Next-Gen Porsche Panamera to Look More ‘Coupe-Like’


Are you a fan of the Porsche Panamera’s design? Love it or, well, not, the company’s CEO Matthias Müller said the next generation of this luxury sedan must have improved styling.

He said they will “do it better” with the upcoming version of this car. They will also work on improving the interior, which probably isn’t as controversial as its bodywork. Porsche is a luxury automaker and the Panamera’s cockpit is already chockablock with fine leather and other high-end materials.

Commenting on sales, Müller said he expects the new model to be at least as successful as today’s version. To date more than 100,000 Panameras have been delivered.

The next-generation will be styled by Michael Mauer, the same guy that created today’s model. He also promises that it will look better but admits the car will still be polarizing and that some people won’t like it. And that’s ok with him because he said he’d rather build emotional vehicles than ones that please everyone.

So, what will the next-generation Panamera look like? Well, Mauer said it will have a more coupe-like roofline than today’s version but it will still be familiar.

Unfortunately, I am one of those people who does not like the looks of this car, in spite of how excellent it is.

Perhaps a more coupe like successor will spawn a new 928 coupe
(just no more 18 foot long serpentine drive belts like the original, please)

I don’t understand why they don’t just make it a smart looking wagon or shooting brake and be done with it.
