Default 2010 Porsche Panamera

It looks better from the back. :) Didn't think I'd say that...

Personally I think that there's something not right about this design. I tries so hard to put all those Caymann#/Boxster elements with some 911 on that huge body, and somehow the final product can't convince me. So far, I'd take a Maserati Quattroporte anyday, later a AM Rapide or the QP.

...or the Lambo Estoque.

Anyway, I think I like it more than I thought I would.

OMG, what a huge surprise! I wasn't expecting this at all!!!*

*sorry for the BS

To be fair though, the rear lights and chrome strip are surprises. Those lights look quite good and help disguise the blobby proportions at the rear.

EDIT: The rear lights actually remind me of this in a weird way lol..

The Porsche 'style' only works on sports cars like the 911, Cayman and Boxster IMO. The Panamera just looks like a streched 911, whereas IMO they should have designed it from the ground up and made it totally different in design to other Porsches.

It should NOT have looked like a 911 in any way shape nor form. Porsche's design laziness is sickening.

Only those people who think that a Porsche has to look like a 911 and fell for a VW Toaureg in 911 clothing being a true Porsche. They will fall for this as well.

The Jaguar XJ will kill it. The Maserati is gorgeous. A BMW M7 would eat it alive. Hello BMW???

Dudes, why do we think Porsche as 5 diferent cars in their Portffolio???? it is in fact only one

THE 911 coupe, cabrio, 911 4x4, 911 sedan, 911 shortbase, now only the mini-911 is missing....and a 911 people carrier would be kind of cool. lol

The 911 is a beautifull car, a legend, but for f... sake would you please design something diferent?????wheres the surprise???? always the same sh.. diferent color, whats the point??
Personally, I cant wait for the Aston Rapide and the new Mercedes CLS to come in cause im sure they will look much better (although, i think aston will do the same thing as Porsche.....a DB9 with 4doors), and the quatroporte already looks better than the ''fat-ass''
