    Re: Audi does it better ?

    I actually like the Panamera much better in real life than on photos but what happens in real life is that it looks much bigger than on photos. Weird.

    The Audi is actually very nice but simplicity and money don't always match.

    Look at these two Rolex Daytona watches. One is "simple", the other one "special".

    That Audi's rear reminds me of the Accord Crosstour

     

    Then, maybe you like this one better ?! Smiley

    The ugliest rear so far in my opinion, even worse than the Panamera rear.

     In black it is not so ugly - but in light colors - very ugly!

    " In black it is not so ugly - but in light colors - very ugly!  "    - whenever that is stated , it's ... ugly . Recall those same words repeatedly  written about  the Ferrari California .

    Re: Audi does it better ?

    I am no automobile designer, but the BMW pics above I think illustrate how well the Panamera designers handle the rear proportions and slope into the rear bumper.  The BMW is awkward and out of proportion because its designers have remained committed to a squared off, traditional rear design.  That consequently requires big taillights, a ridiculous spoiler, a massive bumper, and a  "butt in the air" look.    With a more sloped, rounded off design like the Panamera,  the roofline from front to back flows better, the taillights are more proportional, and the rear of the car sits lower and more pleasingly on the road. 


    Re: Audi does it better ?

    Actually the new A7 seems to be the better comparison to the Panamera. I personally find the A7's rear fresher and more modern compared to the Pana. The Panamera is trapped in the design philosophy of the 997, very round and soft. I think Porsche must rather sooner than later leave this "baroque" 911  design and become more "edgy".  I get tired about the same design over and over!Smiley

     Yup, the Panamera and 5GT 4 door humped- back hatchbacks  pale in comparison to how such a layout should look when done right :

     That Rolex was even harder to look at than the 5 GT.

    Re: Audi does it better ?

    I can't say it is perfect but despite the "sad look", it is actually pretty good. It "fits" the rest of the car and looks better than the BMW GT. I would however loose that "sad look" of the rear (see photo)

     That rear end looks like it should be on a Renault.

    With normal wheels, instead of these over-sized concept car ones, it will look even more ordinary and not worth a second glance.
