The rumors about the next-generation Porsche Panamera have been really loud lately. Reportedly, the fans should expect the latest Panamera with a new body style very soon since it has been planned to hit the market as a 2019 model.
The four-door sedan known as the Porsche Panamera has been popular and well-known in the market for some time. However, the 2019 model is about to receive a brand-new body style and hit the market as a two-door coupe. According to the information we have got, the new Panamera will still ride on the same MSB platform and the front end will pretty much be shared with the four-door sedan. Speaking of the front end, we must say that it has obviously been inspired by the 911. That way, the new Panamera get sportier and sharper look as well as better aerodynamics. The front bumper together with large air intakes gives this model a bit aggressive appearance. The grille, however, is expected to be smaller. Other changes include the profile of this vehicle where you will notice its sportier roofline. The back part of the new Panamera wears a new set of LED taillights that will be slimmer. Also, the fans will find a massive rear bumper and quad exhaust tips that will contribute to that sporty and menacing look.
Inside the 2019 Porsche Panamera, the fans should hope to find some pretty luxurious cabin. The carmaker will definitely make some serious changes and improvements in terms of materials, overall comfort and technology. The coupe should perfectly accommodate up to four adult passengers due to its 2+2 seating configuration. On the other hand, the well-known four-door sedan can receive five passengers. Porsche will employ some high-quality materials inside such as leather and wood, but also those lightweight ones such as aluminum and carbon fiber. Its glass panoramic sunroof can only guarantee more pleasure and sense of luxury during the ride. The driver will get a 7.0-inch digital information display, but also a 12.3-inch touch-screen with the latest infotainment and entertainment system. It will include the last-generation features such as satellite navigation, audio system, climate control, radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB ports and Apple Car Play.
The 2019 Porsche Panamera should offer either a 3.0-liter V6 or a 4.0-liter V8 under its hood. The first option is expected to deliver 434 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque while the other should hit up to 550 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. Either of them should be mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, but none of these numbers and outputs has been officially confirmed, so we hope for more information soon.
