Not feeling the rear. Looks too much like an elongated hatch.

i feel ghey for saying it, but i kinda like the front and profile...UNTIL I see the back...that classic 911 rounded/sloped rear does not belong on a sedan. PERIOD.

there were so many cool sketches and photoshops of what this car could be, and this is the best Porsche could come up with?

I'm really a big fan of Porsches since I was a kid,and this Panamera is really scaring me. Prototype or not it looks like it's going to be defigurated

I think people are flipping out over nothing. Once the camoflauge comes off, it'll look just fine. Maybe not Carrera GT good, but about as good as one would expect a 4 door sport sedan from Porsche would look.

I agree... lots of cry babies in here. If you really look at the car it does look like the photo below... you have to look past the camouflage... the design is the same. There's a ton of camo on that car; so you really have to know what it is you're looking at. Like for example the rear end photo. Anyone with a good eye will see where the high-gloss paint ends and the camo rear picks up under the right tail light. It's pretty obvious looking at the white cars reflection in the green paint. 80% of the rear end is camo.

From Top Gear...

Take a look at what's set to be one of the most controversial cars of the decade - Porsche's long-awaited Panamera.

These renderings, commissioned for the Bulgarian edition of Top Gear magazine, give us the best idea yet of what the likely 'love it or hate it' coupe-like four-door will look like.

The last of the four pictures is Porsche's official sketch of the Panamera from a couple of years back, and you can see that, as expected, the production car will get taller and roomier on the inside while losing the caricatured low-slung profile.

Our best guess is that the Panamera will be officially unveiled at the Geneva show in 2009, becoming an obvious rival to the Maserati Quattroporte, Mercedes CLS and Aston's planned Rapide.

As you can see from the pics, the engine's up front and there's a large rear hatch with, we expect, a retractable spoiler. We know that the Panamera will be rear-wheel drive, but there's nothing official from Porsche yet on what'll be providing the power.

However, rumours suggest the Panamera will get three different engines, ranging from a 300bhp V6 to a twin-turbo V8 with more than 500bhp.

Porsche has hinted at the possibility of a hybrid model, but that'll likely arrive later than 2009, when the first Panameras are due to hit the market.

That rear glass looks so bubbly. Reminds me of the Pacer...I think? The one that Wayne and Garth drove and also Marge Simpson's highschool car?
