There were a couple of cars from Renault with that layout, 4CV the Dauphine. So definitely not the first. But which was the first, 4CV?

How about this?
Instead of having 4 doors, porsche can come out with Suicide doors like the one in the Mazda RX-8.
I like the new Porsche Panamera! How many doors....er.. never mind.

nice pictures highwayblaze. the blue panamera looks much better than the black one xcygon. it looks like the blue one is an S or turbo the black on is a standard one. this is the way i would diiferenciate it purely on the basis of the 911.

Yuck. Absolutely bloated and ugly looking........ nowhere near the design flair of the CLS....... and I really hope those rear lights on the test car are not the final shape.......

The rear half portion of the car reminds me of the Infiniti G35 Sedan. Have been seeing these pics on the web for a long time now, but never really liked it. I believe that Panamera will enter the market just like the Cayenne. People might not like it in the begining but it will gain a place over the time.

Another car, with the same Porsche Design Gene. The car looks good, but hell, does all the Porsche design have the same conical front end, with slight changes to the headlamps. Panamera surely proves, what my friends Car Designing Prof once told him." Considering the current breeds of cars designed by Porsche, it seems like their designing innovation is revolving around the their standard patern".
