Porsche Panamera Hearse Is Dead Serious

This is a Porsche to die for, and no, it’s not a shooting brake.

We know Porsches had a notorious widow-making reputation back in the day – due to their awkwardly positioned engines – but this is ridiculous. Spotted in Italy, this Panamera hearse might just be most unusual Porsche we’ve seen in a while, but then again, nothing can improve the looks of the luxury-four-door model.

Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly what powerplant it houses under the hood, but those wheels come as standard with the Turbo and Turbo S models.

Granted, something tells us, by looking at the car, that a new set of wheels wasn’t the most challenging modification brought to it, but for argument’s sake, let’s assume it has a has 4.8-litre twin turbocharged V8 under its hood.

What would this car tell about the deceased? That the individual was a petrolhead in life, as in death, with an exquisite taste in luxury and elegance? Don’t be ridiculous, that’s what the Maserati hearse is for.

  • Rich Money

      Hey, Germans need their hearse too, even if it is ugly.

      • Teddy1987

        They’ve got MB E-class, Vito and probably Sprinter.
        In UK you’ll find a Nissan Leaf Hearse, which has not been extended, so the coffin takes up all the room in the cabin, leaving only room for the driver. You’ll also find Mercedes, Jaguar and Ford hearses in UK. If you look at the new types of hearses, they’ve taken it too far, stretched the car way too much and built these ridiculously roof extensions.

    The Panamera Hearse laughs at your Panamera’s puny hunchback!

  • JEEZ.

  • Zandit75

    Umm, why do you need 4drs for a hearse?

    • Braddo

      Family can travel with the casket

      • Zandit75

        I can’t think of many people who would be comfortable with that.

      • Teddy1987

        No. They don’t. Unless it’s stretched more than this.
        The passenger doors are optional, and in this case, serves as access to the front of the coffin, so you can lay flowers there etc. On the Volvo V90 3 door f.ex, the passenger doors work as tool compartments. You can open them, but they will only give you access to the underside of the frame for the coffin, and nothing else.

        Most hearses begins their life as a 4 door, if not a 5 door, and then gets extended. Having all the doors left, makes the cost lower, since you don’t mess with the frame and body’s integrity.
