A very flashy Porsche Panamera, seen near the Solona Mall in Beijing around sunset. The good Porsche was wrapped in a sun-killing shiny silver wrap, and further sexed up by a black rear wing, tinted windows, racy tires, and sporty multispoke alloys with a sliver rim. Bling!

A very flashy Porsche Cayenne, seen in the great city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province. The good Porsche is painted in shiny green and black, and prettied up considerably by a fatass body kit, race ready tires, and multi-spoke black alloys. Best of all is the unique license plate with number S0000, but sadly blue matches poorly with green.

The Porsche 918 hybrid hyper car will be launched on the China car market in early 2014 but Porsche was kind enough to prematurely post the prices on their Chinese website. Hold on, your heart. The 918 is ridiculously expensive, even for Chinese standards.

A very shiny Porsche Cayenne, seen in the Lido area in Beijing, not far from the place where we earlier met a speedy Suub. The cool Cayenne was wrapped in a high quality shiny gold wrap that is perfectly applied over the rear mirrors and bumpers. The wrapping work on the small winglets near the fog lights is especially impressive. Good Bling!
