2017 Porsche Panamera





This looks great.
I posted a couple of pictures of it a few days ago. These are the official ones.
And we get to see the interior too.
Which seems to be the perfect blend of "typical Porsche" and futuristic.
A true Porsche design for the 21st Century, really.

This pretty much fixes everything that was wrong with the first generation.
Which was pretty awkward, bloated, clumsy etc... This is just great.

Panamera S is powered by a new 440 V6.
While the "Turbo" model
 gets a new V8 with 550!

The new Panamera is also slightly larger than the outgoing model.

There will be more versions, probably including a plug-in Hybrid as well a less powerful base V6 model.

But the big news will be the all new wagon version.
And that will also be coming to the US.

I can't wait for this....

2017 Porsche Panamera




This is it. I'm pretty sure.
And it looks almost exactly like the spy brochure picture I posted a while ago (Except the wheels. This is a Turbo model)

I think it looks great. Much better than the current, heavy and clumsy design.
This is actually what it should have looked like in the first place.

Much more pictures coming very soon, so "stay tuned".

We will also see a wagon version later.

2017 Porsche Panamera

Looking much better than the current model.
This is what it should have looked like in the first place.

So, nothing scary here, just basically correcting the mistakes of the previous version.
Which is just fine.

From what we have seen of the interior, it is also much nicer and almost futuristic.
(Although the current model is still fine in that department.)

Engines will include versions of the all-new V8 unveiled a little while ago. As well as a V6.
The plug-in hybrid model is rumored to be much more efficient.
With a range of almost 40 miles (Instead of around 22 miles for the current version)

That will not compete with the Tesla Model S anytime soon, but the upcoming production version of the "Mission E Concept" EV will.

The new Panamera will be an even more compelling luxury sedan option.
It still retains the hatchback, like the Audi A7, but now add a glass roof option, just like the Tesla.
It just looks so much nicer than the "old men choices" like the BMW 7 series or the S Class.

And, a wagon version is coming up next. Which will look a lot like the gorgeous Sport Tourismo Concept from 2012.
And it will be coming to the US as well.

We should see the whole thing in September. As it will probably be officially unveiled at the Paris Auto Show. At least the regular version.
The wagon might debut sometime later.

There is also another rumor of a luxury coupe based on this.
And why not..

2017 Porsche 718 Boxster




 For the new year, Porsche is replacing the Boxster convertible with a new model called the "718 Boxster".
It is not an all new car, as you can see (The current model is in blue. The new one on top)
It now just looks a little bit sharper, and still great.



 Same thing from the back. I really liked the rear view of the current Boxster with that cool line going across from one light to the other.
But I also like the new one. At least on these pictures.
I think it does give a much more modern look to the car.
Really well done...


Not that much has changed inside, but it's all for the best.
The new trim seems more upscale. And the round vents and new steering wheel look much nicer.

The car itself has new engines. Flat 4 cylinder turbos for all.
One 2.0 liter with 300HP for the Boxster.
While the Boxster S gets a larger 2.5 Liter with 350HP.

And a 6 speed manual is still standard.

The new 718 Boxster comes out late April in Europe and June in the US.
It will start at $56 000. Or about $4000 more than the outgoing "Regular" Boxster

2016 Porsche Carrera



Here are the first pictures of the revised Carrera for 2016.
Not only they didn't ruin it, but I think they managed to make a gorgeous car look even better.
(slightly)

But the big news is the all new 3.0 Liter turbo engine.
With 370HP for the Carrera, and 420HP for the Carrera S.

Great job.
