    Well I think Gen I is considered a success by many... :)


    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    Looks like Autocar.co.uk posted the link of the new Panamera Facelift too soon... indecision  (it says "page not found"...)

    they already remove it...

    Wider track is major , visual , improvement


    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    Turbo aero-kit is so much like new Cayman, which is very nice!

    Also the standard trim is a big improvement to the current one.


    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    This one looks like Long Version, look at the rear door

    "Like" for the Turbo, not sure about the rest models...

    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    I think they did a good job. If it's "better" than the design of the current model, I can't say so far, but it surely doesn't look worse. kiss

    an update that improves .. not always the case with other manufacturers


    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    The rear is SO MUCH BETTER!! Just look at the above comparison - gone is the slab-like but that everybody hated so much! Also the the headlights are very nice!

    GOOD JOB, Porsche!


    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    LWB version for Middle and Far East markets no doubt ..

    can't have been cheap to put into production


    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    Finally. FINALLY.

    One note: I think the "floating" DRL/indicator light on the non-Turbo models is an aesthetic failure. Makes the front too busy, they would've done MUCH better by integrating it into the top end of the intake.

    Other than that, smooth back; I like the crease in the tailgate instead of the chrome strip on the 970, but I'm worried about that black plastic diffuser and the way it harmonizes into the design of the rear...

    Meh. I really like it, but I'd be a lying if I didn't say a part of me expected a bit more tying up of loose ends.

    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    I am very mixed on this.  It looks like the new S class might be more car for the buck.  400+HP from 3.0TT engine is amazing btw!  Why can't they couple a nice engine with an electric motor?  Why is it always the entry level petrol engine that they use?!

    2012 Cayenne TT, looking for a nice 4-seater sports car to answer my call :)

    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    Looks good on the pictures.  GTS (which remains a 8 cylinder) will be presented in October with 440 HP (+10 HP). Heard this one from local Porsche.

    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    What about Turbo S?


    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    I bet that Porsche will charge another 10k for that +10hp on the GTS broken heart

    Still don't like the Pana, to me the best looking 500hp+ sedan out there is the E63 AMG (4matic optional) kiss


    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    I like the front, the turbo front is even great - the rear looks strange. Maybe I have to see in flash.

    The rear reminds me on VW Golf 6 - am I drunken??

    That rear bumper sticking out looks like an after thought.

    Wait, IT IS an after thought...


    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    Main observations from my side:

    • Good idea to take the VW approach to the headlight cluster redesign :-S
    • Wow, so now even I as a Porsche afficionado can't see the difference between the pre-facelift and the post-facelift models anymore...

    I know it sounds a bit negative, guess that opinion will change over time when I have seen it in the flesh, but generally, I am not impressed at all by this facelift.

    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    Sorry, but I do not understand as a regular panamera engine can be much more than a Panamera S. I sincerely by a twin-turbo 3.0 nonpayment over 120,000 euros. All I get is to sell more units of 3.6 and the GTS. Every day I understand less the Porsche brand.

    Happy Driving

    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    Thanks Ron!

    Car is already ugly, why make it longer and uglier enlightened

    S vs 4S


    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

     I don't see a difference....- big chance missed is my resume....- I usually like evolution - but this is way to conservative...


    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    I love the long version. But don't like the new front of the non Turbo models


    --


    Re: Panamera Facelift...according to latest info, not in 2012

    I find this a successful makeover of a cumbersome, awkward rear. Given the constraints imposed by the original design the design team did a very good job with this facelift. kiss

    The car is more well-proportioned, sleeker and tidier now.

    The new design together with the powerful and frugal V6 turbo engines, the plug-in hybrid and the long wheelbase option will regenerate interest in the Panamera.

    Really? I doubt it. Smiley
