This weird blue car which looks like a stretched 997 Porsche 911 with four doors is a test mule for Porsche’s new Grand Tourer car, the Porsche Panamera, set to be launched in a few years time perhaps as a 2009 model.

The front engined rear wheel drive car will be built exclusively by Porsche in it’s Leipzig plant in Germany, with no current platform sharing plans with it’s Volkswagen and Audi friends. Engines will come from Porsche’s plant in Stuttgart, while bodies and paint will be finished at Volkswagen AG’s Hanover plant.

The 2009 Porsche Panamera will go against more established Grand Tourers like the Bentley Continental GT, the BMW M6, the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti and the upcoming Aston Martin Rapide.
