Just got back from a month in Europe. The Panny is god over there...everyone loves the look as do I.

It's just a matter of taste...Germans hate fast food, Americans love the crap
Don't get defensive because everyone's hammering the look of your choice in vehicle. My taste is good design when I see it, has nothing to do with being American. Three British people (from Top Gear) despise the look of that thing. It transcends what country you're from. Porsche sells alot of Cayenne's and Panamera's, but that doesn't mean they're great looking vehicles. Also, I happen to love the CTS V Wagon and E61 M5.

I'm not going to get into an argument about this, I happen to think the Panamera is well engineered but aesthetically it is a disaster - a big hunchbacked orb. Then you have their 997 which is on the opposite end of the spectrum - a true masterpiece.

When in doubt, find row zed.
