I saw a matte black vinyl-wrapped Rolls in Beverly Hills last week. Silly.

I did see a panamera "in the wild" the other day... wedged bewteen two mom-mobiles at a supermarket parking lot. I suppose it's just a car.

We don't see many exciting cars in this part of the country thanks to the short summers, but I did see the Panamera and an IS-F (Nick's favorite car of all time) last night. Nothing terribly special, other than being somewhat rare-ish (for now)

Saw a Panamera a few weeks ago when our office went out to lunch. The interior looks great but it's still a goofy looking car, even in person. The Porsche dude in our office loves it, though.

My brother test drove one and raves about it. Of course, he's a little nuts. And he is a new (Orange) Cayman owner, so there you go. Fanboi-itus can't be helped in that situation.

Not sure this counts as notable, but saw this at lunch today.

Strangely enough, I saw one of those last time I was in DC, but it was silver. If I recall correctly, it was also automatic.

If I didn't have an Atom, I'd get a Vanwall 58:



Yeah, it is British, not French.
