After months of spy photos and teasers, photos of the 2017 Porsche Panamera have leaked.

Instagram user porsche919hybrid posted photos of the next-generation Porsche Panamera, which is expected to make its debut next week in Germany. But it looks like it won’t be much of a surprise, now that we can see the new Panamera completely undisguised. Overall, the sedan gets a sleeker body while the revised front end looks sportier than before. The awkward hunchback design has essentially been eliminated, giving way to a stylish rear-end design that looks inspired by the 911. Overall, the design looks more like a four-door coupe, and that should bode well for shoppers.

Porsche also released a short teaser video of the new Panamera that you can watch below.
