Porsche Panamera facelift spied without camo

2014 Porsche Panamera facelift spy photo 08.03.2013 / Automedia

Mid-cycle revision

One of the most popular cars among our spies is the Porsche Panamera facelift which has been caught on camera once again.

Reports are indicating the revised model will make its official appearance next month but we already have a clear idea of how it will look since these spy photos show a completely undisguised prototype testing in Scandinavia.

It will come with a modified front fascia, headlights and taillights. Looking closely at the photos we notice there are two different types of grilles and daytime running lights, which means one will be for the standard version while the other for the hotter S model.

Chances are the 2014 Porsche Panamera S facelift could be offered with a V6 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine developing about 420 hp (313 kW), along with possibly a V8 TDI borrowed from Audi.

The next generation of the Panamera is expected to arrive in 2015 (probably as a 2016MY) and will ride on the MSB platform which will make it lose 91 kg (200 lbs) compared to the current model.

More of a Cayene relative, still can't help but wonder how this might do with a rear mounted flat six ...

The rear glass seems greatly widened to have a better view when backing up. The last 2013 model 4S I drove needed a backup camera installed which I believe the FEDS have mandated for all MY 2014 onwards. This is an improvement over the current small tunnel one see in the rearview mirror.

Needs a face lift, tummy tuck, botox, and cheek fillers... But then again so does the A7, and BMW GT's.

She's got a great ass. There's just no other sedan so unique, sporty and classic. Others are just pretending to be with the look

True, but the original concept still was way better looking until Wiedeking messed with the roofline. But perhaps it's a good thing, because the main competitor, the Aston Martin Rapide lacks headroom in the back, so the Panamera is the better choice for people who like to be chauffeured around.

this is a bold and visionary move. this is the type of headroom people expect from a sedan.. the rapide back seat is a complete joke

Agreed because while I don't particularly like how this new refresh is shaping, I can't help but still wanting one anyway just because.

Slimmer and seemingly stretched tail lights with kinked corner, and some reflectors lower down to break up rear bumper mass. Kinked and reshaped head lights and new bumper, all in all some nice revisions given it's only a facelift. The new Quattroporte looks pretty bad so this will probably do well.

It is not the face that is a problem in Panamera looks... its the hunch back :/

I wish there was some treatment to the hunchback look.
