    This will be interesting. So Porsche really wants to expand and become mainstream. VW has lots of money to pump into the brand, so might as well.

    fu ck u porsche u are srsly making crappy cars now..no longer the porsche i used to know..the panamera just looks hideous..

    The last Panamera I drove blew my mind and reminded me of the old E39 M5. As an overall package the 5 series will be hard to trump but there is plenty of room for Porsche to attack to the sporty side of things that BMW has somewhat strayed away from in the F10.
