This new car wears the famous Porsche badge on the hood, but has an untraditional feature: four doors. The Porsche Panamera is a luxury sedan, but part sports car as well. There's also a big dose of practicality, with a big hatch leading to a big cargo area.

This is the second time Porsche has moved away from only making sports cars. The Cayenne SUV shocked many when it came out some six years ago.

The base Panamera moves along thanks to a 400 horsepower V8 engine. There is also a Panamera Turbo model with 500 horsepower and the speed to take on a race track. The basic S model lists for around $90,000.
