Can't come soon enough

The Porsche Panamera has always been a little controversial thanks to its less than stellar styling, but that could soon be changing as the company is preparing to introduce the next-generation model in 2015 or 2016.

Expected to be heavily influenced by the Panamera Sport Turismo concept, the model could have an aggressive front fascia and a 911-inspired rear end which mercifully hides the car's hatchback.

Little else is known about the model, but previous reports have indicated it will ride on the MSB platform (modular standard architecture) that will also underpin future Bentleys and possibly a couple Lamborghinis. Slated to feature steel and aluminum construction, the MSB architecture could enable the Panamera to weigh 200 lbs (91 kg) less than the current model.

I have had several Porsche's in the past. Right now, I have a Panamera 4S. The 911 has always been an unique shape vs many wedged shaped sports cars. The Panamera is easily recognizable as a Large, stretched version of the iconic 911. The rendering above changes that for me but sometimes you might have to see the car in the real Flesh.The back end looks like a regular car. I love the Porsche 911/Panamera big bulbous back end.

Just build the sport turismo porsche!! There need be no styling changes! And of course, more boot space than this quite ugly sedan rendering.

The Panamera has always been a love it or hate it design. The new car appears to be going mainstream. Sure, it will be expensive but the design language seems to be going more mainstream. The uniqueness of the Panamera has always been the fastback design. This car seems to be losing that concept. Sad

Definitely better looking than the current one. The rendering if it goes that route is a takes away some fire out of the Rapide's good looks!

Youtube video made in 2009, named " 2010 Porsche Panamera- body redesign ", suggesting a semi-notchback rear & bigger wheel openings for the Panamera to make it look better. Funny how close it is, with this second generation design!

If it is "expected to be heavily influenced by the Panamera Sport Turismo concept", why would the person rendering this change the rear completely from that concept?

I like the Panamera because it looks so different. If they make the sedan above, why bother buying one!

Yes, looks different, but in a wrong way. The rear end of the current one is looking horrible. A 4 door Porsche won't be a real Porsche anyway. At least this rendering looks way better than the current one.
