Gareth Have porsche dug up ferdinand to design this one as well
Justin sedan porsche?!?!!
Jon kinda looks like a obese ferrari
Jon the porsche heritage is barely visible, someone who isn't familar with cars wouldn't recognize it as a porsche immediatly.
Franko Lovely Car.
Langley this thing is just not up to porsche standards! I'm sure it drives great and has a wonderful engine/handling but the design is just awful. I had such high hopes for a porshce 4 door sports sedan. Maybe have it look like the Austin martin 4 door. What you guys think. I think its a really bad design job.
Naeefa sexiest car eva!! so seductive.....had 2b black tho
Alex Seems like a cross between the Jaguar XF and the Ferrari F430. I think it looks awful. You can tell they didn't
really go back to the drawing board and start from scratch with this one. The back end closely resembles the
Cayenne GT while the front just looks like an elongated GT2. And for some reason, Porsche decided to add the
side vents of the IS-F.
I don't know, I guess if you took all the cars I mentioned just now and threw them into a blender, this is what
you'd get. Porsche can definitely do a 4 door sport sedan, but this is not the right body design. Performance-
wise, however, I'm sure it holds up to the same race-bred porsche handling and acceleration as all other
Does anyone know if it is a front-engine? If it is, it might handle a little better than the twitchy rear-engine
attempt at what Porsche thinks is a super car.
Langley alex, good insights. this thing is horrendous. I predict they will have to overhaul the design but fear that the long wheel base will forever make this thing ugly.
Alex agreed. When It comes down to it, I am led to believe they just tried too hard without trying at all. They took
inspiration from many different cars without trying to make it mesh together like all other Porsches.
Take the Cayman for example. Brilliant car. Wonderful power as well as handling. And to top it off, you can
even get away with a healthy dose of oversteer without going into the wall. Also, the interior is very luxurious
considering it is a $50,000 2.9 liter (265 hp) sport car. It has a wide (but short) wheel base giving it insane
handling. Finally, while there is no doubt that the Cayman took it's aesthetic inspiration from other Porsches
(boxster, 911), there is also no doubt about it doing so with the proper amount of "mesh".
The Panamera, on the other hand,had too many inspirations with absolutely no regard for mesh or styling or
anything aesthetic for that matter. Also, it has a base price of $83,000 which goes up to around $132,000
(slightly more expensive than the AWD Cayenne Turbo 4S which has, believe it or not, performance figures in
the same ballpark as the Panamera). The long wheel base is also a bad idea. It just means it is more prone to
oversteer. With a heavier car, like the Panamera, oversteer can be a deadly ingredient. Not to mention, as you
already have, it looks f***ing awful.
