The Ferrari F149 is now not called the Dino, eh. But who knows, we might find something else out in October at the Paris Motor Show.
I love spy shots, spy videos, spy anything for new upcoming cars. The Porsche Panamera has been a badly kept secret for a while; this uber German car, coming out in 2009, has been photographed and video taped quite a bit.
After the jump, we have 2-minute video footage of the Porsche Panamera, that shows off all the car’s lines, as well as some really nice photos. I have to say, I’m still reserving my opinion on the car – I can’t quite figure out what to make of its shape, and the fact that Porsche is now making…. gasp… sedans! But if I had the chance.. yes, I would indeed want to drive it on the autobahn.
Hope its worth it, to have Aston Martin and Porsche diving into the 4-door sedan market.

The 5th Gear guys put up a pretty interesting social experiment. They took three supercars and parked them on a busy street for 10 minutes, then counted how many people stopped and stared:
- McLaren Mercedes SLR Three Hundred Thousand Pounds!!
- Porsche Carrera GT Three Hundred Thousand Pounds!!
- Lamborghini LP640 Two Hundred Thousand Pounds!!
So who won? The counts were:
- McLaren Mercedes SLR – 19
- Porsche Carrera GT – 78
- Lamborghini LP640 – 84 people counted, numerous more just standing around and not moving
So I guess I’m buying the LP640; If I’m spending that much dough, I do want folks to envy me.
