    Looks great, but that isn't what I would buy if I was spending $200k on a car.

    I hope to trade up to that sometime when used ones get within my range (10 years?!?!?). Apart from all the other niceties, it's the only '2-door-coupe-imaged' saloon that doesn't look stupid.

    I wonder if the price is relevant to anyone on this forum... we can all pretend like it's outrageous but truth is there are few here who would be shopping for a $200,000 sedan.

    Wonder why the six-speed auto only? Where's the love for manual? The best option for merging the lux and sport market is the SMG transmission found in some BMWs. Best of both worlds.

    Manuals will be all but gone by 2020. The heads at Porsche, Ferrari and Mercedes hav all said as much.

    I think the Panamera is better looking. There, I said it. The Panamera interior blows away the Aston's--bar none. The Rapide exterior sucks because it's just a stretched out version of Aston's sports cars. At least the Panamera design reflects the unique purpose of the car.

    FWIW, I agree with you 100%.
