The Next Panamera Will Receive Luscious New Engines


Whether or not they'll be turbocharged is still unknown.

It may sound hard to believe, but the Porsche Panamera has been around for nearly five years, and a complete redesign is just around the corner. While we’ve been told the overall look of the second-gen model won’t be drastically different than the current car, changes under the hood will likely be more significant. Autocar is reporting that the next Panamera, due in 2017, will receive a new engine family specifically designed for its platform.

Now that Porsche is completely a part of the VW Group family, this platform, called the MSB, will also likely underpin a new Bentley at around the same time. Fortunately, the new Panamera won’t share its new V6 and V8 engines with VW or even Audi. These engines are being left solely for the automotive giant’s most exclusive brands, specifically Porsche and Bentley. Don’t expect the next Panamera and the next Audi A8 to have much in common; they’ll be built on separate platforms with different engines. After all, Porsche is a brand that clearly requires special treatment.
