Porsche Panamera Pics and Updates


While we previously reported on the upcoming Porsche 4-door due out next year, the German manufacturer has released the first photos of the sedan.

Eh…

As expected, from seeing the various spy photos scattered about the Internet, the Panamera is not something we will categorize in the drop-dead beauty department. While it does have a strong family resemblance through its design language, will this be enough to give it the street presence required of such a lofty price tag?

The pictures we see certainly don’t flatter, but take a look at this video and see if it changes your perspective. We feel this may indicate a better looking car in person.

In the category of updates, Porsche is trickling down new technology developed for the 997 refresh to its Boxster and Cayman models. The most notable improvements are more powerful and more fuel efficient engines, along with the new PDK dual-clutch transmissions. Some minor exterior updates have been implemented as well. The sum of these changes makes Porsche's entry-level offerings that much more desirable.
