You Want to Hear A Porsche 928?

TTAC Commentator Boff says the new Porsche Panamera sounds like Ye Olde 928—which would make my previous headline seem pretty pig ignorant. He may be right. We retort, you decide.

    I was thinking the new Porshce sounded like the 928 too. I was also in awe of it when I was small. It was the summer daily driver of an airline pilot in the town were I grew up. He never drove it hard. Metallic gold, and always spotless, way before the word "detailing".

    Call me wrong - the sound is very, very similar to my vintage Porsche 911

    Ah, nothing like the sound of a man-symphony in V8 flat (out). My 740iL sounds pretty good but is way muted. By the time I hear the V8 wail (very muffled), I'm way past the speed limit and have to slow down... Perhaps I'll be able to run it down at a racetrack some time and flog it a little... heh heh.
