    • Track comparison between the new 2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo and Mercedes-AMG W213 E63 S

      Auto Express got their hands on these two new super sedans and decided to do a laptime comparison. Now, it is important note the Auto Express test track is tiny and seems to be go-kart sized. Not exactly a place for big and heavy sedans to really stretch their legs.


      We know the Panamera Turbo is very heavy from a recent test. 4593 pounds does not exactly lend itself to a nimble car. Still, Porsche does an admirable job hiding the weight and delivering superb handling.

      Auto Express does not weigh the cars (seriously? you call this testing?) but says the Mercedes W213 E63 AMG S is lighter. Well, how much lighter? Where is the weight? Does it have more on the nose?

      Both are all wheel drive but the Panamera Turbo is rated at less power and torque at 550 hp / 576 lb-ft . The Mercedes-AMG E63 S on the other hands is stated to make 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. You would have to get them both on a dyno to know the true output.

      Laptimes:

      Panamera Turbo - 44.9
      Mercedes-AMG E63 S - 44.6

      Higher quality comparisons will come down the line but it is surprising to see the Mercedes take the win here.
