    Do you think the new A8 would be preferrable to the Panamera turbo?

    The Audi still has the understatement factor. Only a test drive will indicate whether the Audi can get close to the Panamera in terms of driving dynamics Smiley

     I don't believe so.  Panamera Turbo was designed from ground up to be a very high performance GT, whereas A8 would be designed as a limo first over and above anything else.  However if Audi has a RS8 up their sleeve, then maybe Panamera will have a fight in it's hand.

     100% agree. Recent comparison tests (I did not drive the Panamera yet) indicate that the Panamera is on par with (or even better than) state-of-the-art luxury cars like the BMW 7 series when it comes to ride comfort and interior space. All these tests also state clearly that the Panamera is much sportier than  the BMW 7 series. Ergo: why buy a 7 series (except maybe for the understatement factor)... My concern (thinking from Audi's perspective now) is that the same might apply to the new A8...

    The Panamera performance and interior wise is such a great car.  But I dont know how anyone can get past how extremely ugly the rear of the panamera is.  Audi all the way.

    Because they cost a lot less...


    Re: New Audi A8-first teaser

    Regardless of the performance AUDI has been designing some good looking cars (looks wise). For a Luxury Sedan or Luxury Sports Sedan looks is everything and unfortunately Panamera Ain't got it Smiley.

    Re: New Audi A8-first teaser

    Does anyone have any figures of how many S class, 7 series and A8s are sold worldwide?

    It's good to put things into perspective.
