The second-generation Porsche Panamera will be revealed in full at the Paris Motor Show this October.
This is going to be the brand’s second major product launch after the unveiling of the 718 Boxster, company sources told AutoNews.
We have already seen Porsche testing their new four-door model with almost no camo at all, which is a company’s way to tell the world that their model is almost ready. The new Panamera will be using VW’s new lighter and more fuel efficient MSB platform, which is also going to underpin models like the new Bentley Continental.
The four-door luxury model was the worst-selling Porsche last year, with sales declining 31 per cent to 17,207 units compared to 2014. Despite the decline in sales, the Panamera remained popular with customers in China thanks to the combination of a 911’s sporty character with the roominess of a four-door body.
Porsche is also planning to offer a Shooting Brake variant, initially in Europe, in a bid to further boost sales and attract buyers that need the added practicality but don’t want to switch over to an SUV.
