Porsche engineers are prepping the next Panamera, and we’ve got pictures of it testing. Our spy photographers have caught Stuttgart’s saloon testing at the ‘Ring ahead of a likely late-2023 launch – and it’s shaping up nicely. 

Panamera front

All the prototypes shown here are disguised, but it’s still possible to see what Stuttgart has planned for its popular, ICE-powered executive saloon. The headlights have been revised, and there’s also a new Taycan-style rear light cluster that seems to be more squared off than previously.

The bumpers look have been tweaked too, but this car looks to be an evolution rather than a revolution.

What about the interior?

Inside, the Panamera looks to borrow several styling cues from its electric-powered Taycan sibling: alongside fully digital cockpit dials, Stuttgart has also added a gear selector and touchscreen very similar to the electric Porsche.

What’s more, the front passenger also has access to their very own touchscreen, once again mirroring the current Taycan and Cayenne SUV. 

We’ll update this article when we know more.
