I can’t wait for this…

The Porsche Panamera. Porsche’s 4-door saloon has had something of a stop-start development program. Initially I think it was intended to be a replacement for the 928. The economic climate of the early 1990s saw Porsche halt development – I think Porsche had some serious financial troubles of its own at the time. Now I think Porsche are one of (if not the) most profitable car companies in the world and they can afford to expand into new niche markets.

I’m not sure why the Porsche appeals as much as it does. The pictures in this week’s Autocar suggest that it is a handsome thing; long, low and sleek. Given Porsche’s reputation you can be sure it will be great to drive. I’d love to get my hands on one.
