    Re: Some Panamera info

    I think Vlad was hired after he did this with some input from some of us here.

    Re: Some Panamera info

    It's got the cayenne power trains which are nice but not what a porsche class leading sedan should have especially the V6.

    Hopefully RC will tell us that this is still NOT the final look.

    that front end looks like a fiat 500.... or after the car had a serious accident...

    Re: Some Panamera info

    the pic from motor authority looks really nice. I like!!

    Re: Some Panamera info

    please...after how many years of (hopefully) teasing porsche fans world wide this is whats coming...imo a ricer redo of a small lexus whatever...for me the final version has to have a totally new and unseen to date body....goodf luck with that

    Re: Some Panamera info

    The Panamera ,in it's various developmental spy pics and photoshops the past few years ,reminds me of the new Camaro :by the time it's released , it will already look like it's due for it's mid -term update .


    Re: Some Panamera info

    the motorauthority rendering looks STUNNING

    Re: Some Panamera info

    I really like it.

    Re: Some Panamera info

    you mean the Lexus GS with the 997 Turbo front bumper ?




    Re: Some Panamera info

    Can someone tell me once and for all when this car is slotted for release? This article says early 09, and my dealer says late 09 for worldwide launch???

    Most probably shown in spring 2009.

    Introduction to dealers, press early summer.

    Gradual market launch from July or September to end of 2009.

    Re: Some Panamera info

    That photoshop from MotorAuthority is by far the best look I have seen to date. If the final car ended up like that, I would be very happy.

    +1

    Hard to believe it will look that well!

    Re: Some Panamera info

    Hmm, guess nobody is too worried about the looks of the front. It seems that the rear side of the cars is what gets most people worrysome. It seems to be very hard to judge the shape right, and all the cammo makes it look like a giant floating potato. Really curious what it will look like in real life.

    Re: Some Panamera info

    Ok I think the car starts to look much better that it did on the images we had. Take a look at the model on the left. It starts to look proposeful and good proportioned. And the more important think it looks like a PORSCHE!

    Re: Some Panamera info

    I think in this photo is quite nice looking too.

    Exactly, best description yet of ALL the mules. Still the same old fugly mule, it does not look - better, purposeful, or porsche-like. I will wait to see if RC knows what he is talking about re the panamera.

    Re: Some Panamera info

    Well before the Cayenne was unveiled it looked hideous and many said just wait....however when the camo came off guess what? It was and is still - hideous. Seems like Porsche has not learned anything and we're in for the same thing with the Panamera. Just my two cents.

    Come on guys no Porsche in history can be called beautiful in the strict sense of the word.

    Think of most models from 356 to 911 to 924/944, 928,959 etc.

    The strong point of the Porsche style is that they look purposeful, solid and they grow on you and look good even after many years.
    Many Mercedes and BMW are the opposite. They look catchy at first but soon become boring.

    Re: Some Panamera info

    Sorry, that's not the way it works. Some people convince themselves to like a bad design cause it's not so shockingly bad over time and others because they are fanboys of the marque.


    928 is beautiful in person and draws a crowd and compliments. That's why I own 1. Happened first time I saw it in early 80's.

    550, 917, CGT in the right color, many different models of the 911 over the years are beautiful cars.

    959, cayenne, and this mule are just butt ugly, [beep] poor designs. Cayenne in GTS form is vastly improved but still not what Porsche is capable of.

    High point of auto design was 1930's.

    Re: Some Panamera info

    What are you talking about?!? The cammo is still on, there have not yet surfaced pictures of the Panamera without camo on the rear side.

    Re: Some Panamera info

    The car looks a bit like the 996 - especially the interior of the 996. Everything is drawn by elipses and ovals. You clearly can see that the design was drafted beginning of 2000.

    i like this one ... a lot

    Re: Some Panamera info

    The cayenne may not be the most attractive SUV out there, but it was and is very successful and the spy pics and renderings of the next generation suggest Porsche made the right changes to make the 2nd edition look pleasing and the panamera will be successful too no doubt, even if they have fecked up the rear a bit for this first model.
