Rear-seat entertainment

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.

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).

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!
