Porsche Panamera shows its true value only on highways on rainy days

Panamera turbo

Running Panamera in the rain

The other day I had the opportunity to drive on the highway in Panamera in the rain. And while runningTsukatsu, Panamera's running is stable..."I thought. The seams on the highway weren't scary at all, and I felt solid with four-wheel drive, and it was amazing.

I ran the Hanshin Expressway No. 3 Kobe Line, so I think that it is a highway with a lot of traffic from the usual, and it is unlikely to run 100 km / h,So far, when I ran on the Tomei Expressway or the Chugoku Expressway in Panamera with heavy rain, nothing happened and I wasn't really scared.(Although I was careful about the puddle, I ran)

A few years ago, when I went to Fuji Speedway at the end of March, the pass was slightly frozen due to heavy snow outside the season, but Panamera had no problem if I ran slowly. On the other hand, my husband, Boxter, who was running in front of me, seemed to be afraid of slipping when he was careless.

The best thing isPorsche driving school (Porsche Track Experience) participated in Panamera in heavy rainIt is. Since I am a rain woman who admits to myself and others, it is almost always raining or storming at each event, but the first driving school that I participated with excitement was also rainy. Or rather it was heavy rain (bomb)

In the curriculum at that time,Full braking from full acceleration","Steady circle turning with PSM turned offI experienced a curriculum such as.

In heavy rain,It is quite scary to fully accelerate the Panamera Turbo by stepping on the accelerator, the body was pressed against the seat, the tire floated for a moment,It was an acceleration that even felt the fear of clenching my teeth unintentionally, but when I applied the full brake all at once, I was surprised at the rattling noise and the stopping of the car body without any deviation.

In addition, even after the vehicle was running at full brakes and the vehicle speed dropped, even in the practice of avoiding obstacles in front of me, I was able to operate the steering wheel swiftly without slipping. "Panamera has terrible performance than I thought that the car could stop and operate like this in such a heavy rainI realized that at that time.

In a steady circular turn with PSM turned off, the grip is effective at first, so you can turn without problems,If you step on the accelerator and increase the speed, it will gradually become understeer, and if you release the accelerator there you will spinI felt that.

However, in the case of Panamera, stepping on the accelerator(2nd speed for Panamera)However, understeer did not come out easily, and the instructor also said ``After all Panamera has a sense of stability. It's 4WD, so it's hard to spin.He said."

Eventually I managed to spin up, but "Will it be the first time to spin for the first time...!I was surprised.

After that experience,A sense of security and confidence that Panamera has ridiculous performanceTogether, it makes it more interesting to ride Panamera, and on the contrary, I feel that driving has become safer than before.

In the future, when children get their licenses, I don't really want to get in a good car from the beginning(I don't want that to be taken for granted)However, considering safety and performance, I think it would be safer if I had been riding a Porsche or a German car when I was a beginner.

Panamera on a rainy day my husband thinks

Regarding the running of Panamera on a rainy day, my husband,

Panamera in a nutshellAll-weather super fast tourerYana. There are cars that are simply easier than this, but I think that the balance between speed and stability is at an extremely high level.
Well,Porsche has high running performance in all car models, but among them, stability is perfectI guess
I bought Porsche,I want you to go to the driving school because it's all rightI think. Then, try spinning in a harsh environment and experience how amazing the performance is.

they said. So that's it…!

In fact,Production of 911 Cabriolet (992) is decided,I was getting more and more likely to come to my house more than I expected. At that time, I say goodbye to Panamera, but I am very grateful to Panamera for giving me so many wonderful experiences.

More than anything,I was not interested in cars at all, and Panamera gave me the opportunity to become interested in cars.However, the blog URL is "panamera" instead of "porsche", so Panamera really has a lot of feelings.

Given that I'll have a baby next month and go home for a while, maybe I can ride Panamera only a few more times. It's been raining for a while from here on, but I'd like to take care of it once and ride carefully.
