My old S weighs less than this 5.
The Panamera weighs all of 120lbs less than the E63.
If a standard Panamera handed your ass to you in an E, I'd say it's driver error. This is bolstered by the...

That's my understanding of it. That's how a modern S-Class has a drag co of 0.27 despite being enormous.

Cd accounts for shape and surface material. So if you take those two bricks, make sure they have the same surface and shape, but leave it so one is tiny and the other is huge, they get the same Cd.

Cd doesn't include frontal area, making it not all that meaningful. To find the drag area you have to multiply the Cd by the frontal area, and then you have a meaningful number.
