Porsche Panamera Turbo S – The Smoking Tire

The 2012 Porsche Panamera Turbo S has two turbos, 550HP, and AWD. It has launch control. It reaches 60MPH in 3.3 seconds and can go 190MPH. It also costs $190,000.

To find out if it’s worth it, Matt Farah drives it to Yosemite National Park, accidentally finding roads better than most race tracks. Then he drives to the El Mirage dry lake bed, to find out just how fast it will go.

Bidding on a Pan S Turbo 2013 model with 1400 miles OMG is this car fast,blows my AMG E55 , away with ease and is actually liveable unlike my 77 930 turbo OMG is this fun or what,125 feels like 60 ,great trans, sport mode and a quick dump OMG 150 at ease. This is a machine and at 4000 plus it’s effortless to 150+ and the S OMG another 50HP not the greatest looking car but it grows on you. This thing is a Freight Train !!!!! Porsche got this thing right ! the Sum of the pieces speaks Volums OMG 3.3 seconds ouch this things FAST.

  22. Break in periods on turbos will burn oil until the pistons "Seat" and this is a press car…My 650I had to have oil every month until the turbo break in period ended and now it is fine. That’s why I have ordered a Panny Turbo S!

  29. This video pretty much delivered all of my favorite aspects of a youtube video.

You rock buddy and I am incredibly jealous of your foxbody. Please give me a ride through Mulholland

  34. I think it doesnt burn oil that fast… 

    What ever.. this car is amazing
    Its really amazing

  35. very good informative video, pity you didn’t get the waterfall shot. It looked like you drove past some nice trout streams on the way..would have been tempted to stop and cast a fly!

  36. I have a Panamera Turbo S and traded a 2012 650i in for it, a Super Car upgrade…best day of my life…Both car’s Twin Turbos will burn a quart of oil every 4-6 k miles up to 12k miles in order to break them in..just a German Engineering cue because they know things! After that they "seat" and magically last forever at normal oil usage. Ain’t that some shit!    Damn!     Asians are emotional and hardworking copy cats. Americans are Union..sad. Germans have a sense of "pride" that makes them the best car makers in the world and Porsche the best of all. I am an American and I’ll drive a Porsche..forever! Yes I am wearing a Lexus hat..I was dumber when I was younger. He’s breathing heavy because it is scary fast to him. Launch mode is scary to me.  I have a backup camera and heated and cooled seats front and rear and the triple Blackout no chrome/stainless sport edition with white gauges and red seat belts! Triple Black with Black Turbo wheels is the best combo for this car! Mine is Darth Vader! The Burmester, blue paint and ceramics are $14.000 of useless for me.  Yes, I am happy!

  37. Really well done video. Actually have a reason to road trip to Yellowstone now!

  38. Oh . Only $190 grand!? I’ll just got get my purse.

  44. best looking porsche, i have only seen like one of those in my city, they look very nice, but very expensive. wich may be why there is only one in my city.

  46. Sir, what advantages does this automobile have over say, a locomotive, which I could also afford?

  47. U guys don’t know what a Porsche is supposed to be
