Report says new Panamera arrives in Q3
Sports sedan was last all-new in 2016
While there are some spy photos circulating that give a glimpse of the new Porsche, they don’t show us all that much. So what do we know?
For a start, the new Panamera is expected to get new gas engines. It may be the last round of new gas engines from Porsche, at least outside of the 911, as the brand moves toward electrification.
A new PHEV driveline is also likely, shared with the one that will be used in the next generation of the Porsche Cayenne. Autocar says that all of the PHEVs will get new gas engines and new electric motors as well as bigger batteries. That should give it “significantly more” electric range than the current model’s E-hybrid variants.
The first Panamera hit the road in 2010 and was replaced in 2016. Despite a mid-life refresh in 2020, that makes the performance sedan due for a new model and starting to be a bit dated against its competition.
If you’re waiting for a fully-electric version of the car, one which will sit above the Taycan EV in the Porsche range, you still probably have a few years. That one isn’t expected until sometime around 2027, though there’s nothing official yet.
