Currently reading: New Porsche Panamera pictures leaked ahead of official unveiling
Leaked pictures of Porsche's second-generation Panamera have appeared online, showing the new car inside and out

These are the first leaked images of the new Porsche Panamera, rival to the Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS. Pictures of the second-generation Panamera have appeared online and on social media ahead of the car's official unveiling.

The new Panamera is due to make its first public outing at the Paris motor show this October and it has previously been teased through design sketches and videos. These pictures show that the new Panamera is a design evolution of its predecessor. As expected, the new car's styling draws heavily on the 718 Boxster, with a similar front spoiler and air intake treatment.

These leaked images also show the Panamera's interior. The old car's instrument cluster appears to have been replaced by two separate screens flanking an analogue rev counter. It's higly likely that these screens will be configurable by the driver and they should be able to show navigation and infotainment data. A second image shows the car's rear seats, which appear to have their own infotainment screen and far fewer buttons than in the old car.

Porsche is underpinning the new Panamera with its MSB platform, which is capable of supporting both rear and all-wheel drive layouts. The Panamera's engine range is expected to comprise an all-new range of V6 and V8 engines – and one of these leaked images confirms a 4.0-litre turbocharged V8 petrol option. A new version of the Panamera S E-Hybrid is also expected.

Porsche is known to have spent a lot of time reducing the weight of the new Panamera. The template for the new car is based on the latest 991 series of the Porsche 911, which incorporates different material types to reduce the car's kerb weight. In the Panamera, these weight-saving measures are said to keep the car's kerb weight at between 1800kg and 1900kg, despite a vast array of new technology inside. By comparison, the current Panamera weighs 1845kg in entry-level form.

The new Panamera is expected to go on sale late this year. There's no official word on pricing yet, but the current car costs from £63,913.

Record breaker?

This must be one of the biggest if not the biggest 4 seaters on the market. I'm surprized Porsche don't offer the option, maybe they will judging by the number of negative comments regarding this aspect. Will always be a big ugly porker though!

I think either make this a 5

I think either make this a 5-seater or make it narrower as a 4-seater. The 1st generation is very wide indeed.

The words you are looking for are 'officially released'

Not 'leaked'. Just who do you think you are kidding? If they really were 'leaked' then I'm sure you would be dragged in as witnesses to an official inquiry to explain just how you managed to obtain such sensitive material. So stop it. On the car - WOW, much better looking than previous. Looks like a stretched 911 which is no bad thing. Well done Porka.
