    The V3 will be a fantastic car! With at least 600hp…and an 8 speed auto with sport exhaust. It will be a marvel. God Bless America.

    Still ain't buying one without a manual. Or, at least, a very exotic auto...

    No wagon means I'll be moving on I guess.

    So what is the Panamera's horse power ? The new CTS is suppose to have at lease 600 hp ! I don't see how the Panamrea could beat a 600 hp Cadillac CTS-V !

    Why does the automatic have to be exotic? Why is it not enough that it's effective?

    Serious question.

    Jinx,
    I agree with GM's new 8L90 that shifts faster than any DCT and handles more torque for the same amount of weight, I would rather have the 8L90. From what I read there are two fluid pumps used to increase the shift speed and full throttle. There was no mention of how fast the 8L90 would shift at part throttle, probably doesn't matter. Another big gain on the LT4 is the air temp is 150 cooler coming out of the blower at full throttle meaning less heat soak on the intercooler system and a turbulent generator in the veins for better heat transfer. I for one can't wait to get one of these. I hope GM will give my small local dealer an allocation of at least 1 next year. Axtell-Taylor in Logan, UT if one of the service reps is reading this, I have cash.
