    Any idea when the new Bentley GT is due to be released? Spyshots? I heard it would come out in 2018 and is based on the speed 6 concept.

    I ask because then I could pick up a hugely depreciated 2017 W12

    wink

    I did it, got a 2016 W12 Mulliner for about half the price as the new model

    Congrats, very nice. Smiley

    Re: Bentley GT

    Ok, now it’s done.... I never wear white socks, shoes or adult diapers, but yeasterday I ordered a Bentley GT.😱 Long waiting, will receive it next spring, but I really think it will be a very nice, cozy DD. Migh keep the Panameran TS for some time, put we’ll see. Would give me some space problems. yes

    Driving my fourth Panameran and felt I needed something new. Since I also started to drive 5he cup car quit a lot, I thought would be a nice contrast to drive this kind of a car from time to time. And as Nick said, it is pretty much a 928, with some more craftsmanship in to it.

    Try to find this tread in a years time and post my findingskiss


    Re: Bentley GT

    Next Spring?! That's a pretty crazy wait for such a car.


    Re: Bentley GT

    Yep, but that was pretty much my choice. Get the GT2 RS this spring and didn’t want it this fall, so I said it wanted it next spring.smiley


    Re: Bentley GT

    Nice, congrats.. I would choose that over a Panamera every time..

    OK, just to be honest: In my opinion, a Bentley GT doesn't make sense next to a Panamera Turbo S but hey, if you have the money and want that car badly, why not? Smiley

    Congrats. Smiley

    Re: Bentley GT

    Congrats, I think the current Conti GT is one of the coolest GTs (not for me as I am too young) indecision


    Re: Bentley GT

    In our part of the world a Bentley is perceived as a far superior car to a Panamera. I have a Bentley GT & a 911 Turbo S, vastly different in usage & the Porsche is faster but not a patch on the GT in terms of comfort, elegance, interior etc. That Panamera is nothing special at all whatsoever, at least here - i can't say about European perceptions 


    Re: Bentley GT

    In the UK, I'd say the Panamera was perceived as a more expensive Audi A7? Bentley is in a different market. Not sure many would cross-shop them. Personally, I'd like either but only if someone else was taking the depreciation hit.

    The perception of Bentley in Germany depends on the city and region you live in. We have a family friend, he owns two Bentley Continental sedans (both in white Smiley) but he owns one of the biggest chair making factories in Germany, so...people expect this car from him. I also have a customer who is an entrepreneur and she drives a Bentley GT Coupe convertible. She is well known in the city (some of the buildings here are named after her...), so people expect this kind of car from her. Then, there is a real estate guy I know who also has a Bentley GT but his experience is pretty bad (according to him), especially the police stops him all the time (he has a migration background and a bit darker skin, so... Smiley). His next car is going to be a Mercedes S63 (I think he already ordered it).

    In Munich, you can see tons of Bentleys, no problem but in certain regions, it could be perceived at the same level as Ferrari or...Corvettes. Smiley 

    Panamera? Ranges from "glorified Audi" to "great Porsche". Reputation was a bit better though in the past, many women liked the car (incl. my wife) but now...not so much anymore, it kind of lost it's appeal, for whatever reason. Or the Macan stole the show. Smiley Smiley

    Re: Bentley GT

    in France, a Panamera is most of the time visible in Diesel. angry...but still a rare car.

    Bentley is even rarer...

    both carry a high end luxury side but Bentley remains above with Rolls at the top of the food chain. never saw one in my region...indecision

    here in UAE, you see more Bentley than Panamera and Panamera is priced crazy high because Porsche wants to advertise it as luxury sport car smiley.... FAIL. but here it is a special market...show off is legion.

    Re: Bentley GT

    In the Northeast we seem to see less and less high end Panamera and Cayennes. I really think the silly prices have finally sunk in especially in a low speed limit country. Conti GT are still a not common sight but they make much more sense value wise.


    Re: Bentley GT

    Had the opportunity to see the new auto at my Bentley dealership last evening.  Surprised by the imposing size that does transmit in photographs, but that said, one can truly live with this automobile.  If having to have only one auto for the rest of life, this would be the one.

    Re: Bentley GT

    The comparison between the Panamera and the Continental is terrible.

    The Porsche has a bland design, looks like a random car -not under the radar precisely but random in a bad way I mean- and lacks of proportions depending on the angle you see it.

    The Bentley has much more presence overall, it's a very good looking car.

    The interior of the "British" is a nicer place to be. Cozy, fine materials, well designed.

    How do they drive? Well, imho in this segment one should look for the best compromise firm-but-comfy ride. The Panamera might be faster through corners but I think the Continental has this "riding-on-a-carpet" feel without missing that wouldn't be a boat in the corners either.
