    Porsche will take the wraps off the third-gen Panamera by the end of this year. The new Panamera is being extensively tested in multiple weather conditions ahead of its global debut. It will also be the first new Porsche to wear the brand's new badge upon debut.

    The original 970 Panamera arrived in 2010 and was subsequently facelifted in 2013. The second-generation 971 was introduced in 2016 and received a round of mid-life upgrades in 2020. In each case, Porsche planned the Panamera for a life cycle of between six and seven years, with a facelift three to four years after its introduction.

    New Porsche Panamera: what all is known?

    While there will be a lot of styling changes in the new Panamera, its front-end design is expected similar to the current model while the rear will get new lights and an updated spoiler. The new Panamera, which goes by the internal working name 972, is set to continue the German company’s long tradition for small, evolutionary changes between generations, with an exterior design that subtly progresses the look of the six-year-old second-generation Porsche Panamera. Underneath its steel and aluminium bodywork, Porsche is lining up more significant modifications to the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé and Mercedes-Benz CLS competitor.

    New Porsche Panamera: powertrain options

    With the two-year-old Porsche Taycan leading the firm's electric vehicle push, the Panamera is due to receive a revised range of petrol powertrains, all with heavily reworked exhaust systems and tweaked software aimed at meeting the upcoming Euro 7 emission regulations. Along with updated versions of today’s twin-turbocharged, 2.9-litre V6 and 4.0-litre V8 engines, featuring 48V mild-hybrid properties, the new Panamera looks set to adopt a heavily revised plug-in hybrid powertrain that is also planned for the recently unveiled fourth-gen Cayenne SUV.
