Our spy photographers have already caught the facelift version of the Porsche Panamera testing a few times, but until we believed that the luxury sedan will only be modified on the exterior. However, the British magazine Car reports that important changes will also be made under the hood.

It seems that Porsche decided to drop the V8 engine found in the Panamera 4s in favor of a new, high-performance 3.0-litre V6. This new engine will come with twin-turbo capacity and will deliver an impressive 420 HP - a 20 HP increase over the current model.

The new Panamera will also get Audi’s new V8 TDI diesel engine. This decision should not be such a surprise considering the Panamera is quite a hit on the European market.

The new Panamera facelift will arrive in April 2013 and prepares the path for the second generation Panamera that will arrive in 2015 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

What would be the outcome of that? Aside from getting lots of power on the engine? Will it affect the handling performance of this car?

The only difference of the 2013 Panamera is its enhanced exterior. 20HP is also added on the new model.

I’ve never imaging that the next Panamera will be looking like that.

Twin-turbo V6 engine would bring so much power to that car. Plus it can barely make your back stick to your sit.
