'Ring Battle: Porsche Panamera vs Aston Martin Rapide!

This has to be the coolest prototype testing I've seen! Looks like Porsche and Aston Martin engineers are having fun with their pre-pro car. Now down to business, which would you buy if you were rich? I'd have the Porsche. Yes, its not as pretty as the Aston or it probably wont be as luxurious but its 1/3 the price of the Aston and I'm almost positive it'll drive better and have more power.

porsche hands down

Aston Martin has nothing on the Porsche,
lot of power and weight that's about it
in the Aston.

wait a sec the ZR1 would beat both right?
I would hope so

There's nothing better than a little friendly race between 2 competitors. Ok, I don't know exactly how friendly it was, but I bet it was fun!!

But I'd take the Panamara (<that's a mouth full for me), Because it just looks over all, just a little bit better than the Aston Martin. Also The Aston still has some suspenion tuning to do to get rid of all that body roll. The Panamara isn't nearly as bad.

I voted for the Rapide, the Panamera is going to be really quick, but it's ugly as hell! When these cars come out, they need to be pitted against the CTS-V

Most Porches look alike too, IMHO. I just think AM looks better

Aston Martin FTW

Porsches are hideous IMHO while Astons are the epitome of beauty (with Alfa Romeo being the possible exception).
