    From SEMA:

    Shooters in Germany caught up to Porsche’s swansong for the current-generation Panamera, which will be discontinued in 2022. It is an extremely powerful variant of the four-door GT, and a name has yet to be given. After quite a long period of research with different grades of power, it is now clear the Über-Panamera will get 820 hp out of a tuned version of the existing engine. Porsche engineers wouldn’t talk about which powerplant might form the base; they just confirmed the output of 820 hp.

    Expect the Porsche Panamera “820 hp” to arrive in limited numbers in early 2020.

    I've always and continue to hate that car. It's plain ****ing ugly and the dimensions are terrible I don't care if it's fast enough to turn back time and has an AC vent pointed toward my crotch coddling my twig and berries when I'm driving. **** that car.

    I think it has to do with noise control at the Ring. They have to meet certain decibel ratings in certain areas.

    So tell us how you really feel.

    Jk, I’ve never been a fan either, but the ‘older’ I get, the more I like a versatile, fast 4 door car.

    The track usually has a decibel meter on one side to record each car as it passes. If you go over the decibel limit they will either a. warn you and tell you to add mufflers or b. throw you off the track. Manufacturers and race teams have been using turn downs or turn outs(to the left or right) to direct the exhaust noise in the opposite direction of the decibel meter. Usually at tracks near populated areas with ordinances restricting the noise generated by the track.

    I guess I'm in the minority here but that car is sexy as F and I'd drive it everyday if I could afford it and the roads allowed. I get why it doesn't appeal to most but for some reason I'm a fan, maybe because I know what's lurking underneath?
    If anyone wants to donate one I'm your guy!

    I actually passed one yesterday while driving, not THAT one, but a panomera first one I’ve seen in the wild.

    Ya know in person it’s better then most hatch coupe back kinda things.

    This test variant looks pretty bad. But I've seen some in the wild that look pretty sweet.

    I prefer the Euro spec Sport Turismo model over.....

    .....the regular sedan. The rear end is horrible. IMO.
