CTS-V vs Panamera





That panamera is nice, but the V is the best bang for the buck though, the pricing for the panamera was just revealed, its between $89,800-$132,600

I would definately take the CTS. Not sure how well that Panamera will sell in this economy, though Porsche has a pretty religious group of followers. We shall see....

4.8 liter twin turbo V* is good up to 500+ horses, and it has 4WD

V may have bang for the buck, but the Panamera is a Porsche, and I'd take a German car over an American one anyday (minus muscle cars)

I'm not thrilled with the design. For some reason it reminds me of a Ford Taurus wagon...*shudders*

I have a 911 but I don't like the Panamera.
No doubt an awesome powertrain but that ass end doesn't look right at all.

Superior German engineering is a myth, like crappy American reliability. That said, Porsche's are pretty good all around: good performance, good interior, good reliability, heck even good fuel economy.

However, I haven't heard a single bad thing said about the CTS-V.

That 4 door Panamerica is truly ugly. The 2 door version it was based from is pretty nice. This new one reminds me of a Citroen.

The Cayenne is another fail. Bland and overpriced.

Absolutely hideous. From every angle its ugly, the face, the profile, the rear, gross.

Possible Panamera customers should just wait for the Lamborghini Estoque. Best looking car ever made imo. Its also base on the Panamera but it has the Gallardo 5.2 V10; 552hp

the looks of the panamara have grown on me.....but i would still prefer the cts-v over it. to get similar performance in a panamera your gonna have to spend about 140k..... thats a CTS-V and a Camaro SS with money to spare.....
