1) History of purchase
About car selection of own car
When looking back on my favorite car career this time "The first half of my life was Honda, especially the VTEC engine I stuck"I remembered that.
After leaving Honda, it took over a German car by accident. First of all, regarding Audi cars,Sparkle of interior and exterior lighting"And about BMW M3 sedan,"Blister fender and power dome ridiculous designIn love with, I remember it as if I bought it.
And since when did the number of acquaintances who got on German cars increased, and I became interested in nature and German cars, but "It is fast and cool, the instrument panel is beautiful"The judgment axis in choosing a car has not changed consistently since Honda Prelude.
- Why did you start to get interested in Porsche?
As dusk of a certain day, he runs hardType 991 911 Carrera 4I saw him. I remembered the impact and impression of the 911 style beauty and the splendor of the tail lamp, as if struck by lightning at that time, "Is there any way I can not accept Porsche at my house?"I began to be conscious of it.
- Why did you choose Panamera among Porsche
The reason for becoming strongly interested in Porsche cars is "991 type 911 Carrera 4" as mentioned above(I thought the view of the rear was a breathtaking beauty, especially with a wonderful design in all directions), When you purchase 911, another one car is needed for a full ride for four people.
Currently, since there are a lot of difficulties involved in the two-car system, it is about time when interest came away from Porsche, "It is impossible unless it is impossible for children to grow and leave home". In a magazine or something "971 The design of Panamera is 991 type 911 likeKnowing that,
"971 Panamera is possibly enormously cool?! No, it is insanely cool !! Moreover, 4 people are on board !!!"
I thought, actively began to consider purchasing.
- What is the deciding factor for Panamera 4S
By switching from the BMW M3 sedan, from a power balance perspective"Panamera" "Panamera 4" "Panamera 4S"We examined from among the three models.
Hokkaido I live in is snowy country, but recent car is wise guy, I did not think that four wheel drive is essential.(It was a snow street like a FR M 3 sedan, too)
So, as a matter of course, when trying to get an estimate from Panamera of the lowest price FR,There are few people who purchase here (Panamera in FR) (nectar)In fact, FR felt a nuance that I would ask you (laugh)
Even IThere is also no reason to be concerned about the FR model to that extentI decided to compare and consider Panamera 4 and Panamera 4S after all.
- High-gloss black interior package
For Panamera 4 and Panamera 4S, the standard equipment is of course different, but if you add options with the aim of increasing costs, you can have almost the same equipment.
However,As for "high gloss black interior package", it can be selected with Panamera 4, it can not be selected for Panamera 4Swas.(Although it is displayed as selectable even in 4S in the catalog, there is no setting in the configurator, it is still unselectable if you check with the person in charge.) You can also select it in the turbo model)As a person who had thought of either "interior as black or carbon"
"Why Panamera 4 and Panamera Turbo can choose high-gloss black interior package,Panamera 4S only I can not doOf Is Panamera 4s the only gangster ...? "
Although it caught somewhat ... But even if you choose either Panamera 4 or Panamera 4S, I think the rate-determining will be its power performance, "In the interior, you can choose Black for Panamera 4, Carbon for Panamera 4S"We studied in the standing position.
And finally I chose Panamera 4S, but the reason is "If you choose a Panamera that is lower than the horsepower and torque of the BMW M3 sedan, will you feel unsatisfactory as a relative feeling?"Because I thought that.
It is enough to consider the horsepower and torque of Panamera 4 as usual, and there was nothing to feel power shortage by test drive, but perhaps there was a longing for the "S" emblem as a feeling.

- Why was this option, spec?
Originally we were estimating 4S for the purpose of ordering,An individual close to the order is in the Porsche Japan storage vehicleI finally got a proposal to buy that vehicle.
Although it was not exactly the same as the planned order vehicle, it was expected that the important option of "I really wanted to keep this ..." was firmly incorporated, that the missing equipment could also be roughly changed, and the number We added that we can deliver cars in a week and made decisions. By the way,
"Charara White Metallic" "Saddle Brown / Luxor Beige" "LED Matrix Headlight (Including PDLS puls)" "Comfort Access" "Sports Chrono Package" "4 Zone Automatic Climate Control" "Carbon Interior Package"
was. In addition, I planned to add ambient light,Panamera in storage car is not equipped and can not be retrofittedBecause it was thing, eventually I gave up.
In addition, the stored vehicle Panamera had many options that were not originally supposed. Speaking of surplus, I am rude, but ...There will be something useful if attached"I was convinced myself and bought it. About the evaluation of actual options after delivery, we will describe it later.
After all, with the prediction that there is no big difference between MY 2018 and MY 2019 in the planned order vehicle "minus" Ambient light "plus" alpha (there is considerably (^ _ ^;) "), we have reached purchase of stored vehicles It was.
