BTW I don't like the Panamera in terms of exterior design. I'd choose the M5 in a heartbeat. A bit biased I know....
Agility is not solely based on weight factor. Design of the vehicle performance in terms of agility is based on multiple variables such as how the vehicle weight transfers during cornering/acceleration, how steering matches the vehicle characteristics, tires, suspension settings, list goes on. Although there hasn't been any reviews of them, according to past traditions, I'm pretty sure BMW will take the agility factor. 50 pounds will hardly justify the nimble-ness of a vehicle anyway.
