Question

Which Panamera did you test-drove? The Turbo or the NA?
Can you justify the smoothness of $180,000 slip out of your bank account?

Then had to head back out and took the Panamera...mannnnnnnn it doesn't have 6MT but it is butter smoooth and just pure luxury...you feel like you're in an ergonomically correct and smooth chariot. One word describes the Panamera: smooth...butter smooth.

335 6mt is fun for 20 or 30 mins...Panamera is the car you want to live in for proper commutes...it can be quite fun with DCT once you know how to use Double clutch...you need to shift up before the tach actually hits the desired rev number otherwise you over rev. Shifts are lightning quick in sport mode, giving you butter smooth and quick acceleration. Short gear ratios help too.
