"What we do see, however, are what appear to be the same gorgeous 20-inch wheels found on the new DBS, a hatch-style tailgate, and some absolutely flawless proportions bound to make the upcoming Porsche Panamera look like a rolling cucumber by comparison."

I can't understand for the life of me why Porsche and Aston Martin entered the four door game. The panamera and this rapide just don't look appealing to me.

Agreed... looks like some custom shop just stretched a DB9 and added a couple doors. I'm not so sure of this whole coupe-proportioned sedan thing.

- 2006 BMW ///M5 - Silverstone, Black Perforated Leather, Aluminum Trim, Charcoal Filters removed, Resonator removed, more mods to come...
- 2006 Porsche Carrera S - Black, Black Leather, Carbon Fiber Trim, H&R Springs, 20" Champion RG-5 Wheels, PSE, Fabspeed Intake.

Car actually looks really nice...Pretty long though since I'm just use to seeing the coupes. But this is not bad at all.
