2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo vs. BMW M6 Gran Coupe

  • The 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo, starting price of $154,000, delivers superior features and performance when compared to the2018 BMW M6 Gran Coupe, which starts at $119,900.
  • These models have similar peak horsepower specs, but the Panamera Sport Turismo has much more torque, 567 pound-feet, than the M6 Gran Coupe, 502 pound-feet, which is why the Panamera Sport Turismo goes from 0-60 in as little as 3.4 seconds while it takes 4.1 seconds for the M6 Gran Coupe.
  • In addition to the extra power, the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo is much more efficient. Its engines range from an EPA-estimated 25 mpg combined in the V8 engine to a ridiculous 90 mpg combined in the plug-in hybrid engine. Salinas drivers who shop with the environment in mind won't enjoy the BMW M6 Gran Coupe's top efficiency specs of 17 mpg combined.
  • The Panamera Sport Turismo also has a larger fuel tank for a cruising range of at least 592.5 miles on one tank of gas, so you can spend more time enjoying the open road. With the M6 Gran Coupe and it's 359-mile cruising range, you'll spend more time watching cars fly by while you fill up at the pump.
  • The design of the Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo allows for up to 49 cubic feet of cargo room, which is great for all types of items. While the M6 Gran Coupe's trunk is large, 16.2 cubic feet, it falls way short in terms of cargo capacity.

Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo vs. RS7

2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo vs. 2018 Audi RS7

  • The Audi RS7 is more affordable than the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo, but it lags behind in comfort, tech features and performance.
  • The Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo and the Audi RS7 come with a 4.0-liter V-8 engine. However, the Audi RS7 can't match the acceleration or top speed of the Panamera.

  • Acceleration in the Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo seems to happen before you even hit the gas, so you go from 0-60 in 3.4 seconds. The RS7 can go from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds..
  • Again, the superb engineering of the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo's engines give them better efficiency specs than the Audi RS7. 
  • The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo is a sleek station wagon that handles and performs like a sports car, so with all that power drivers are still privilege to up to 49 cubic feet of cargo room, which is comparable to the 49 cubic feet of cargo room in the Audi RS7.
