I'm fairly certain that it will be a pretty great car, but Porsche needs to do something about the styling. It still looks like a humpback whale!

I was under the impression that the new Panamera would eventually look like the Sport Turismo concept that had surfaced in 2012. The tighter proportions and shooting-brake design was exactly what the doctor had ordered. Well, at least they've incorporated the LED strip and brake-lights.

EDIT: The Sport Turismo is what the Panamera should have been!

Berlin: 2017 Porsche Panamera unveiled

The second-generation 2017 Porsche Panamera has been revealed during an event in Berlin, Germany. The new Panamera is longer, wider and taller than the model it replaces, and tries to break away from the design lines of the previous-gen Panamera.

The overall character of the four-door coupe is inspired from the new 911, with minor design cues from the 718 Boxster and Cayman. The front and rear get new set of LED lights, which make the Panamera a part of the updated Porsche family design. The biggest change becomes apparent when you see the Panamera from the side, as the new sports coupe gets a relatively slimmer profile. The designers have managed to keep the headroom unchanged, despite a drop of 20 mm in the roof height at the rear. Moreover, a 30 mm increase in the wheelbase of the new Panamera gives it a more planted stance.

On the inside, the second-gen Porsche Panamera gets a fully digital control panel that has minimized the use of any physical knobs and buttons. The instrument cluster gets an analog tachnometer which is surrounded by two high-resolution screens that are responsible for showcasing all necessary information to the driver. A 12.3-inch touchscreen system is mounted on the centre console comes with Porsche Communication Management (PCM 4.1). The rear seats get digital screens to take care of the infotainment needs of the rear occupants.

Engine options on offer with the new Panamera include a 2.9-litre V6 bi-turbo petrol mill that powers the Panamera 4S, and generates 434 BHP and 550 Nm of torque. Porsche claims that the 4S can sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds. Meanwhile, the Panamera Turbo gets a twin-turbo, 4.0-litre V8 with 542 BHP and 770 Nm available on tap. This helps the Turbo variant to reach the 100 km/h mark in 3.8 seconds. Additionally, Porsche had added a new 4S diesel variant to the line-up that is powered by a 4.8 litre V8 engine rated at 416 BHP and 850 Nm. These power figures make it the most powerful diesel engine ever made by Porsche. In the 4S diesel, the 0-100 km/h sprint takes 4.5 seconds.

All the three engines are mated to an 8-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission. The company has also claimed that the latest Panamera is 16 percent more fuel efficient than the model it replaces.

Congrats Porsche, What a beauty!
And that too not much have changed styling wise from the current gen. Just a tuck here, a little correction there and all of a sudden it all makes sense.
I dont know why anybody would want to buy something like a cls/ghibli/6series/A7 anymore. This just beats them all hands down. The turbo version can easily take care of the likes of m5/e63/rs7 and the v8 diesel is probably the best all rounder car ever made.
This has got to be the most apt upgrade for the 530d owner looking for a practical yet fun to drive car.

Proposing a different view. I could be wrong.

The motortrend article is aptly headlines the "Huge Spoiler" and the "Simpler Cabin"

A wing which grows even sideways and all electronic trickery inside. Like Jeremy Clarkson says: "Imagine sitting next to a guy over a dinner who explains how all this works".

For that reason i feel that this car would not meet the simple V8 Muscle car charm of CLS63/M6 Gran Turismo etc.

In India probably the additional Flaunt value that Porsche has over the other cars might be an additional incentive to the buyer. But wont a Panamera be on a whole new price bracket compared to an equivalent CLS or 6 Series.

2017 Porsche Panamera blitzes the Nordschleife.



Talk about a true blue luxury stonker! I believe this time around Porsche have gone ahead and outdone themselves on this one. Turns out the 2017 Panamera Turbo clocked a scarcely believable 7 min. 38 sec. around the Nurburgring Nordschleife.

It weighs in most part of 2000 kilos and is filled with all that the discerning luxury car driver would come to expect of his Porsche and it is 14 seconds a lap faster round the ring than the car it replaces!

For a little bit of perspective on how quick that is, take a look at some of the lap times it has managed to beat around what they also call "The Green Hell".

And yes, the first name on the list is a V12 mid-engined Italian hypercar from not that long ago and yes a big four-door saloon car just trashed its time.
  • Lamborghini Murcielago SV - 7min 42sec
  • Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 - 7min 41.27sec
  • Mercedes SLS AMG - 7min 40sec
  • Porsche 911 GT3 (997) - 7min 40sec
  • Porsche 911 Turbo (997) - 7min 39sec
  • Ferrari F430 Scuderia - 7min 39sec
  • Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio - 7min 39sec

Look at that rear wing! It looks like it belongs to something in Tony Starks' Garage!! *Do not miss the end of the video*

I dont think anybody can call an m6/rs7/cls simple muscle cars, what with 20 different driving modes and sound piped through the speakers and all.
They are all high tech land whales with 50 km of wiring inside them.

Its just that porsche 's land whale if going by the previous standards set by porsche is going to be a cut above other maker's land whales.
It is certainly going to have the driving pleasure part covered all for itself. The ring time certainly backs it up.
It is also just as practical as the others.
It's got stunning start trek interiors loaded with just as much technology
Its more or less same as others when it comes to reliability and A.S.S
It's got immense heritage and brand value I would argue much more than the competition.
And now finally, it is beautiful as well.
The only sketchy part here is the price and how much premium porsche is going to charge for the panamera. If its a reasonable premium and yes it certainly does warrant a premium for reasons above, what we have here is a clear winner.

Agree , interiors are drool worthy. Everything from the Dash to the rear LCD for various adjustments looks so cool , leaves 7 series rear Tablet as something from stone age BMW designers should buy one.

However I am not very impressed with the rear LED Light that's stretched all across the trunk - maybe it's not so displeasing in person. And as per TopGear we are going to see more such designs across Porsche range

definite worthy upgrade for guys bored from regular BMW / Mercedes stuff.

some nice stuff from TopGear

So a lot of people seem to be going ga ga over the spoiler. But its pretty much the same as what was in the previous Panamera GTS

But wow Porsche, this Panamera is something else. Looks really good, and the interiors seem incredible. The Diesel S is mouthwatering!

True... just looks so much better / more filled out than the GTS' version:

True!

The problem was that the ol' Panny was so spectacularly ugly that no one gave it a second look and that trick spoiler went unnoticed.

It's incredible how a nip here and a tuck there has transformed the car. The rear three-quarters still looks bulbous and perhaps a tad ungainly, but it does look much better than the old car.

Now, what Porsche needs to do is take the rear doors off and voila, they'd have the perfect successor to the erstwhile 928!

Thumbs up Re: 2017 Porsche Panamera (Next Gen)

Eight things we learned about the 2017 Porsche Panamera:

"We just spent two days in Germany with the 2017 Porsche Panamera, and now that we're back home in the States it's time for show and tell. The design is probably the most noticeable difference, but there is a lot going on inside and underneath this new Porsche sedan. Here are eight important bits worth talking about"....http://www.autoblog.com/2016/07/01/e...sche-panamera/

What a beautiful looking Car inside out. Porsche has upped the game in terms of performance and luxury. One of the reasons for getting this over the competition is exclusivity. And yes that spoiler does look really cool.
