Although it isn’t due to arrive Stateside until 2017, the next-generation Porsche Panamera keeps losing camouflage with each public appearance. We made contact with some of the sedan’s new exterior features in January 2015, when the Panamera traveled to Sweden for some cold winter testing, and now we stumbled across a new video showing the car with far less camouflage stuck to its body.

Unfortunately, the footage showing a black Panamera passing quite fast in front of the camera is not too revealing. But while small details may be hard to distinguish, the short clip does confirm that the next-gen sedan is both sportier and more elegant than its predecessor. A closer look also reveals beefier wheel arches, a reshaped C-pillar, and what appears to be a longer rear door.

What you can’t see in the video but we already know for a fact is that the second-gen Panamera rides on Volkswagen’s MSB platform, which enabled Porsche engineers to make the new sedan about 200 pounds lighter than the outgoing model. Under the hood, look for an array of six-cylinder engines, a newly developed, twin-turbo V-8, and an updated hybrid drivetrain. What’s still a mystery is whether the Panamera GTS will continue with a naturally aspirated mill or not.

Keep it locked here for more details, we’ll be right back as soon as we have them.
