CAR (UK) - - Car Intercative -

Hav­ing owned many Porsches, I nat­u­rally was in­ter­ested in the ar­ti­cle about the new Porsche Panam­era Sport Turismo (CAR, Septem­ber). But I won­der what on earth the point of that ve­hi­cle is. It is nei­ther sports car nor es­tate car. Like many air­craft I used to fly, it is a com­pro­mise and thus does not ex­cel at any­thing. Then I re­alised that for the same £100k, one could buy an Audi Q2 and a Porsche Boxster. Then one would have a great all­road load car­rier and pos­si­bly the finest road­ster made. Cer­tainly, the com­bined strengths of those two ma­chines far out­weigh those of the cu­ri­ous Panam­era Sport Turismo. Derek Sharp
