just a little fun this Fall..

the other black Panamera is a 2014 GTS that is almost the same looking as mine, which a friend of mine bought.

Speaking of cars in the background, is that a Pegueot 205 on the left there?

You organize meets for those four door Porsches in there? Here those just cars and only sportscar Porsches meet.

Yeah, we've been trying to get some Panameras together. This is the most I've seen in one place before (we actually had 5 at one point).

I just started a regional Panamera group on facebook. Hopefully we'll have more together this summer.

4 cars, 4 different fog light configuration?
Yup! Panameras had more options available to them than any other Porsche at the time. Plus, the gray car has a full body kit, so that's entirely different.

The white car has the 'SportDesign' bumper. The GTS & Turbo cars (if the SportDesign bumper is not chosen) have different bumpers from the lower trims, and the bumpers also changed for all trims when the car was refreshed. So we have three pre-refresh cars in this photo and one post-refresh (mine).

The yellow car has the stock non-Turbo pre-refresh bumper, but with an added lower lip.
The gray car would have had the same bumper as the yellow car (unless it had the SportDesign bumper), but it now has the custom kit.
The white car would have had the pre-refresh Turbo bumper, but it was opened with a SportDesign bumper instead.
The black car (mine) has the stock Turbo post-refresh bumper.

Technically there are six different factory bumpers (three pre-refresh and three post-refresh (non-Turbo, Turbo, SportDesign for each)), but the SportDesign bumper looks the same for all, outside of a different shape to fit the head light updates.

Now you know :D

got out to an event this weekend.. soooo nice to have some things going again, even if it means being outside and wearing a mask for several hours and glasses fogging up.

it's never been on. These are reliable.. just very expensive. My last 5 series was not reliable at all.. and it was still expensive. The Porsche is better :D

more space than my e60 and f10 5 series that I've owned. A tall person can be comfortable in the front and back at the same time, or we can fit rear-facing child car seats in the back without moving the front seats forward for most things. Most people have inches of room in front of their knees. And of course, if you really want, you can look for an Executive version and get 6" more wheel base with more rear interior room.
