Checking on the Panamera info packet you received in the mail, curious about what you received...a typical Porsche single model line brochure that would be ~75 pages or something different? And other items? Did you sign up for Panamera info on the Porsche website? Reason I'm asking...I have received nothing from Porsche (and I signed up for Panamera info many months ago) and my dealer says they have received nothing either...and my new Panamera 4S has been sitting at the port in Houston for two weeks with all the other Panameras, apparently held hostage by the EPA. Just getting anxious to get something!

Yes. Just yesterday, I saw one of the Panameras that is being hauled around to dealerships. It was a 4S Volcano Grey Metallic, with black/chalk leather interior. It was only at the Florida dealership a couple days before being shipped to the next dealer (today, I think). The car looked pretty awesome and I'm seriously considering putting in an order. This car is not for sale of course, as I was told the model is still pending EPA approval for sale in the US.

I understand this one is still at SunCoast Porsche in Sarasota until this evening. I'm taking my wife with me later today, as I don't want to place an order without her having seen it.

Champion actually had two 17's to poke around in during their C&C. It's at the top of the list right now for the next car. Just waiting for the dieselgate results.

Hah! I'm also waiting on a resolution to Dieselgate. I have TWO rides with the 3.0TDI, and I love 'em both.

Message from the UK. I've driven a total of about 500 miles in a couple of demos. A Night Blue 4S and a Carmine Red 4SD. Awesome car. My Panamera 4 is built and I am booked to collect it on March 1st. :-).


4SD that I drove over 400 miles in! My Panamera 4 will look just like this.

Loved it! I've had PDK in the Macan and 991.1. The Panamera has 8 speed. In the SD I was cruising at motorway speed+ and the engine was barely doing 1,000 rpm! Although it is a big car, when behind the wheel it feels a lot smaller and I nearly forgot that I wasn't still driving the 991.1! Cannot wait for collection!

Wow, is it normal for people to score demos like that? When I was ordering GT3 and TTS, I did not even get a test drive. I would totally love to put 500 miles on 2017 panamera before buying one :-)

I have a very good Porsche Centre! Tewkesbury in the UK, although to be fair, I did slightly exceed their preferred mileage for demo drives! ;-)

Panamera 4 is 1850kg (DIN).

For comparison:

991.2 C4 is 1500kg
Panamera 4 is 1850kg
Macan S petrol is 1865kg
Cayenne S is 2085kg

So 4,078 lbs. which is less than I thought so not too bad as compared to others.
