An all new model of Porsche's luxurious Panamera five-door is set to make its debut at next year’s Paris Motor Show.

The new Panamera will see the the somewhat cumbersome styling of the current model disposed of, instead adopting styling cues from Porsche's Panamera Sport Turismo Concept, and the more recent Mission E.

Beneath the svelte bodywork the Panamera will roll on the the Volkswagen Group’s modular MSB platform,developed by Porsche, but to be shared with the Bentley Continental and Flying Spur.

Power for the next-gen Panamera will come from a tweaked version of the 3.0 litre twin turbo V6 found in the current Panamera 4S.

V8 versions will run a new 4.0 litre twin turbo engine, usurping the current 4.8 litre V8, with an expected output as high as 450kW in top-spec Turbo S guise, comfortably eclipsing the current model’s 419kW output.

A choice of 3.0 litre V6 and 4.0 litre V8 turbo diesels will also be available, with outputs of around 245kW and 335kW respectively.

New hybrid variants will offer greater electric-only driving range, and lower fuel consumption, head by an Audi-developed 2.9 litre twin turbo V6 pushing out 245kW or a 4.0 litre V8 hybrid that delivers a combined output of 355kW.

As with the existing Panamera, a range of rear and all wheel drive models will be offered, depending on drivetrain and specification.

As previewed by the Mission E concept, the interior of the Panamera is set to undergo a radical overhaul, clearing the button-heavy layout of the current version, and instead offering a dual-touchscreen interface.
