The second generation Porsche Panamera has made a comeback in a new batch of spy shots taken during winter testing.

The second generation Porsche Panamera has made a comeback in a new batch of spy shots taken during winter testing.

Porsche applied disguise only on the headlights and taillights which come with some stickers showing a faux design to hide the real deal. Other than that, the Panamera appears to be camo-free and will adopt an evolutionary design up front showing very few changes compared to the outgoing model.

The most significant tweaks are noticeable at the back which appears to be less "fat." Don’t let the big stickers fool you because the taillights are not that wide, as noticeable in one of the attached pics where the prototype is braking.

Styling aside, the second-gen Panamera will be significantly different from a technical point of view than its predecessor as it’s bound to ride on the MSB platform which should grant a weight loss of up to 91 kg (200 lbs). Newly developed turbo V6 and V8 are also in the cards and will be offered with both RWD and AWD.

Following the standard model's introduction in 2016, Porsche could decide to launch a handful of derivatives, including a Sport Turismo model in the same vein as the namesake concept from 2012 Paris Motor Show. Coupe and convertible versions are also considered but nothing is official at this point.
