Porsche Rips Off Taillights From 1993 RX-7 For Panamera Sport Turismo: Paris 2012 Live Shots

Jack thinks Porsche may have ripped off the Ford Taurus X with their new Panamera Sport Turismo concept. I say the taillights are a rip-off of the 1993 Mazda RX-7.

    What are the differences with regards the interior? The Panamera is (sorta kinda) an estate wagon to start with (ok, shooting brake, whatevs.) I can only assume that mangling the rear of the car so badly (I said something derogatory about Porsche, I presume I get credit for that?) allowed for some major interior enhancement ... a third set of seats? A jacuzzi? What the heck is going on back there?

    This is a much prettier ride than Panamera. I might place my order if it is diesel powered.

  • Mike Evs do suck, though. I mean, they really do.
  • Steve Biro I don’t care what brand but it needs to be a compact two-door with an ICE, traditional parallel hybrid or both. A manual transmission option would be nice but I don’t expect it - especially with a hybrid. Don’t show me an EV.
  • ToolGuy Lose a couple of cylinders, put the rest in a straight line and add a couple of turbos. Trust me.
  • ToolGuy Got no money for the Tasman, it is going to the Taxman. 🙁
  • ToolGuy They should have hired some Ford Motor Company employees. No, I'm kidding -- they should have hired some Ford Motor Company executives. 😉
