Porsche butchered the Panamera

Prepare your eyes! WTH were they thinking?:ugh


Photos of and details about the Porsche Panamera, the company's first modern effort at creating a four-door sedan, have officially leaked all over the web and it looks exactly how we expected it to look. From what we can gather from Google Translator and Auto Telegraaf, the Panamera will first hit the shores in Panamera S and Panamera Turbo trim, each fitted with a 4.8-liter V8 putting out 400 HP and 500 HP, respectively. Both will also get Porsche's PDK 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.Though no diesel version is likely to see production, a 3.6-liter V6 option good for 300 HP and a V6-electric hybrid are in the works for sale at a later date. Given the sedan's unique look, the production numbers seem quite optimistic.

Emboldened by their success with the Cayenne SUV, Porsche is planning to sell 20,000 Panameras globally each year, with approximately 20% of these as the top-of-the-line Panamera Turbos. These sedans are going to be quite large if, as the leaked information states, the vehicle is actually 16.3 feet long and 6.3 feet wide. By comparison, a new 5-series BMW is only 15.9 feet long.

The only remotely decent angle ;)

Is it a Cayman? I don't know. Is it a Cayenne Suv? Hmm.

Eh, the more I look at it, the more it doesn't look that bad.
LOL, nice photochop! My sentiments exactly.
If they had made it a sedan instead of a hatchback, it would work.
