As Thursdays were casually carrying on as usual, a “leak” somewhere in Porsche has led to the surfacing of some photos of what appear to be the next-generation Panamera.
We already knew a second-gen model was on the horizon and thus, the Panamera comes as expectedly as clockwork. The pictures appear to be of the OEM type, with clear visuals of a four-door Porsche, with a design mimicking the outgoing model, but with plenty of new cues inspired by the recent Mission E Concept.
Current speculation points to the use of some new platforms from Volkswagen AG, while some new turbocharged four- and six-cylinder engines, both gas and diesel, will be made available, with a top-spec turbocharged V8 for the most powerful of variants.
Porsche is also expected to launch another plug-in hybrid model with rumors of a full electric version possibly in the works, and a new wagon variant as well.
But until Porsche reveals the full car, we’ll have to deal with these teasers for now. Of course, you can also expect to drive really well.
