RUF China, the Asian subsidiary of RUF Germany, unveiled an Long Wheelbase version of the Porsche Panamera at the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition.

The vehicle wears the letters RXL on the front numberplate and a simple RUF badge at the rear. From Auto.163 pictures, it seems that the conversion gives extra foot space for just two rear occupants.

The base for the project is a standard 300hp V6 Panamera which has been stretched 400mm to 5370mm total length according to RUF’s Chinese website. Kerb weight is now 1960kg, only 90kg heavier than the standard car.

I'm sure it will sell, but misses the mark somewhat - stretched Mercs and BMs carry it off much better. Confused

Amazing, they actually managed to pack in even more ugly.

Bizarrely, since the original is not a looker it does not look that much worse! therefore good effort

Wierd to stretch a car for a country where the average height is lower than the western world!

+1

If I was looking to buy a Panamera I would definitely consider both (assuming respective costs were an irrelevance).

In China the true mark of luxury is how much leg room there is in the back seats. Odd, but its how its measured. L versions just for China are not unusual
