    • Comparing the 600 hp twin turbo V12 BMW M760Li to the new Porsche Panamera Turbo

      Autocar decided to compare the BMW 760li and the new Panamera Turbo for some reason. Just because they are big, heavy, and have four doors does not mean they are in the same class. The Panamera should be going up against the BMW M5.


      Speaking of big and heavy though look at what these things weigh. The Panamera is lighter but hardly light at 4398 pounds. The M760Li xDrive comes in at a whopping 4806 pounds.

      The Panamera is lighter but also far more about the driving experience. It handles better, is sharper, and overall just is more fun to drive. No real surprise there. The 760Li is just a luxurious and fast tank.

      They drag race the cars around the 5:50 mark in the video and here is the result:


      No trap speeds because the British don't know what those are apparently. The Panamera Turbo is the quicker car but the M760Li is no slouch.

      The new F90 M5 should handle the Panamera Turbo quite easily considering the new Mercedes-AMG W213 E63 S has no trouble with it.

        Wouldn't it make a lot more sense to compare the "executive" model of the Panamera? I mean, it is the long wheelbase 7-series.

        (Unless this is the executive model and I just stopped listening/caring?)

        Considering Porsche doesn't have a bigger or more luxurious sedan that would definitely make the most sense.
