Porsche Panamera Spied in Spain
( Worldcarfans ) - Finally one of our spy photographers was able to get up close and somewhat personal with the upcoming 4-dour coupe by Porsche, the Porsche Panamera. At last we can bring you with some new details about the much anticipated car.
The caught prototype is far less camouflaged than any of the earlier test cars and clearly shows the front air intakes (photo 4: close up shot of blue Panamera). From these new photos a computer generated image was created which might just be a close resemblance to the final product.
