It’s been about a year since the facelifted first-generation Panamera arrived in U.S. dealerships for the 2014 model year, and Porsche is already working on a successor for its sports sedan. Sure, rumors of a redesigned Panamera have been flying around since early 2014, but it is only in late September that the actual vehicle was spotted in the wild. Of course, the Panamera depicted above is still an early prototype, but the lenses of our skilled paparazzi caught a few interesting features that are new to this four-door sports car .
Details are still under wraps, and the powertrain lineup remains a well-guarded secret, but that’s not exactly surprising considering the second-generation Panamera is nearly three years away. We expect the new sedan to make its official appearance in 2017, and go on sale in the United States for the 2018 model year. We also expect to bring you numerous details on the new Panamera by the end of 2014. Meanwhile, read on to find out what we know so far.
