2014 Porsche Panamera Facelift with New Twin-Turbo V6 and Hybrid V6 Leaked

Images and initial specifications of the refreshed 2014 Porsche Panamera have just leaked online ahead of an official release, which should follow later in the day or during this week.

As we’ve seen many times through the prototype models over the past year or so, the cosmetic tweaks for the first facelift of the Panamera are concentrated on the two ends, with the front gaining newly shaped headlights and bumper, and the rear end, LED tail light clusters, a new bumper, modified tailgate and a relocated license plate holder.

There aren’t any visible updates to the interior in these pictures, but we will have to wait for Porsche and the official announcement to be sure.

As far as the powertrains are concerned, the revised Panamera is said to gain a new S E-Hybrid plug-in variant combining a 3.0-liter V6 unit with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack producing a combined output of 410hp, and a new new twin-turbo’d 3.0-liter V6 gasoline unit making 413-horses (419PS) that replaces the naturally aspirated 395hp (400PS) 4.8-litre V8 in the S model.

We’ll update this post once Porsche released full details.
