Two turbos, six cylinders to power four wheels


 2014-Porsche-Panamera-4S-03

Reese’s Puffs might be the single greatest invention since beer, the automobile or YouTube.

They successfully marry candy and breakfast in a symphony of synthesized taste that makes ordinary corn-based cereal irrelevant. This stuff gives a new meaning to “most important meal of the day.”

Putting General Mills’ chocolate salty balls aside for a moment, Porsche is another company that managed to mash the essence of being awesome and useful into one product. They call it the Panamera and you should probably take out a second mortgage to own one.

OK, that’s a bit extreme, but if you’re in the market for a luxury sedan names like BMW and Mercedes carry a lot of cache, but not this much. Yes, it may have four doors, but this Porsche is also at home at a race track.

ruf_porsche_panamera_xl_3.jpg

RUF, known for their amazing Porsche creations, looks to have beaten Porsche at creating the rumored long-wheelbase Panamera for the Chinese market.

The tuning specialist decided to take matters into their own hands, creating the Panamera XL, a 211.4-inch long Panamera aimed at the higher-end Chinese market for those who wish to be chauffeured around in true style. The Panamera’s wheelbase has been extended 15.7-inches making it 130.7-inches and the result is one comfortable business lounge for the Chinese fortunate enough to own one.

It comes at a price though, as the stretched Panamera now weighs in at an astonishing 4,321-lbs. It’s still powered by the V8 engine with 414-hp and 376 lb-ft of torque.
