Porsche is reportedly developing a long-wheelbase Panamera, but Ruf has beat them to the punch by introducing this XL variant in China.

Measuring 5370mm long, the model has an extended platform, wider B-pillars and longer rear doors. Thanks to these tweaks, the wheelbase spans 3320mm which is an increase of 400mm (15.7 inches).

To help offset the additional weight, the 4.8-liter V8 engine has been upgraded to produce 420 PS (309 kW / 414 hp) and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft) of torque - an increase 20 PS (15 kW / 20 hp) and 10 Nm (7 lb-ft).
