A lot of you don't understand photography.
Both images are of the Mission E concept, but in the first one the camera angle is a little higher, whereas in the second one it's lower, and the profile of the car looks different - not much, but some of the curves are more pronounced in different ways.

A few degrees difference in height yes, but it would rather be the distance from the car. I guess they were really close and used a wide angle lens for #28 pic. Bit misguiding though, makes the car look VERY short and with the wheels very far out. Which again makes the wheels look enormous. Bit strange the wheels don’t look a bit elliptical though.

They should only use a lens that resembles the human eye IMO.

If you look at the spacing tire-wheel well you see that it's very uneven = taken very close to the car with a wide ange lense.

No, it looks like that but in fact, those are all Cross Turismo parts.
I've checked that cuz I was like you, thinking this was all Panamera.
After looking at the Cross Turismo, I realized they are the same ...

yes the stuff that looks panameraish is all camo. the underpinning is the “same” panels as the CT. and as i have said before in these posts, the representative at the official unveiling of the CT told me that what we got to see on the CT were a lot of production ready parts with some more concept oriented ideas added to be specific CT concept and not taycan or rather mission-e at the time. and obviously a taller car concept so as not to reveal the final proportions too much..... interesting tactic.

Gotta ask... won’t they be called:
Taycan (sedan)
Taycan Cross Turismo

I see several people referring to the CT as not being a Taycan...

Nah, people just call it the CT as its just easier to type. It's definitely a Taycan - but significantly taller than the four-door coupe

I know but I was more thinking what it’s officially named by Porsche.

I'm still not convinced that there will be a Taycan CROSS Turismo. Despite some Porsche comments. The prototypes looked much more like a SPORT Turismo.

Some my guess:
Taycan
Taycan Sport Turismo

And they both will be basically identical apart from the back.

I agree. Why couldn’t they just stick to race track related names? Even Daytona although that’s been taken

Rather a number, at least as an alternative. 911, 928, 944, 924, 964, 968. Keep going like that! 901 like the 911 was supposed to be called at the very start?

Cayenne = A hot spice
Panamera = Pan American
Macan = Some kind of nut?
Taycan = Some sort of very bad weather? :D
