Nice job, Pete - and great pictures of course. I wasn't able to drive the Turbo we saw at the dealer a while back, but I'm hoping to set up a test drive before too long if possible.

I've got to say it is a very impressive car in person. Seeing it in the metal was the first time it truly hit me the Panamera is an alternative to the S-Class, 7-Series, and A-8in terms of size, accomodations, and certainly fit and finish. That said, if I was in the market (and I'm not), the Panamera comes in first place by a long shot. But that's just me, I guess... :taunt:

Thanks for providing a bit more details about the Mercs, I used to dream of a nice E55 back in 2000 when they first came out.

Congrats on getting the Panamera! When do you expect delivery?
I used to love Mercedes. Most recently, I had an '05 SL500 from 2005~2008. Porsche brought me out of that.

But thank you. I had my name and deposit placed on the first Panamera S to arrive in Hawaii a few weeks ago. Technically, my car arrived last week and I went for a spin on Saturday. However, I can only take delivery of the car after the launch party on Wednesday (the 28th).. so I suppose in a few days? ;) It's been like waiting to unwrap a (very expensive) present on Christmas.

I will make my own thread as not to hijack yours.

Pete, missed you at Catena's last night. Wow that car is a boat and as ugly as they come!! $153K for the turbo is absurd.

Hey PCay60,

I was hoping to make it but got tied up in the city. Couldn't get used to the look of the car?

I "may" get a chance to test drive that Turbo so look for an updated report soon...

Will not ever get used to the look of that car. If you drive the Turbo, be careful. There is $3,200 worth of luggage in the trunk!! Did see a really gorgeous Aston Martin in their other showroom.
