VIDEO: Semi-naked Panamera caught in the wild

This might be a week old, but it's still worth mentioning in case you haven't seen it yet. A video of a Porsche Panamera doing some testing was posted on MotorAuthority and popped up on Auto Play as well. In it, you see the Porsche sedan sans most of its disguise cladding, being put through its paces. And better yet, you can hear it, too. As we have said before, we expect the new Porsche to be available with your choice of everything from a hybrid V6 to a twin-turbo V8 underhood.

The sound of the car under throttle can be heard at a few points and it has a wonderfully deep growl. We'd guess it's the V8, if pressed. Porsche recently told the world that the Panamera we've been seeing in spy photos (and videos) isn't necessarily the final form, perhaps deflecting some criticism of the rather awkward shape. A production version isn't expected to be unveiled until the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, so there will likely be a lot of changes between now and then.

Thanks for reminding us about this, Serge!
