We now have BMWs, Audis and AMGs with crushing performance levels. Porsche on the other hand, the undisputed people's supercar of Germany, decided to stay on their high pedestals and act as thou they're not aware of what's going on. When Ms and AMGs and RSs were created to garner the same respect as the famous Porsche crest; Porsche themselves now happily adorn the crest onto 230hp Macans.
Worse still, the new Panamera's 3.0 V6 Turbo engine was detuned to 330hp while the Panamera S' 2.9 V6 TwinTurbo makes a paltry 440hp. All this to make way for the Panamera Turbo S at 'only' 550hp. Not lousy numbers by any measure, but embarrassing when a Porsche Panamera needs to give way to a head lamp flashing A-Class coming from behind. This is horribly conservative, embarrassingly slow for a Porsche that no longer try their best to stay ahead of the game. And I haven't come to the point yet when buyers need to top up money just to select between comfort or sports.
