Porsche Panamera... is Perfect...
That rear seat looks extremely comfortable.

Bar the looks, this car is the best car I've owned/driven so far. 2 days ago I took a trip of 500 Km to another city, the navigation is very helpful and gives the best illustration of routes specially in DXB complicated bridge networks. Ot even shows the exact sign board on the road. That mini screen next to the rev counter is very handy.
This car is fantastic and I am glad I will be co-pilotion a Turbo
soon one of my friend's father got the beauty home a week ago.
I'll post pics after the drive
Although I have only seen the Panamera in photo's, the looks have grown on me. At a minimum, very unique. Your's looks particularly good Sayyaaf, love the white! And as you point out, it drives like crazy. Impressive automobile if you ask me.
rurella you seem to have a taste like mine in driving style, man if you got the chance to drive it, please do. The car will truely amaze you. I think the motor journalists didn't do the car justice, they focused on the price and styling and forgot evlauating it as a car. It is truely impressive. Drive the S/4S versions if you like linear performance, sharp steering/throttle and immediate power. The turbo is impressive for a FI car but not my type.
I used to not like the looks of this car from the pictures, but after seeing it in person at the Chicago Auto Show, I love it!
One more thing, the car is very fuel efficient. Porsche really nailed this car.
I intend to Sayyaaf! And if I were to buy one, it would most likely be the 4S. Aside from that, I am actually trying to convince myself that I could get by with a 911 (one of my dream cars although I would wait for the 991) and use the wife's 4 door when needed for business.
I will also give the F10 550ix a whirl if I choose the sedan route, unless BMW softened it up too much with "joy".
lol @ joy thing. I don't know about the 5er but the Panamera is more upscale than the 5er. And 911 is nice but day-to-day, the Panny would suit you better, at a touch of a button it as 911 , unpress that button its an S class. Really impressive. Sport chrono is a must, without it the throttle feels lazier and not that different from BMW.
Thanks Sayyaaf, can you please explain the need/benefit of the sport chrono in more detail? I probably would have summarily dismissed the need for this feature without your comment.
Sure: First let me start with the official Sport Chrono package explanation by Porsche
The real life experience is,
- more accurate throttle response (slightest touch accelerates the car while in normal mode, there is a small gap when you press the accelerator)
- Steering: is heavier and more accurate, faster too.
- Gear-changes: will break your neck
Wow Ree. wonderful photos, I love the Panny. RS Spyder wheels are the most bueatiful wheels for the Panamera, Better than Turbo II wheels which look generic and familiar.
