    My guess is that the shape of the car in general will be extremely close to the silhouette that came with the deposit certificate packaging.

    Nope - it will be basically what we've seen with the 'mules' with the headlights uncovered. Here is an early spy shot of the Panamera:

    They just don't change radically from the late-stage test cars because everything is pretty much set, and all they can do is throw some covering onto the body.

    The silhouette on my Macan packaging resembled the Macan's shape almost identically. The Taycan stuff looks pretty close to the mules, however, I think that the front fenders will be slightly different than what we've been seeing in testing. Also, remember that proper wheels and attributes can change the look of a car dramatically.

    For what it's worth....and this is not my list.....but others have done graphic silhouette comparos of the E body to the mule body.....and these were some of the observations:

    ·Roof line is definitely different......the front window rake is different

    ·The whole front profile of the car is has been flattened, now more ‘practical’. Lost is the very low front bonnet and the curvy high, 918-like, fender arches as well as the more pronounced hood ridges on what now appears to be a conventional hood

    ·Side-view profile of rear is definitely different

    ·The view from the rear is very different…..they’ve significantly toned down the broad shoulders over the rears, unfortunate

    ·Of course, we have a conventional B pillar and no suicides

    Nice observations.... For me it's the low hood and high fender arches which defined the look of the Mission E, and what I miss most after seeing the prototypes.

    But the prototype of the 918 was almost 1:1 to the production version.

    Besides, the Taycan is a platform car, you can add any body you like, in this case a Panamera.
    Same as the Cayenne coupé prototype, only slightly (and very strangely) higher:
