Now that the last Porsche Carrera GT has rolled off the line, Porsche has been busy retooling to accommodate the new Porsche Panamera, a four-door sedan that will likely compete with vehicles such as the Mercedes CLS 55 AMG and Maserati Quattroporte. We're not so sure on the reliability of the source, but if the rumors are correct, we'll see the Porsche Panamera early next year with a possible pre-production unveiling at the Paris Motor Show this fall.

Thanks to Richard for the tip.

      You know how an image on Silly Putty gets distorted when you pull it? Well, this is what this car looks like to me...a Silly Putty version of a 911. Needless to say I don't care for the Silly-putty version of a 911.

      Affording one of these is not the question. Porsche is and has always been about two things, Performance and Aesthetics. I have no doubt they nailed the performance side of this equation, however the verdict has been handed down on the other side.

      im digging it. i always thought that porsche should have made a sedan a long time ago, way before the cayenne... but good things come to those who wait.

      Now if it has a 450hp turbo v8, itll be crazy

      With all the money saving from not having to pay overtime for the designers, if they had any designers at all, this 19 feet of Porsche should not cost too much.

      It's a shame that Porsche designers have put 0 effort in to the last 3 'new' cars they put out.

      At first glance it's not nearly as beautiful as the Aston Martin, Maserati or even the CLS. If it drives like a Porsche, however, none of this will matter. Unfortunately it will probably be a lousy value for the money like most new versions from the "most profitable" car company in the world.

      I can't afford one, kid in college, but I love it. I wonder where we can get some details on the proposed drivetrain layout.

      Well, as soon as I heard about this car, I wanted one. Now the time is nearing and my excitement growing. I love sedans but also want a sports car that looked exotic, not a Lexus, MS or Audi. I think the car looks sensational and is right up my alley. I know there are countless others that share my sentiment. If you don't like it, you probably just can't afford one.

      I can assure you, if it had a turbo v8, Porsche would be getting more than a mere 450 hp.

      Instead of retooling the Carrera GT line for this car, they should retool the Cayenne line!

      I guess I'm the only one here that thinks this is one of the uglier things to come out of Germany in recent memory. The proportions of this car just look cartoonish.

      Either Porsche have been pulling wool over the eyes of at least one major tier 1 supplier or this is baloney.
