The luxury sports sedan looks amazing in new spy photos.

It has long been known that Porsche is preparing to upgrade the Panamera to refresh the luxury sedan, three years after the current generation goes on sale. Now, it seems that the debut of the updated Porsche Panamera is just around the corner, as the new prototype has been spotted with less camouflage, revealing some subtle style changes.

In front, the updated Porsche Panamera is equipped with a revised front bumper with some minor changes that mimic the new 911 992 Porsche. It is worth noting that there is still some kind of camouflage between the rear lights, concealing, presumably, a wider LED strip connecting the rear lights than its predecessor . Experts believe that the graphics of the rear lights will change and will resemble the new Cayenne. A large number of camouflage hiding the diffuser can be seen between the four exhaust pipes.

Photo spies have not been able to look inside yet, but previous pictures have already shown that the restyled Panamera’s interior will look almost identical to its predecessor, with the exception of the new upgraded steering wheel removed from the new 911. The infotainment system can also be updated. .

While the visual changes will be minor, the updated Panamera will receive the new hybrid powertrain for the first time. As in the current model, power will be provided by a 2.9-liter Twin-Turbo V6, which will receive the same 48-volt hybrid system and electric compressor architecture that the Audi S6 and S7 2020 model year use.

According to preliminary information, Porsche is preparing a new hardcore track-oriented Panamera, known as the “Leon”, with a capacity of 820 hp, which will try to set a new lap record at the Nurburgring among four-door cars. If this model becomes a serial, then we can confidently talk about the new Panamera line. Judging by the latest photos, the updated Porsche Panamera may debut this summer.
