    SciFrog:

    The Panamera is not popular period. It is expensive and albeit more sporty than the completion, not enough to be in a whole other class, and practicality is limited...

    I see the one from my Porsche dealership almost every day when I drive home from my business. The chalk colored one. Looks amazing in my opinion, the rear looks very fresh, the front is not that modern but still acceptable. Still, it looks a bit weird for such a large sedan, it attracts a lot of attention (probably what owners want).

    Yep, very.....blush


    Re: OFFICIAL: New Panamera (2016)

    "Expensive" depends on your view and your car needs.  One could easily argue that a 911 is too expensive for what use you get out of it.  In the U.S., A new Panamera 4S is $9000 cheaper than a 9114S, and you get much more room, practicality, luxury, technology, and almost the same performance.  So which one is more "expensive"?


    Re: OFFICIAL: New Panamera (2016)

    The 911 4S should be compared to the Panamera turbo which is way more expensive...


    Re: OFFICIAL: New Panamera (2016)

    Isn't a 911 Turbo be the one that compares to the Panamera Turbo?

    Audi "threw out" their last S8 (around 1000 cars) for 699 EUR a month, 24 months, 15k km per year, no down payment and VAT included.

    The old S8 is not much worse than the current Panamera Turbo...

    I know that this comparison may stink but I think that the Panamera got too expensive over time and I'm not sure customers are willing to pay these prices. Time will tell, especially when the new Cayenne shows up.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New Panamera (2016)

    if Panamera is expensive, then how about the Ferrari FF or whatever it is called now?

    Porsche is and will always be more expensive than the equivalent Audi, BMW and Mercedes - as Porsche, there is no substitute.  I really don't see the point of its price argument at all.  yes

    Re: OFFICIAL: New Panamera (2016)

    Have you driven a V12 Ferrari? The old gen Panamera turbo felt like a S class compared to it. Bland, disconnected and muted sound.

    F12...almost got myself one (almost bought one, customer didn't pick it up, dealer wanted to get rid of it, don't remember the price anymore but it was somewhere around 230 or 240k for a quite well optioned car) but wife was against it. Very nice sound, very sporty ride but I cannot say that my Panamera Turbo S felt much less sporty. It definitely felt much heavier though and yes, the exhaust sound was OK but nothing to write home about (Panamera).

    Re: OFFICIAL: New Panamera (2016)

    No, I have not driven a Ferrari V12 yet as I do not plan to buy one.

    Yes, a Ferrari is special, but is a FF worth twice of a Panamera turbo is very subjective, definitely not to me.

    Is a Panamera turbo or 4S worth 30 to 50% more of an equivalent Audi, BMW or Mercedes?  definitely Yes for me.

    From a subjective point of view. my R8 V10 Plus is worth around 40% more than a 911 Turbo S. I'm not kidding. Emotionally, there is no comparison. Ferrari? Well, same thing...I guess. The engine/exhaust sound is half of the fun or at least 40%. Smiley

    That car is allegedly an early chassis prototype for the next Bentley Flying Spur.

    Possible...since the Panamera platform is used for Bentley as well. kiss

    Thanks, but no Audi for me. I bought a used A6 for my daughter, but all R8 discussions on this forum has convinced me that I am too much a man for an Audi. Let the 18 year old girls and some German men without chest hair stick to Audi....SmileySmiley And as a Porsche freak, I'm used to waiting.... For the next last,next faster,"ordinary" diesel or whatever..Smiley

    @JR-550: Thanks for your creative thinking and advice, my post above should not be interpreted as if I was ungreatfull for your tip. If you read this forum, you surely understand....Smiley I'll be in Belgium in October in order to see if the new engine in my GT3 can beat the old one on Spa, so if you live nearby, please come and say hiSmiley
