While the teaser is pretty vague, only giving us a quick look at the roof, keen-eyed spotters in Europe have managed to spot a prototype at a petrol station revealing much more of the new design.

Two images, from Autojunk, show the front and rear of the 2017 model. There is some camouflage around the finer details, such as the headlights, front grille, and the new-look slimline taillights, but the body is pretty much revealed.

You can see the new Panamera will showcase a much more defined body, with sharper contours and lines, while carrying over an evolved version of the side slits behind the front wheels. There’s also some new alloy wheel designs going on.
