finally saw the porsche panamera

finally saw one of these beast on the road it was the turbo one, and i honestly think its one of those cars you have to see in person to decide whether you like it or not. I for one liked it by just looking at pictures but in person they look so much nicer, it looked really sleek in black at least. I would have snapped a picture but I was busy drooling over it.

Been seeing one for ages, the guy living a few houses down from me has one xD
I'd say from the front it looks pretty good, but once you get round to the back it looks a bit horrible.

I was skeptical about them at first, its something that you have to see in person. I was prepared not to like it from the pictures I saw but when I was invited to the unveiling at the dealer my whole opinion changed about this car. So much so that I am considering getting one, just test drove a loaded 4s and was BLOWN AWAY at how much I liked this car. Was going to buy it but am waiting on a Ruby Red one that they have on the boat.

Saw in real life also. Has a aggressive look to it while driving a whole family around.

It is a horrendous design, it's just as ugly in person as it is in pictures.

They are a marmite car in my opinion, you either like it's looks or you don't. One thing I will say is that it's interior is a work of art, it may be a button overload but it's a feast on the eyes and a joy to drive. But man it's a big car, and this is from someone already driving a car (XF) that over 5m long.

I saw 3 last sunday in Malibu and I am not sure how I feel about them yet. Big car, obviously has a lot to offer, but the looks are...well...hmmm.

Been seeing some in Dallas when they came out, not impressed at all. And the one with the wheels and body kits don't make it look any better. The back is hideous.
