The most potent Panamera ever.
Porsche Panamera Turbo
Bentley slaps some parts onto a Panamera Turbo to shake down the Flying Spur.
We already knew it was prettier. Turns out the Panamera is smarter too.
Porsche's four-door is all new for 2017, and it's faster, more technologically advanced, and better looking than before.
Oh, look. It's the 2017 Porsche Panamera, complete with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine underhood.
Porsche is usually associated with being a sports car brand, but with vehicles like the Cayenne and Panamera it takes a step into the world of luxury against firmly established players like Mercedes-Benz. One way for the company to poke its head above the high-class fray is by taking things further, and in the case of the Panamera Exclusive Series at the Los Angeles Auto Show, it means pushing grandeur to extreme levels.
We live in a blessed time - a time when you can buy not just one, but two (or three, or four) monstrously powerful, blazingly fast four-doors that can't only keep up with modern supercars, but in some instances, will outperform them as well. Two of the finest are the Audi RS7 and the refreshed Porsche Panamera Turbo, and Motor Trend has been messing around with the both of them in this comparison video.
