Two turbos, six cylinders to power four wheels


 2014-Porsche-Panamera-4S-03

Reese’s Puffs might be the single greatest invention since beer, the automobile or YouTube.

They successfully marry candy and breakfast in a symphony of synthesized taste that makes ordinary corn-based cereal irrelevant. This stuff gives a new meaning to “most important meal of the day.”

Putting General Mills’ chocolate salty balls aside for a moment, Porsche is another company that managed to mash the essence of being awesome and useful into one product. They call it the Panamera and you should probably take out a second mortgage to own one.

OK, that’s a bit extreme, but if you’re in the market for a luxury sedan names like BMW and Mercedes carry a lot of cache, but not this much. Yes, it may have four doors, but this Porsche is also at home at a race track.
