Default Spending a day with Panamera, 911 930, A6 Supercharged, A8 TDi and E 350

One boring life means just go out and check out the new Luxury cars and briefly drive the Audis and the Merc. Spotting the 500 and 1971 Porsche 911 930 only makes you feel better.

Enjoy the pics.

500 and Audi LEDS.

Porsche Panamera and 911 930.

The panamera is substantially huge and not that small as pics show it.

OMG, that first Panamera picture is not something I needed to see. It looks ghastly. I am a real fan of the swooping rear of the Porsche 911s, but on the Panamera it looks like an American football, at the instant of kick off.

Compared to that the relatively simpler lines of the 930 and the ducktail, the sophistication in the the recent designs make it look almost cartoonish.

Though, both must be superb cars to drive nonetheless. Looks like you had a field day huh, Sid!

Sid, very nice pics. Did you get to drive any of these cars? The Panamera does not look that good in my opinion. It looks like a hunkered down Cayenne. In fact it looks sit it's sitting on the loo in the first pic!

Is it just me or do the buttons on the Merc's steering wheel look extremely tacky?

Thanks for the snaps. Can really see that you had a good day Hard luck though that you couldnt get the interior ones of the Panamera.

This is the first time that I am seeing the interiors of A8 and it really does look impressive and spacious. Though personally I would rate the back seat comfort of 7 series higher than A8.

Simply superb! The A8's leg room is amazingly spacious! The silver color is not doing good justice to the E class :(

I sat in it and spent a good 90 minutes with the Panamera. I did not want to insult my camera by clicking the interior pics, they were black all over. Besides, the interior pics are elsewhere on the Mumbai launch thread.

After sitting inside the A8, I did not feel comfortable inside the panamera.But the car has a substantial road prescence and it completely blew me away as I thought that it must be an elongated 911 when I saw it in pics before. In fact, the cayenne looks meek in front of it.
