If you want to get spy shots of vehicles that will soon be showing up in European dealerships, the place to be every year from December to March is the area near the Arctic Circle in Sweden. One person of apparently hardy stock captured a pair of Porsche Panamera prototypes heading out to a frozen lake for some more testing. We've all seen stills of the Panamera on the Nordschliefe, but now you can see (and hear) the car in full motion video.

      This car will re-invent the 4 door sportscar,in a way the Mercedes-Benz AMG E class and the BMW M5 haven't yet.It will be in a class by itself.

      Ok guys, settle down.

      This is a prototype with heavy camouflage. Just because it's painted the same colour as the reast of the car, doesn't mean it's not there. Just check the older Panamera pictures from the Nürburgring. The whole back of the car is hidden under tacked on camouflage.

      Seems like it's front-engine.if that's the case,this could eventually be made into many different styles.2 door 2 plus 2 .2 door mercedes SL competitor etc.

      That ain't a freakin' porsche. Even an average joe on the street (not an autoblog reader) will able to tell a Porsche apart from every other make. This car doesn't have any of that. It looks like just another euro 4-door.

      While the paneling that is supposed to disguise the car is fugly, I can't wait to finally see Porsche's first honest attempt at a four-door.

      It's gonna be awesome, no doubt.

      I keep telling myself this can't be the real car. The debut is still a ways off, and there is no camo....they have made no attempt to disguise the car. I want to believe that what we are seeing IS the disguise, but who knows.

      With several truly beautiful high-end performance sedans available now, this thing is gonna have to get an extreme makeover.

      It looks like the bastard child of a RX-8 and the new benz s-classes. Still me likey

      Dear God that makes me wince. Twice.

      Handle-less doors. Please.

      And the PBR 12-pack box on its side spoiler needs to be nixed prontito.

      I fear for Porsche this day, my friends. FEAR!

      Would take an M5 over this. Wait a minute, already have an M5 ;)

      Porsche pretty much mastered the 911, its good to see them expand their lineup... smart business move, especially since the Rapide is set to come out soon :)
      PS... I believe that was an S550 not a 500... the minibach.

      It's amazinig how stupid most people are. First they bash the car at how ugly it is and then when the car is out, they change their minds!
      This car looks cool. Only stupid people don't appreciate it. Probably because you can't afford it.

      I agree, you guys are retarded. Porsche is expanding their customer base by making SUV's and now a four door that live up to the expectations that go with their name: obnoxious amounts of speed, high performance, nice interiors and good looks. This is a smart business decision by them and I think it will turn out to be a great car.

      P.S. I love how the spy camera crew gets cut off by a S500 at the end of that shot!
