An image of the new Porsche Panamera has been leaked ahead of its reveal on November 24.
It appears this Porsche Panamera is a high-performance Turbo variant as it’s finished in the new Turbonite accent colour that’s now being used to distinguish it from the rest of the range.
In the leaked image there’s Turbonite paintwork on the wheels, inlays of the front apron, as well as on the recently redesigned Porsche crest.
All hybrid variants have a completely revised drivetrain boasting a new electric motor which sits behind the engine in a new dual-clutch transmission.
In addition, the new high-voltage battery has a capacity of 25.9kWh, which is 7kWh more than the outgoing model.
The available combustion engines have also received performance upgrades, though the full details haven’t been revealed yet.
For context, the new Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid pairs a 130kW electric motor with an “extensively reworked” 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine producing 441kW, for total outputs of 544kW of power and 950Nm of torque.
As standard the new Panamera comes with a semi-active chassis with new two-valve shock absorbers – an optional “high-end” chassis with active damper control will be available.
Porsche recently revealed the interior design of the new Panamera which borrows heavily from the new Cayenne and Taycan.
The tech-laden interior puts the driver experience at the centre of what Porsche calls “the perfect balance between analogue and digital elements”.
Drivers will have access to a navigation toggle for the instrument cluster and drive mode selector on the steering wheel.
The small gear selector has been moved to sit beside the steering wheel on the dash.
A tilted centre console combines digital and physical climate controls, which sit below new finless air vents (that need to be adjusted using the touchscreen) and above a more spacious under-arm storage space.
Passengers will be able to preconfigure personalised climate control settings and switch between them easily.
A screen-heavy interior is made up of a 12.6-inch, curved, free-standing driver instrument cluster behind the steering wheel, and a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system. A 10.9-inch passenger display is optional, as is a head-up display.
According to Porsche, the seats have improved cushioning and elasticity, as well as freshly contoured rear seats which improve comfort for passengers.
Solid and dual-colour material options are available through Porsche’s Exclusive Manufaktur, the brand’s customisation arm.
New for the Panamera is a leather-free offering using materials such as Race-Tex and Pepita patterned fabric.
As noted above, Porsche is set to reveal the new Panamera on November 24 at the Icons of Porsche Festival in Dubai.
