The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Audi S8 is the super sedan by which others are measured. The 2017 Maserati Quattroporte doesn't ruin what we always liked: beautiful lines, Ferrari heart. Thanks for that. With better looks, more efficient and powerful engines, and a less cluttered interior, the 2017 Porsche Panamera promises to be a better carn than the fun sport sedan it's always been.
