That panamera sure does look nice. But from the back it is horendous. I thought the design was going to grow on me after sometime ,but in vain. Anyways as mlcarrera rightly said it is neither here or there.People who wanted this car , i really want to now what they were looking in for a car to qualify to their standards

The thing about this thread is, I suspect most of the pictures will be of pretty much the same car

Anyway I just saw the Turbo, being driven by the owner himself. Strangely, about 6-7 cars behind was his Phantom, furiously followed by a cop car, while the Panamera was left alone. If it's meant to be a decoy, I guess using a car slighty more subtle than the Panamera should do the trick. Hehe.

Pretty much two cars till now. There also is a dark blue Panemera 4S, saw it last evenening and the owner seemed real nervous with the other cars coming too close. I was in a hurry and could not take a picture.

Yes thats what the owner does. I do not understand the sense in it but i guess he likes his luxuries close to him .

Its hard to realize how fast time passes. 4 years of one of the most expensive parking lots.

I thought the Panamera 4S has a maximum speed of 282kmph.

Infact the top speed on the turbo is 303kmph.

where in the city of mumbai is one going to drive at that , the sealink too has now been given the speed breakers to ensure the top speed to be < 70kmph

IMO mumbai should have a special track created to enjoy the real drive of these babies and where one can finally breathe the air of satisfaction of their HUGE investments made in possessing them

I saw it at Tote a few weekends back, parked in behind the F430 spyder with 123 regn no. Was quite a sight But the Ferrari over-powdered the panamera with it's presence !
