The Panamera is cosmetically challenged but a go faster version would help as it would flash past before you had a chance to notice its looks.

You mean a 4.8 litre twin-turbo V8 doesn't make it fast enough as it is?!

Mind you, I'm looking forward to the Panamera GT3, with a pair of 911 GT3 3.8 litre flat-6s stuck together to make a 7.6 litre flat-12... well, a man can dream, can't he!

I've noticed that this tends to happen quite a lot whenever Autocar publishes a significantly large number of articles about a particular manufacturer. Wonder why.
