It is basically the same price as the X6-M, but has MUCH less power yet performs similarly if not better in most of the tests. Sure, call it ugly, just like you guys call the GT-R ugly(At least I don't think it is lol). But this thing hauls ass even without twin turbos. The Panamera Turbo will be a beast. Now I'm not saying I don't like the X6-M, I would love one. But it seems as if Porsche came out with a sensible option.I believe this is basically what the X6-M would be if it were a car.
Are you forgetting that a lot of people buy into these cars simply for the increased driving position and better vantage point to see around.
