What used Porsche Panamera hatchback will I get for my budget?
Put aside at least £36,000 for a 2016 car, even one with a higher mileage. For a 2017 car with average mileage and a full service history, you'll pay nearer £40,000 to £55,000, depending on engine and trim.
Turbo models are more – expect to pay at least £60,000 for one of those – and the Sport Turismo versions also attract a small premium above the standard car. For a 2020 or 2021 example, you'll be paying from £80,000, and £80,000 to £100,000 for a 2022 model.
Annual road tax was based on CO2 emissions before the changes of April 2017 came into force, and most Panameras (other than the hybrids) will be quite hefty. Those cars registered after April 2017 will pay the standard flat rate, currently £165 per year for petrol and diesel cars, and £155 per year for hybrid models. Cars will also be subject to a luxury car supplement, currently £355 per year for years two to five, as they cost over £40,000 new.
Insurance and servicing
Insurance groups are high, with only the lower powered petrol-engined cars being in a group other than 50, the top one. Servicing is best carried out by a Porsche specialist, and that can be pricey. Spare parts will be expensive, too.
