the more I see this, the more I like this Porsche...

I don't think I needed to see the electronic tow hitch in action though....

I still don't like the hump-back....but....if one looks at it as a replacement for an SUV (can tow; can put the dog in the back) it starts to make some sense. I rode in one - fast and nice.

That tow bar was quite phallic...:banana:

It still hasn't grown on me yet, ( the car, not the tow bar). Tough gig trying to make a four door (or 5 door) look like a sports car. I'm sure they're awesome cars to drive, but if I wanted a luxury sports four door, IMO the CLS63, RS6 and XFR are better looking options, without the compromise of trying to "look" like a sports car.

Those are the V6's filmed in the Western Cape. I saw one on the road- looks like a huge torpedo from the front

A huge but beautiful torpedo. I recently visited the dealership to have a closer look and it is a stunning car. The best looking Porsche bar the 918 Spyder from the current cars. The designers managed to create a car that cannot be mistaken for anything but a Porsche yet seems contemporary (ie of the times, fresh and modern)

Love this car. From the time I first saw it on the factory floor in Leipzig until it was were released to the public, my observation is that is it much better in person that in photos. I'm trying to convince my wife to trade her Cayenne Turbo for a Panamera 4S in a year or two....

It is a beautiful car viewed in person. I sat in a Turbo at the dealer and must admit I loved it. For some it will be a great choice, but for me the 2010 Cayman S sitting in my garage is me.:dance::beer:

I saw my first Panamera on the road yesterday, a Turbo with a bike rack on the roof. Drove together for a while. Looks better in person than in 2D for sure.

When the fat lady sings

As for the drive (S with PDK) it felt like a large, front engined 911 with a smoother ride. The V8 is not as charismatic or exhilirating as the flat 6 but it has a nice growl when you step on it. A big practical 4 door "hatchback" with the interior of a luxury limo that goes like a 911 but is better looking
