Porsche's next-gen Panamera V6 and Turbo spotted on test

Porsche's next-gen Panamera V6 and Turbo spotted on test

The second generation of the Porsche Panamera has been spied testing near Weissach, Germany. The test mules of both the standard V6 and the powerful Turbo were sighted taking rounds back to back.

If one looks closely beyond the pseudo headlamps and tail lamps, one can see the redesigned car, which still has the familiar styling of the current model. However, this successor still looks better than the car it will replace. The standard car (one in black) will get a revamped fascia with evolutionary headlights and LED turn indicators. Apart from the sculpted hood, the front fender vents and door mounted ORVMs are also tweaked. The aerodynamic car gets a sportier roofline, muscular rear fenders and a sporty dual exhaust system.

In the Turbo (blue car), most of the components from the standard version are designed to look sportier. It comes paired with a high performance braking system and a four-tailpipe exhaust system. The former system uses brake calipers painted in yellow just to give it a sporty appeal. Both these variants essentially make up for a sleek and purposeful machine that has now become lighter and even more agile. All of this, thanks to the brand's new MSB platform that incorporates the use of aluminium, lightweight composites and high-strength steel.

There is no confirmation about the powertrain yet, but we can expect a variety of engine options. The entry-level V6 mill might power the standard models and there might be another mid-range V8 engine. Under the hood of the Turbo will be a 4.0-litre V8 powerplant. The automaker is also expected to offer a diesel-powered variant and another plug-in hybrid model.

Porsche will officially unveil the latest iteration of the Panamera at the Paris Motor Show in October this year. On the other hand, the Turbo variant will make its debut at the Geneva Motor show next year. Porsche sells all their models in India via the CBU route. Once this second-generation Panamera is introduced in the international markets, it will also come to our country following its global launch.
