The Porsche Panamera has been around for a few years now, and that means it's about ready for the standard mid-cycle nip and tuck. Our spy photographers caught the German sports sedan wearing a dab of camouflage to cover up a few of the updated facial features, especially around the forward lighting areas.

The updated Panamera should wear a face in line with the new 991 Porsche 911. That means you're sure to see updated headlamps and new LED daytime running lamps, and the lower fascia will get a minor workout as well. Out back, this test car wears the standard Panamera rear end, however, we believe a camo-covered version should arrive in the coming weeks.

      I think the simplest way of improving the rear end is a different tail light design that doesn't put the indicators on the outboard part of the light. I never thought the overall design of the car was that bad, it was just some little details like that one and the headlights that made the car look less like a typical Porsche. The reason they made the roof line that way was indeed to mimic the 911 rear end, but with 4 doors. Had they made the rear end more rakish, this would be an even longer car than it already is!

        I forgot to add, I think it's more a problem with the rising window line than the falling roof line.

          I'd like to see them connect the taillights in the fashion of a 996 C4S because it would also help a bit with the visual bulk of the back end. Could not agree more that the rising line of the rear window is the most incongruous line that the car has because it adds mass at precisely the spot where the stylists should have tried to hide it the most. The front looks like it has a chance to be more tidy and resolved. I'm curious to see how Porsche creates a non-Carrera corporate face.

      I think it look 110% better with the light looking like they do with the camo on. Hey Porsche, leave those headlights as they are!!

      That picture reminds me of a 612 Scaglietti.

      Porsche usually nails it the second time around. Look at the Cayenne for example.

      No need for a facelift, needs an asslift.

      this abomination will need more than a face lift to look good

      This is Porsche's version of a 1974 Dodge Station wagon right? HOT.

      Fix the ass that looks like a Crossfire, which is second only to the PT doucher or maybe the new Ferrari with respect to ugliest cars ever.
