Porsche has just announced that it will be taking wraps off the next-gen Panamera by the end of 2023. The new model has been spotted testing extensively in various countries ahead of its global debut later this year.
Besides, the 3rd-generation of Porsche’s four-door super saloon will be the first model in the lineup to receive the new logo that has been updated for 2023.
New Porsche Panamera: What Will It Look Like?
The new Porsche Panamera will have a fresh design but will retain some styling touches from the outgoing model. At the front, it will have an evolutionary design change with all-new headlights and front grille.
In profile, the new model will maintain the overall silhouette but will get new character lines, flush-fitting door handles and a new set of alloy wheels. Moving to the rear, we expect Porsche to give the Panamera an all-new rear-end with redesigned LED taillights, an active rear spoiler and a reprofiled diffuser.
New Porsche Panamera: All-New Interior
Moving to the inside, Porsche has not given us any details of the interiors. But we expect the 2024 Panamera to come equipped with a clean-sheet design inspired by the Taycan and the 4th-gem Cayenne.
The new changes could include a larger infotainment system, a fully-digital instrument cluster and reduced physical buttons. In addition to these, we can also expect an updated version of the Porsche Communication Management system with 5G data compatibility to make its way to the new cabin.
New Porsche Panamera: Powertrain Details
In terms of powertrain, we expect Porsche to offer the familiar 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 and 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 motors that get a 48V mild-hybrid setup. Both engine options will feature heavily reworked exhaust systems and modified software that make them compatible with the upcoming Euro 7 norms.
In addition to the above-mentioned engines, the new Panamera is also expected to get a plug-in hybrid option that will also be seen on the new Cayenne SUV.
New Porsche Panamera: First Model To Get New Badge
Celebrating its 75th year anniversary, Porsche unveiled a new logo that gets an updated design with a 3D effect and small colour change that is intended to “bridge the history and future of the brand”. At the unveiling ceremony, the company confirmed that the upcoming 2024 Panamera will be the first car to wear the new badge.
Rober Ader, chief marketing officer at Porsche said, "We will be using the crest in a more targeted way to underline emotional highlights. At the same time, the Porsche lettering will gain even greater significance.”
Matthias Kulla, Porsche director of design management for its sports car programmes, added, "When we presented the crest, there was always the desire to actually feel it and not only look at it. The effect it has, not just as a graphic but also as a 3D piece, was a very strong focus,".
