After many teasers, renderings, spy shots, and whatever you used to help shape your vision of the second generation Porsche Panamera, all such assumptions can be laid to rest, because it’s here!

Meet the 2017 Porsche Panamera, and yes, it is much better looking than the outgoing first generation model.

Click here for more news on the Porsche Panamera.

While at first glance, you can argue that the new Panamera doesn’t really look that much different from the old one, the changes are all in the details, which add up to make a pretty different looking Panamera. Overall, the Panamera grows very subtly to the tune of a tiny growth spurt, with the wheelbase getting an extra 1.2 inches and overall length gaining 1.3 inches overall.

For starters, the design is far more sleek and toned-down when compared to the original. The body of the new car doesn’t look as pudgy as a kid who got fat in all of the wrong places. Where as the old car looked like it had deformities, the new car looks like a clean, cohesive, four-door coupe-like shooting brake. It also more closely resembles a four-door 911.

But a four-door 911 the Panamera is not, as the engine still sits up front with Volkswagen AG’s latest MSB longitudinal modular platform. The engines up for choice are quite similar to the ones from the outgoing model, with a base Panamera starting with a twin-turbo 2.9L V6 with 434hp and 406 lb-ft of torque, and an optional twin-turbo 4.0L V8 serving up a total of 542hp and 568 lb-ft of twist.

Lovers of tire-torching torque can opt for the Panamera Diesel as well with a twin-turbo compression-ignition V8 with 416hp and 627 lb-ft in reserve.

All Panameras come with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed dual-clutch PDK automatic.

Other new introductions for the second generation Panamera include InnoDrive, a new infotainment system and on-board computer that collectively combined navigation and sat-nav data, radar, and video technology, all of which sound like stuff for autonomous driving tech.

But in reality, it’s for the Panamera’s adaptive air suspension, which comes with rear-axle steering as an option, similarly to the 911. More so, InnoDrive works with the car’s navigation system to actively use navigation and position data, to anticipate a curve, adjusting the suspension for body control, the transmission, and throttle inputs accordingly to the driver’s “mode” choice. All of this can be viewed on a massive, center console-placed 12.3-inch infotainment screen.

Pricing has been announced for the US, which you can see in our Quick Tech Specs below. Keep in mind, this isn’t all that’s in store for the Panamera as there are rumors for some hybrid and EV variants, as well as a full-fledged wagon version that will come to America.

    The Porsche Panamera undergoes a complete redesign for 2017 A completely new range of engines powers the second-gen Panamera,
    starting with a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 that puts out 440 horsepower and
    405 pound-feet of torque. In the Panamera 4S, that’s enough to launch
    the saloon to 60 in 4.4 seconds (4.2 with the optional Sport Chrono
    Package) and to hit a top speed of 180 miles per hour. The Panamera
    Turbo boasts a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 with 550 hp and 567 lb-ft. The
    0–60 run takes just 3.6 seconds (3.4 with Sport Chrono) and the top
    speed is 190 mph. Both the 4S and the Turbo come with standard all-wheel
    drive and an eight-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission
