It seems that some people got a little trigger-happy and released the pics and info about the Porsche Panamera before the Monday’s press embargo expired. That just means some early fun and speculation for us about Porsche’s first sedan.

Porsche Panamera - leaked official photos and details

The car sits on a 9.6 foot long wheelbase, and the total dimensions should be 16.3 feet long, 6.3 feet wide and 4.6 feet tall. The sedan should have optional PDK dual-clutch transmission as well as all-wheel drive. Although engine specifications have not yet been confirmed, what we do know is the front-engine Panamera will likely start out with a power range of about 300 to 500 hp through a range of V6 and V8 engines. A hybrid powertrain and diesel version may also be in the works.

The car will be seen in the flesh in January at the Detroit Auto Show. We will have plenty of updates until then, but for now enjoy some closure from all the speculation and renderings (AutoBild got it pretty close) with some official pics.

It just looks like a longer and uglier Lexus IS-F. Stick to those Supercars, Porche, leave the sedans to BMW and Mercedes.

ugly!
What were Porshce thinking when designing this?? Were they trying to do a hatch-cum-sedan-cum-station wagon-cum-coupe?? Hopefully the Pan would fare out well in other places (like it’s Cayenne brother). The Cayennes were for the 911-loving moms, this one is for the dads. I think Porsche has made the right desicion!
