Rear-seat entertainment comes in the form of these seatback-mounted monitors. We like these because they give passengers a better view of the screens without interfering with the driver's view.

Say what you will about the polarizing exterior aesthetic. This interior looks downright spacious and comfortable. Porsche is offering 13 different color and material combinations for the Panamera.

Porsche calls the Panamera's cabin a "cockpit for four." With four sport bucket seats, we can see why.

Spec a Panamera S or 4S and you get eight-way power seats in front with a driver memory package. Buyers with monty to burn can further choose optional 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats (which we assume feature some sort of active bolstering, like the Mercedes-Benz CL 550 tested earlier).

For the Porsche Panamera Turbo, the steering wheel is power adjustable with memory.

The rear seats are separated and individually adjustable. Spec the optional 8-way power rear seats and they'll all but adjust themselves!

An available four-zone climate control system gives each seating area individual control of functions such as temperature, air distribution, and venting direction. Too much? Nah, this is Porsche!
