SPIED: Porsche Panamera Facelift Gets A Workout At The 'Ring

Spy Shots / Comments

Both the Panamera and the Panamera Turbo flexed their muscles.

Porsche is hard at work getting its next-generation vehicles ready for the road, and while most of us are eagerly awaiting the all-new 911 GT3 RS, Stuttgart's premier automaker has a lot more in the works. We've been spotting prototypes of the German automaker's new Panamera over the past few months, with the most recent revealing the interior and a grainy representation of the car's final design. From what we can see, the Panamera is about to get a lot prettier and more aggressive, and now we have new spy shots that show the car will be quite capable too.

The first batch of images you see here is of the Panamera Turbo, as evidenced by the quad-exit exhaust setup. It appears as if the cool out-ward extending adaptive rear spoiler will be carried over to the facelifted model, improving downforce and upping the drama for the fastest version of the luxury Porker. A more aggressive rear fascia is evident too, along with a sleeker front end design. Our only concern with the design is that this innovative new aero appendage on the rear looks a little awkward, but if Porsche is fitting it, you can be sure that it will have a real effect on the car.

Moving onto the regular Panamera, we see that this model doesn't need the enormous brakes of the Turbo, nor its outward-opening wing, using a relatively standard adaptive rear spoiler instead. We can also see that it will not be fitted with the tinted/smoked taillights of the Turbo. Instead, it appears that a cherry red aesthetic will help set it apart. Naturally, this could just be an incidental detail borne from the need to cover the taillights in whatever tape or vinyl is available, but whatever the case, we'll have to wait some time before we know all the facts and figures as the Panamera is only expected to break cover in 2023 and will launch as a 2024 model.
