Nope, it's the world's first Personal Luxury Car, a decade before the Ford Thunderbird:

This is what Doc Hudson was originally intended to be. Guess they couldn't find an explanation for the cormorant on the hood in an all-vehicle world...

The Lincoln Continental is generally regarded as the first personal luxury car, actually. There's nothing personal about the Packard, the thing is huge and seats six broad-shouldered people with ease.

I always found the 48-50s (at least the coupes) much smaller than the whale-sized 46 and 47.

In reality they were the same cars only slightly more bulbous; the designers over at Packard added layers of sheetmetal along the sides and over the hood and fenders to make the car appear less dated and more aerodynamic. This was a cost-cutting measure to give the impression of a brand new car, which was a quickly thought up success; but the fastback body was already falling out of fashion by the turn of the decade and as such the 1951 Packard was created from scratch with a ponton body. No car maker other than Kaiser had a brand-new car for the 1951 model year which ensured its success at the time.
