2016 Porsche Panamera

Since its first appearance, Panamera was a breathtaking vehicle. Porsche recorded selling numbers way ahead of their plan, so that was the best indicator to continue with development of this vehicle. No radical changes are expected for 2015 year model, but 2016 Porsche Panamera could start new generation of the vehicle. New architecture is mentioned as well as platform. Engine lineup will be just slightly modified.

2016 Porsche Panamera platform

New architecture design will be used for 2016 Porsche Panamera. From the spyshots, we can clearly see similarities with third generation of the Bentley’s Continental family. Also, MSB platform will be borrowed from VW’s Group, which means new 2016 Porsche Panamera will be front-engine, rear-wheel-drive. Both Panamera and Continental will have same type of engine mounting under the hood, close to the bulkhead and well within the car’s wheelbase. This should improve balance and handling at high speeds. With MSB concept, drivetrain will be mounted forward, and that is the variation which Porsche’s engineers wanted to have.

2016 Porsche Panamera redesign

New platform means new materials used for building new Porsche Panamera. Lightweight aluminum and high-strength steel will make most of these. Aluminum will help 2016 Panamera’s diet, while steel will add necessarily strength in crashes. Weight lose by using these materials won’t be significant, since dimensions of the vehicle will remain the same. However, new Porsche Panamera will get some boost in fuel economy, especially if we know that current hybrid version has 700 pounds more than petrol engine.

Porsche recently introduced turbocharged V6 powertrain, so it is probable that new Panamera will use some modified version of this engine.
