2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo vs. 2018 Bentley Continental GT

The 2018 Bentley Continental GT is one of the finest automobiles ever produced. Its acceleration, W12 power and interior as lavish as a palatial palace makes it a car many dreams about but few can afford. It faces off against the Porsche Panamera Turbo, an incredibly powerful vehicle with an opulent interior of its own, wide assortment of engines, and unparalleled performance. Which of them should you own?

Design & Style

The Porsche Panamera Turbo is ultra-sleek, with smooth, elegant curves which are aerodynamic. Gorgeous chrome is present on the exterior, with LEDs and taillights that wrap around it. The dashboard within the cabin is vertically designed, which extends to a consoled which is a centralized and high mount. Whereas many of its rivals have abandoned the gear lever, the Panamera continues to use it. The Bentley Continental GT displays a traditional grand tourer look. Its headlights have been rounded, with a brighter mesh and fascia which has been lowered. The Bentley is boxier than the Panamera, and the haunches in the rear are well pronounced. The interior is truly fit for royalty, with smooth leather hide, diamond patterns, colors which contrast and smooth and shiny metal.

Technology & Safety

The Bentley Continental GT has a robust design, but incredibly, despite its extremely high price tag, is lacking in many of the safety features which are standard on other high-end vehicles. Drivers will be protected by roll bars which pop up, a camera in the rearview, and assortment of airbags. Within the interior passengers can expect DVD navigation, infotainment with touch screens that are eight inches, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support, and leather upholstery and climate control. The Porsche Panamera has a much wider range of safety devices, such as assistance with parking, cruise and lane control, self-driving, all-wheel drive, a camera for the rear view, and thermal imaging to identify pedestrians and animals. Within the interior, its infotainment is top of the line, with larger touchscreens than the Bentley, Apple CarPlay, navigational system, leather upholstery and parking sensors.


The Porsche Panamera comes in multiple variants, with the Turbo being the most powerful. It is equipped with a V8, 4 cylinder engines that can produce up to 680 horsepower with 626 pounds of torque. The Bentley Continental GT is also extremely powerful, with its 6 liters, a W12 turbocharged engine capable of producing 568 horsepower. It can reach sixty miles per hour in about 4 seconds and has a max speed of almost 200 mph.

The Bottom Line

The Bentley is luxurious, powerful and fast, which is why safety is so important. It is unacceptable that a car with its price tags lacks many of the safety features which are standard in cars that cost much less, so this alone makes the Porsche Panamera Turbo the winner.
