2010 Porsche Panamera Cutaway Car Interview – David Donohue

While testing the 2010 Porsche Panamera, we had an opportunity to pick Porsche driver David Donohue’s brain about the features and design of the new Panamera. With the help of a Panamera cutaway car, you get a rare glimpse into some of the things that makes this car so great, like the low hood with the technology to prevent a pedestrian from going through the windshield in case of an accident to the thick doors that help provide the quiet ride. Donohoue also points out some of the smart design aspects, like the 100 L (just under 26.5 gallon) fuel tank that is hidden under the rear seats, and the tactfully-placed exhaust. For more on the 2010 Panamera, check out the video interview with David Donohue.

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
