Why didn't they offer this from the outset?  It looks so much better than the original.

It's kind of like the Bentayga. They made a very capable car, but made it ugly.  It's good to see this improved version now

I'd be hard pressed to look at this over a spec'd up RS6.  I know it's personal opinion, but don't see it.

agreed. But a panamera would be a size up on a RS6 wouldn't it?

I wouldn't have thought so.  RS6 is a few cm longer and wider than the current Panamera. 

Panamera is dead on in size the the RS7, which shares it's underpinnings with the 6, so I reckon they'll all play in the same circus. 

Australia needs another bonkers estate.  It's a shame the M5 estate never came here.  I'd have liked some choice as to how I was going to haul my over-sized puppy around, and the RS cars aren't type approved for towing. 

edit:  Check that...I just saw that the new gen panamera stretched itself by 30mm...and the new wagon luggage is 520L vs 565L in the RS...so i dunno.  Kinda is bigger, but not?

Wow that's really interesting.  I perceive the Panamera to be much larger.  Almost like an s class. Perhaps just because it looks like such a heavy burdensome thing.
