2017PorschePanameraSpy_(2_of_2)

Porsche’s next-generation Panamera (likely 2017) was spotted going through its paces in Colorado this week. The new car will be the first MSB platformed car for Porsche, which is expected to underpin more Stuttgart models — and perhaps the Bentley Flying Spur.

Two models were visible in Colorado, including what could have been a Panamera S with a large rear spoiler. (Pictures after the jump.)

The stopover in Colorado is usually one of the last powertrain tests a car will undergo before its final announcement. 

The two different tails can be seen below:

The lack of camouflage shows a sportier, sleeker shape, although the tail lamps and headlights were obscured by decals so we’ll have to wait for those details later.

Powering the Panamera could be a turbo six- or eight-cylinder engine as well as a plug-in hybrid variant (perhaps an all-electric version?).

Our friends over at Motor Authority have extensively photographed the car including the interiors.
