Completely Revised Engine Range Planned for Next Porsche Panamera [Updated]


Read more

The next Porsche Panamera is due to be replaced in about three years’ time by a car built on the VW Group's new MSB platform, which may be used on future Bentleys as well.

However, this won’t negatively affect it in any way, because as we’ve seen, the new Macan, for instance, may share its underpinnings with the Audi Q5, but it looks and drives completely differently as per the reviews we’ve seen.

Besides, Porsche is doing most of the work on this new platform, as it is leading the development, so it will probably have different characteristics from any other variants.

We also learn via Autocar that the new 2017 Panamera will also feature in-house-developed V8 engines, and it may very well get new V6s and diesels too – only the first is mentioned in the report, though.

“Porsche will have its own new V8 that will be common to the new MSB platform,” Porsche chief engineer Wolfgang Hatz said in Geneva. “It’s a family for the next 10 years of cars".

Additionally, it’s been suggested that Porsche is also looking at creating additional body variants based on the new model; coupe and soft-top models speculated, but what I’d personally like to see get made is a shooting brake model in the vein of the impressive Sport Turismo concept (pictured above and below).
