    My Panamera Turbo S is almost ready

    Car is in quality inspection right now...will be cleared for delivery sometimes this week. Hopefully.Smiley

    With a little bit of luck, I should have it end of next week. 

    Can't wait... Smiley

    Congrats RC, i loved the wildness and the impetuousness of PanTurbo, I'm sure Turbo S provides even more.  And great that you will be having the car earlier than expected, you gotta modify your signature accordingly ;)

    Thanks. I will. Smiley

    It was a surprise for me too: I got a call last week, telling me "hey, your car is almost ready". Today I called my dealer and he confirmed. With some luck, it could be here at my dealer end of next week. All payments have been made today, all necessary documents procured, I'm just waiting for the car to arrive. Smiley

    That's a nice suprise. Hope it turns out to be as expected.

    Not many surprises possible. Only thing I don't know yet...the tires mounted. I don't want the Pirellis and I'm curious if I'm not going to end up with them. I hope it will be Michelin, Pilot Sport or Supersport. The person who saw my car thinks they were Michelin but I don't know if I'm going to be that lucky. It was impossible to choose, I really tried. The tires are coming on a just-in-time basis for production and it is almost impossible to control the type of tire mounted. At least my engine has been tested...output is...let's say...satisfactory. Smiley

    I've made tire type a condition of delivery more than once. Once on M3 I told them I wouldn't take possession if it had Conti's and then again for my Boxster S and C2S. The dealer always made the changes with no argument. Smiley


    Re: My Panamera Turbo S is almost ready

    I just saw a black one parked in front of me while I was sitting outside a store enjoying a nice lunchtime. It had, for lack of a better description. Aston-like wheels with black centers. It is different, but it is finished well and can look nice from some angles. (trying to be mellow)


    Re: My Panamera Turbo S is almost ready

    Congrats RC...Enjoy and looking forward to lots of pictures.

    Mercedes CLS63 BiTurbo Performance Package vs Porsche Panamera Turbo S

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOiVUHrTJe0&feature=g-all-u

    they are even

    F10 BMW M5 vs Porsche Panamera Turbo S (550 HP)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWNNV98ZjN4&feature=relmfu

    M5 a lil bit quicker

     

     


    Re: My Panamera Turbo S is almost ready

    The CLS pulled the Porsche in each race, they were far from even.  The M5 beat it like a rug.  Brutal V10 power!

     


    Re: My Panamera Turbo S is almost ready

    You mean Brutal V8 Biturbo Power smiley
