    Not your usual drag race - 2011 CTS-V Wagon vs. E71 X6 M vs. Porsche Panamera Turbo

    This was awesome to see. MotorTrend pitted a performance sedan, SUV, and wagon all against each other. Now, we don't want to spoil the race for you but AWD clearly plays a role. For a RWD car like the CTS-V to really show what it can do on the strip vs. AWD cars it needs drag radials and a burnout. So, it is at a disadvantage but the same disadvantage it would have on the street. Also, MotorTrend deserves commendation for actually posting ET's and traps. They aren't actual slips, but we will take it.

    I call BS, no way. It didnt even sound like they got on it, and looked they were moving slower than dirt. I say its fake.

    I do like how you see him move the seat forward, and the other guy drinks coffee.. just like what would really happen if all 3 randomly came to a stoplight Click here to enlarge

    They are performance cars. I don't think people just buy them to haul around their kids. If that was their goal, get a Mini-Van. Plus, the kids aren't always in the car.

    Who buys wagons period? It's cool they have it if you are in the market.

    The cars in stock form aren't loud, they are street legal.

    The CTS-V wagon trapped the highest, that says a lot.

    This is my exact reasoning for why an X3 M makes far more sense. What is BMW thinking? Efficient Dynamics my ass.

    CTS-V is a great cart like ZR-1 and new Mustang, but the fanboys of these three cars make everything look bad.
    look at the comments in that review, That stupid guy is comparing CTS-V sedan to Bentley Mulsanne and Aston Rapid !!!!!!!

    If we bought cars based on what some of their fanboys say none of us would drive anything.

    The Panamera Turbo is definitely in line to be my next car when I go shopping in a few years...it's just an absolute monster.

    Now that CTS-V wagon is something else...I've never been a fan of wagons, but I must say that is the ultimate sleeper. Just think about it for a second; an ultra low-volume family station wagon with 555HP and a 6-speed manual transmission...I don't think there has ever been anything like this on the market before. I honestly wouldnt be shocked if it became a real collectors item someday.

    Love that X6M, too...I appreciate performance in all forms and the X5/X6Ms/Jeep SRTS/ML63s are the performance enthusiast's dream if you absolutely need AWD with more clearance/storage than most sport sedans can provide.
