2017 Porsche Panamera Likely To Be Powered By New V6 And V8 Engines (Video)

The 2017 Porsche Panamera could be powered by new V6 and V8 engines after two mules were spied during tests at the Nürburgring in Germany—the exhaust notes betraying the pedigree of the motors.

Earlier this year, there were rumors that Porsche were developing brand new V6 and V8s for the second generation Panamera, which is slated to be released in the second half of 2016. Sources say, the 2017 Panamera will be offered in both rear- and all-wheel drive versions, for both the V6 and V8 engines.

The car will use the MSB platform, which translates to less curb weight compared to the current model thanks to increased use of aluminum and high-strength steels. The current model (Panamera Turbo) weighs 4,343 lbs (1,970 kg).

Porsche is also reportedly considering adding two-door and soft/hard top versions to the new generation Panamera, but not during launch time.
