Features a wide array of displays and touch-sensitive buttons.
Based on reports of the 2017 Porsche Panamera as well as new spyshots, Autobild has created a rendering of the 4-door Porsche's interior.
The new Panamera will debut Porsche's new interior design philosophy which will influence all future models. Unlike the button-infested interior of the current Panamera, the successor will heavily rely on capacitive buttons and displays to offer a much cleaner layout. The gear selector has been made shorter, and stands on a floor console equipped with capacitive buttons.
Running across the dashboard is a wide display (~12 inches) that will run the latest Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system, as well as new displays flanking the analog tachometer. The steering wheel is similar in design to the new Porsche 911, and the Panamera Turbo variant will feature a circular dial on the steering wheel to alter driving modes. Another change to note is the presence of two giant cupholders on the floor console, instead of just one in the current model.
The next gen Porsche Panamera will be based on an all new MSB platform, and will be available in 4-door liftback and wagon bodystyles. The engine lineup will include new turbocharged V6 and V8 engines along with a S E-hybrid variant.
The 2017 Porsche Panamera is likely to make its world premiere at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in October.
