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.
