Inside prefer 6, outside prefer 6, comfort prefer 6, ergos....u see how many buttons are on the Pano - Fail...
Once switch to the acs springs, problems solved.
The thing surprised me more was the interior of cls and audi s7 look so much cheaper than 6gc.

Great written, however your comparison is not fair at the first place!
As far as look (interior and exterior), there is no doubt 6er is much better than Panamera (IMO). Regarding to handling, engine and power you have to compare GTS with 6GC Xdrive since both are AWD beside the same power. You also can compare RWD Panamera s with RWD 6GC then you will see that 6GC beats Panamera easily.
In addition, Panamera turbo and turbo s will be the competitor of M6GC
BTW, I like Porsche and respect that great German engineering and quality

I personally love the Panny's looks but my GC is truly ahead turner. The biggest fail on the Panny's, the price. For the price of my fairly loaded 650gc, I could have gotten a kinda basic Panny's 4 with no maintenance and higher insurance. Now that's a fail to me.

Just finished a Panamera GTS test drive and I wanted to write this while my thoughts are fresh and keep it simple.

Pros: NA engine, sounds nice, fun burble on deceleration, light on its feet, great grip, nice stitching on interior, solid build quality and feel, probably really holds its value!

Cons: Felt slow at times, the tech is showing its age, I don't love its look (not bad), hard to fall in love with it, feels big.

The Panamera is a great package and I see why Porsche sells so many of them. If I didn't own an M5 I feel like I would have definitely jumped to this car but I don't see it as a huge upgrade. I was really looking forward to driving the NA engine but I almost think that the M5 sounds better in some circumstances (active sound?) then even this GTS. Anyhow not much else to mention..
