I think if this car looked more like a sedan and less like a hatchback, it would be really nice.

Porsche dropped the ball big time.

I'm sure it looks much better in person.

Still, it should look hot in pics. It's a Porsche!

And yes, of course it will handle great and will be fast and yada, yada, yada....





Aston Martin Rapide FTW!!!!!

They nailed it in terms of design.

I think front and rear look great. It's the side that could be improved upon. I wonder how well it will handle compared to their coupes though.

Well, this Panamera is almost tied w/ the X6 for ugliest new design.

Those damn rooflines and butts are a tragedy!!!

The X6 has the best roofline in the SUV market. The front is where it's a questionable design. The Cayenne has only just recently been a respectable looking model since the facelift.

Eh, 6/10 compared to the Volante.
The front is nice because headlights are not vertical and it gives the nose a smooth look. Hood detail is also nice.

The rear is SO SO SO bad. I cant believe how fussy the lights are with the white corners. I hate every aspect of the rear right down to the exhausts. The car looks like a pig overall, doesnt look fast at all.

Man, I actually feel annoyed. The Rapide is stunning but I'd still take the Estoque over everything simply because it is so unique and doesnt resemble anything. The Rapide is still a DB9 +2 doors for me. It's nice though, but just not original.

How bout you sketch a car, scan it, then upload it. Don't knock Bangle. It's the ignorant/popular thing to do.

The profile reminds me of Bugatti prototype sedan (forgot the name) like nearly a decade old. Front looks like a C6.
