Porsche Will Give Its Ugliest Model The Prettiest Body Style


This should be good.

In terms of car years, the Porsche Panamera is getting quite long in the tooth, which can only mean one thing—it’s time for an all-new model. According to a report by Automotive News, the new Panamera will make an appearance at the Paris Motor Show in October. If that’s not enough to get you hyped, the report claims that the automaker will offer the Panamera in a shooting brake variant. The Panamera isn't the prettiest, but a shooting brake variant might make it best looking model in Porsche’s lineup.

Unfortunately, as with all great things, the Panamera shooting brake most likely won’t make it to the US. In 2012, Porsche teased the idea of a shooting brake design for the Panamera with the Panamera Sport Turismo concept and the car looked a hundred times better than its sedan counterpart. Interestingly, a lot of the Sport Turismo concept’s design made its way to the Macan crossover. A new shooting brake version isn’t the only news for an all-new Panamera as Automotive News also reports that the car will utilize a new Volkswagen Group platform, which is being referred to as MSB. The platform will make the next-gen Panamera more efficient and lighter, while providing the footing for future models from perhaps Lamborghini, Bentley and even Bugatti.
