Then I would go with the BMW for sure. Decades of development have gone into the refinement of the 5 and it shows. BMW builts THE BEST sport sedans in the world, thats what they do. In addition I believe the current 5 is the most beautiful yet.

IMO the Panamera is just another model Porsche pulled out of their ass to grab market share. I just dislike everything about it and I was not impressed driving it.

BTW- I also own a 911 C4S so that might tell you something.

This Maserati is way more fun to drive than the Porsche. But it depreciates much faster, is long in the tooth and will soon be replaced by a newer design.

If you go this route, I'd suggest buy used.
I agree this is one of the best ways to buy a Maserati, leasing a new one through your business, then buying it at lease end is probably #1.

Disclaimer: I do own a 911 and believe that is the sweet spot for Porsche IMHO.
