UK publication paired up two of the hottest wagons on sale today for a drag race. The Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon against the Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo locked in a battle for long-roof supremacy. Which wins? Pick one.
Well, in the most important metrics—0-60 mph, 1/4-mile—the AMG takes it. Not a huge surprise considering its working with 603 horsepower to the Porsche's 550, but, the Panamera still makes an impressive showing. It's actually 0.3 seconds quicker to 100 mph, and not far behind in every other metric.
And, I've said this sort of thing before, but when cars like this face off, there are no real losers. We should be thrilled to live in a world where Mercedes-AMG and Porsche offer wagons that can keep up with supercars, so maybe we should consider ourselves the true winners here.
And in any case, Porsche has the 680-hp Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo waiting in the wings for a rematch.
