailored luggage set with two trolleys, two weekender bags and a beauty case – also made of Poltrona Frau® leather in Chestnut Brown and featuring crest-shaped perforations – is optionally available.
The Porsche Panamera Exclusive Series is now available for order and has an MSRP of $263,900, not including a destination charge of $995.
Porsche Exclusive represents the highest form of individualization direct from the factory. Since its formation in 1986, limited editions have repeatedly showcased new design ideas and what is technically achievable. Built by hand in the Porsche Exclusive factory, every vehicle underlines the manufacturer’s craftsmanship and passion for detail.
