Inside the China-only RUF XL stretched Porsche Panamera
Published on January 26, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
On XX we were the very first to bring out the story of the China-only RUF XL, a Porsche Panamera stretched by 40 centimeters exclusively for the limousine-orientated Chinese car market. The story went further via Jalopnik and TTAC and has since been all over the internet.
Today we bring you the first pics of the interior and this Porsche sure loox like a comfortable place to smoke a cigar, play some kitties and tell the driver to take it easy, or to go like stink…
Clearly a high-quality conversion, RUF for sure ain’t no in-the-shed operation, anymore. Still, I am a bit disappointed by the lack of tv-screens. This needs to be improved.
Huge center console running all da way to the back. It just misses the gimmicks, now it is only a strechted Panamera and not much more. Wine-cooler? I don’t see any. Advanced controls for the stereo? Nope. Spittoon? Neither.
