Porsche designers seem to have copied the design of the 991-generation 911 onto the Panamera. The logic is simple: everybody thinks the 911 is a classic. Therefore, people will stop hating the Panamera.
Of course, there are a few… minor differences between the 911 and Panamera. The most obvious is that the sedan has its engine in the front, and the sportscar has it at the back. But who cares, right?
The shape of the taillights and the boot closely mirror those of a 911 Turbo. In fact, people who don't know about cars might confuse these two.
We're expecting huge technological advancements in all major areas. Porsche engineers have been working on this project for over two years, so it's clearly an important one.
All new engines will be placed inside an all-new body with an all-new drivetrain. The tech is so good that Bentley is going to use it too for their next Continental GT.
Inside, Porsche might consider a more simplistic approach since their layouts have become a little cluttered.
We're most excited to see what the new V8 is like. 600 horsepower from a 4-liter with e-turbos? But if it has a 911 butt, the battle is half-won.
