Specialized Update Enduro for 2018 - First Look - Crankworx 2017
If they made a version with 450mm stays I'd buy it.

2018 Devinci Spartan - First Look
@Primoz: I'm 188 cm and my last few bikes and current bike have had 430~ mm chainstays. I did enjoy the 440 mm chainstays on a previous bike. I think 10 mm goes a long way with chainstays. Your dead right that the rearward weight shift can cause the front to "wash out" on corners. This happens because of the lack of weight pushing down on the front wheel (obviously you know this). The situation I was attempting to describe with the rear wheel sliding is caused by having too much weight pushing the rear tyre and making it slide (when the knobs deform or the ground becomes too soft or too firm). It's the same issue. We all have different techniques to ride and I'm not suggesting that every tall person will dislike short stays but I do think that there are a large number of us who would be happy to spend our hard earned cash on a 450 or 460 mm chainstay bike if there was a manufacturer who had the balls to make one.

It's likely the super gravity version that's avaliable to sponsored riders.

2018 Devinci Spartan - First Look
@fartymarty: The multiple mold issue is solved by moving the BB rather than extending the CS. This also has minimal effect on kinematics. I'm also a supporter of longer chainstays on larger bikes, I can't speak for short or average height people but at my height and having 430mm chainstays, as soon as I move my weight lower or rearward I feel like the bloody bike is about to break into a manual. It probably annoys me the most in corners when most of my weight pushes the rear tyre causing it to drift. Getting right over the front can help but isn't always an option depending on the trail or situation. To counter the problem I end up running the rear suspension in the firmest compression setting to discourage the rearward weight shift. I've never had this problem when I was riding a bike with 440 or 450mm chainstays. I can also understand that people under 6 feet tall might have a hard time understanding the problem.
