Review

The new Porsche Panamera Turbo is a sensation luxury sports car. It manages to be both amazingly fast and supremely comfortable. 

But does it do both of those things better than anything else in the class? We pitch it against the BMW M6 Gran Coupe and Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe too, to find out which is best for both the driver and a captain of industry passenger.

Porsche is always the best, small car, big car, coupe, convertible, SUV, 2 doors, 4 doors, nothing matters, Porsche knows how to build very good driving cars!

No manual - no fun

Not sure that was the most objective or scientific way to decide which is the most luxurious performance car. All 3 very nice cars. The Porsche, being the newest and having 4WD on the wet road here, is probably the best all rounder, but to me the M6, both in terms of its sportier looks and being the most dynamic appeals more.

CLS63S 4Matic ,RS7 Performance ,AlpinaB6 would have been more equal competitors.All superb no doubt,and the Porsche is the choice if Money No Object.Here in Canada it is at least $50,000 more than all these rivals I mentioned.
Of all, the M6/B6 is the only one with a centre seat for my grandson to enjoy the ride as well.
Would love to see a proper full and instrumented test with the New E63S 4Matic+ and new M5 Xdrive.Not to forget the also upcoming new CLS63S,M6 Xdrive,Alpina B5/B6.Exciting times for the exotic luxury lot,and they are CARS, not SUV's !!

Why an all German comparison?
Surely an XJR would have been a very worthy contender in every respect against this line up.
It doesn't have to be German to be fast or luxurious, Autocar.

    Seat's fastest Leon ST is fun to drive quickly and has enough space for all the family, but VW's own Golf R Estate is even better to drive

    The new 911 GT3 is an excellent machine; does the addition of a manual gearbox make it even better?

    28 April 2017
    The Yeti has morphed into the Karoq for its second generation, and this early drive reveals a solid, practical small SUV that could challenge the class best
  • Opel Ampera-e

    Opel's second-generation Ampera is smaller than the first, and now purely electric. It's also very capable with a remarkable range

    The latest incarnation of the Elise may be out of its depth on track, but on the public road it is probably the purest version since the original
