It's not easy being the middle child, unless you're the 2021 Porsche Panamera 4S.
Slotting between the base Panamera and the potent GTS, the 4S does a great job striking a balance between sport and luxury.
As you might expect, the 2021 Porsche Panamera 4S is not a cheap proposition.
My tester sports a base price of $106,350 (including $1,350 for destination), and with a relatively small smattering of aforementioned options, that price swells up like a bad bee sting to $128,040.
Competitors abound in this space.
If you want something equally as sporty, Mercedes-Benz offers the GT 4-Door or CLS-Class, while those opting for something more luxurious may gravitate toward a BMW 7 Series.
Porsche also offers a plug-in hybrid variant for those not wanting to go full green, but forward-thinkers may want to consider something like a Mercedes-Benz EQS, Porsche Taycan or Tesla Model S.
Whether alone or in comparison, though, the 2021 Porsche Panamera 4S is a winner.
Its large dimensions belie just how agile it is, offering a good blend of comfort and precision with few, if any drawbacks.
