Incorporating elements from both the 911 and the Cayenne, the Panamera looks like it’s having a hard time pulling off the whole “four-door coupe” idea. The high window line makes it look bulky in profile, while the massive hatchback window does little to slim down the big rear end. We’ll assume for now that the car will look far more elegant when all the tape comes off, but for now the Panamera looks like it could take over from the Cayenne as the least attractive Porsche in the Stuttgart company’s lineup.
Three direct-injection gasoline engines are expected to be offered from the start of North American sales, which now look likely to begin in late 2009.
