Absolutely gorgeous. Would sell the M3 and my oldest child for it.

Funny you say that. Very true. I will give the looks though to the BMW, I think it's stellar but with that logic, your right, I bet the P is still the better drivers car.

For the money I would mosey right on over to Porsche and drive off in a GT3.
Neither the Panamera Turbo or the GT3 are comparable in price range. You can have a well optioned M8GC for 160k. a similar optioned Panamera Turbo would be upwards of 190-200k. GT3 is over 200k, 2 doors, and a purpose built racecar.

The M8GC has a major power advantage over the Panamera Turbo, but nod to the Panamera on instrument cluster, transmission, and braking. I still cannot get behind the Live Cockpit. It almost kills the entire car for me, and why I decided to get a 2019 F90 vs a 2020
The purpose for me having the Panamera turbo is because I have a family with 2 babies ( 2 years old, and one 11 months). I need a four door car that I can enjoy driving and serve the needed. I can get a GT3 but it might just sit in the garage forever.

Therefore my choice will be only M8GC or Panamera turbo or GTS( the power is good enough for me). And I am never a fan of Mercedes or Audi.

agree with you. point is the M8GC in comparable trim will be 20k-30k less than a Panamera Turbo, and have a major power advantage.

Does anyone know when the ordering will open for the M8 GC comp? I will order my own to replace my M6GC. I periodically looked for a new M5 to replace my M6 but just was not compelled by the specs on dealer lots.
