    Car and Driver reviews Panamera Turbo

    We just received the December 2009 Car and Driver which contains a Panamera Turbo Review.

    Highs: Scary fast, Bentleyesque interior, as visceral as an abattior.

    Lows: Bizarre shape, poor rearward view, base price of $133,395.

    The Verdict: More 911 Turbo than a luxury sedan.  But, hey, is that a bad thing?

    "On at least three points, our drivers reached consensus.  First, the Panamera is the spiritual successor to the 928 in the way that Christopher Buckley is the spiritual successor to W. F. B., Jr.: related in name but not so much in philosophical purpose.  Second, the Panamera is handsome from a front three-quarter view but otherwise is an ovoidial festival of lava-lamp lumps.  Third -- and most crucial -- this isn't a luxosedan.  It's luxurious, oh, God, yes, is it ever.  But it's a sports car that happens to have two roomy rear seats.  No BMW 7-series or Benz S-class is as gutsy, as connected, as prejudiced toward instant-gratification agility and white-hot velocity.  So you might call it a "tweener".  You might call it wonderful."

    0-60 mph = 3.3 seconds

    0-120 mph = 11.9 seconds

    0-160 mph = 24.6 seconds

    1/4-mile =  11.7 seconds @ 119 mph

    300 foot diameter skid pad = 0.92 g

    Braking 70 - 0 mph = 159 feet

    Car and Driver Observed fuel economy = 21 miles/US Gallon

    Funny thing: a complaint about such US$ price demonstrates a special version of the relativity theory I guess...

    $133k US$ Smiley That is less than Euro 90.000 or approx. Euro 50 US$ cheaper than in Europe Smiley


    Re: Car and Driver reviews Panamera Turbo

     How does the 0-60 time of 3.3 square with what markus posted in the other thread of 0-62 of 4.1?

     

    3.3 is LP670 time. Sounds hard to believe.

    0-60mph in 3,3s with 1-foot rollout (as used by US mags) equals to european 0-100km/h in 3,8s. So far Panamera did 3,9 to 4,1s in german mags and even 3,66s in italian Auto.

    LP670 did 0-100km/h repeatedly in 3,0 to 3,2s. It should do 0-60mph with rollout comfortably under 3,0s. Should be good for 2,6s. It did 2,8s in Road and Track.
