Porsche Teases 2017 Panamera, Barely

Porsche Teases 2017 Panamera, Barely

Porsche is starting its second-generation Panamera campaign with a teaser pic and a video, but neither show us much.

We get a glimpse of its taillights, rear windshield and Porsche lettering, and that’s about it. From those sparse details, it looks like it could borrow a bit from the updated 911. We’re hoping for a bit more to go by before Porsche officially shows the long overdue redesigned sedan off to the world at the Paris Auto Show this fall. It will be the sedan’s first redo since its introduction way back in 2009.

The second-generation will be built on VW’s new lighter-weight, more fuel-efficient MSB modular platform. The platform is also expected to also underpin some Bentley, Bugatti and Lamborghini vehicles.

The new Panamera will arrive in Europe first, followed by China and then the U.S. in 2017.

A Panamera Wagon is also now in the works for the U.S., too, but it won’t arrive until 2018. That’s a long six years after Porsche first teased us with the idea at the 2012 Paris Auto Show. It’s also going to be late to the new “wagon party” about to hit the States. The Mercedes-Benz E400 Wagon and Volvo V90 will both arrive stateside in 2017.
