Power.

Can you ever have enough? That's a question our predecessors spent a great deal of time discussing during the bad old days of the 1980s. These days, we Motor Trend scribes are often asking the opposite. Can a car have too much power? More than 99 percent of the time, the answer is hell, no -- the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta might be the world's single, overpowered example -- but as the months and years roll on by, the embarrassment of riches that constitutes a comparison test like this one is, well, totally embarrassing. Allow me to illustrate my point: We have three four-door sedans that make 1657 horsepower combined. For the sake of hyperbole, that's more power than a 1200-hp Bugatti Veyron Super Sport combined with the 455-hp Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. And we asked Porsche for the even more potent Panamera Turbo S, but that 570-hp monster wasn't revealed (in Tokyo, then Los Angeles) until one week after we concluded this especially power-dense test. (MT writer Mike Febbo wanted to name it "Menage a Torque.")
