More coupe-like in appearance, yet lighter and still somewhat awkward looking.
It may sound somewhat hard to believe, but the Porsche Panamera has been around since 2009. It has since been given a facelift, but time and fresh competition never stop. Therefore, Porsche will answer to both sometime in 2016 when it launches its all-new, second generation Panamera. Our spy photographers recently snapped several images of a prototype testing alongside both the original model and the facelifted, current version.
Although it may look fairly similar styling wise, the new Panamera is based on a new platform that’s much lighter than the existing one. Sources claim both V6 and V8 engines will be offered, along with the eventual hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants. Rear- and all-wheel-drive will once again be on the table. What we can tell from these spy shots is that the new Panamera will feature coupe-like styling, thus giving it a more elegant overall appearance. Sometime after its launch, Porsche will also reveal a shooting brake variant that was previewed by the Sport Turismo concept a while back. Also possible is a two-door coupe that could serve as a successor to the old 928.
