The second-generation Porsche Panamera is scheduled to make its debut in Germany by the end of June, but now there are leaked images unveiled on the Internet. While the predecessor’s look polarised opinions, the new Panamera is certainly a looker!

For those familiar with Porsche’s design philosophy of having subtle differences for each successive models, the new Panamera incorporates some fresh design.The front LED headlights and a double strip of LED running lights add character to the fascia, but the rear receives the most overhaul. This time, the curves look more natural and elegant, removing the awkward rear from the old model. Completing the back are a set of thinner taillights and dual quad exhaust seen underneath as well.2016-porsche-panamera-2

While the interior pics are limited, we can see it’s strictly a four-seater saloon, with a touch screen interface located in the middle of the rear seats. The instrument cluster remains similar with the predecessor but perhaps some add-ons are expected in this new model.

Underneath the bonnet lies a 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 for power. No figures are known at this point of time, as are the engine options for the new car. But one thing’s for sure: the Porsche PDK dual-clutch gearbox will definitely come with the Panamera.

The new Panamera is set for its worldwide debut on 28 June in Germany. Dubbed as “the fastest luxury sedan on Earth“, it looks like Porsche is game-on to challenge other established rivals from Maserati, Bentley and BMW in that segment.

Meanwhile, here’s a teaser video of the new Panamera!
