Porsche has provided a sneak peak of its next generation Panamera by releasing a teaser image, sketch and a video showing the sport sedan in development. Porsche will unveil the Panamera on June 28, in advance of its formal debut in October at the Paris Motor Show.
The teaser image, which shows a portion of the rear of the vehicle, includes LED taillights that appear to be inspired by the Panamera Sport Turismo concept which was revealed at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
Judging from spy pictures that we have seen, we expect that the front end will also take its design cues from the Panamera Sport Turismo with redesigned LED headlights, fog lights and a sleeker front fascia.
Built on top of Porsche’s new MSB platform, the luxury sedan will shed 90 kg and have a longer wheelbase than its predecessor. Inside, reports have said that the new Panamera will feature a 12-inch display in the center cockpit and capacitive buttons like those found in the new Cayenne.
For the powertrain, the 2017 Panamera is expected to offer new V6 and V8 turbocharged engines, later to be joined by a plug-in hybrid version.
Porsche has yet to make a formal announcement on any additional Panemera body styles but we’re hearing that a shooting break variation will follow early next year.
