Porsche just publicly admitted that the design of the Porsche Panamera is not great. Matthias Mueller, Porsche’s CEO recently told Motoring that the design of the second-generation Panamera needs to improve significantly compared to the current model.
“There have been some small mistakes and we will do it better,” Mueller recently stated at the Paris Motor Show. “For example the design could be better.”
Porsche design chief Michael Mauer lead the design of the first Panamera and has also lead the design of the second-generation 2016 model. According to Mauer, the next-generation Panamera will be better looking, but will still have a polarizing design.
“I am sure a lot of people won’t like the design of the next generation. And that’s fine by me. I would prefer to have cars and products that polarize rather than being just okay. I think that’s the worst thing for a product. And the new Panamera I am sure there will still be people that don’t like it.”
Porsche provided a hint at the design of the next-generation Panamera with the Sport Turismo concept in 2012. The next Panamera will have a more coupe-like roofline compared to today’s version.
