My Italian partners in Florence, who are very talented designers, would agree with your statement. We often frequent this topic. Although the Panamera can be criticized for its derivative design and/or the rendering of specific design cues, overall, the Panamera possesses a serious, if not flamboyant presence. The BMW F10 550i and Panamera appeal to different market niches. (BTW - my Italian partners also share my enthusiasm for the the BMW 5GT.)
