The Panamera has finally evolved, and is a welcomed improvement over the previous generation

The Panamera has been around since 2009, when it arrived as Porsche’s first four-door sedan. Much like the Cayenne SUV, the Panamera was developed to help the brand expand into new segments, attract a new category of buyers, and finance the costly development of range-topping supercars such as the 918 Spyder. For the 2017 model year, Porsche is ushering in a new generation for the Panamera, complete with a new exterior design, new interior design, a new engine lineup, and plenty of little goodies like LED headlights, safety assistance systems, an innovative chassis system, a 21-speaker Burmester 3D sound system, and plenty of available equipment and personalization options. Porsche has unveiled two models today – the Panamera 4S with a 2.9-liter, twin-turbo V-6 that delivers 440 horsepower and the Panamera Turbo that uses a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo, V-8 that delivers 550 horsepower.

According to Porsche, the Panamera is “proof on four wheels” that sportiness and comfort can come in the same package. Dr. Gernot Döllner, the Head of the Panamera Model Range, said, "This diversity is what makes the vehicle unique, and that is what guided us with the new Panamera as well. Nevertheless, we took many courageous steps and developed not only the new body, new powertrain and new chassis but also a completely new overall vehicle. Through all the changes, however, the Panamera remains faithful to its original conceptions."

And, that is what Porsche says the Panamera is all about – Courage. It took courage to change, and change is what the Panamera did. A new look, new engines, and new approach should all make the Panamera even more marketable for the 2017 model year. We’ve seen the spy shots, and the leaked photos, but now we’re finally getting to look at the official release images. With that said, let’s take a closer look at the new Panamera.

Updated 07/19/2016: Porsche dropped details on its new "Connect" system that will be offered as standard equipment on the new generation Panamera. Check the "Interior" section for the full details on it.
