Last month, we reported on Porsche's plan for their lineup up to 2016. One part of the plan that was talked about was a heavy refresh of the Panamera for 2013. Car has uncovered some new information about the refresh and what could be expected.
Sources who have seen the refresh say its changed so much, it almost looks like a new car.
Also, it appears some changes are coming to the Panamera's powertrain lineup. The Panamera 4S will drop its current 4.8L V8 producing 400 HP and go for a twin-turbo 3.0L V6 producing somewhere in the range of 420 HP. Its unsure if the Panamera S will follow suit.
There is also talk about the Panamera getting Audi's V8 TDI engine. The V6 diesel Panamera is doing well in Europe. And before you ask, the answer is no for the U.S..
