The 2016 Porsche Panamera is readied to share its underpinnings and body style with the third-generation Bentley Continental when it’s launched in the coming years. This architecture will certainly take the shape of the Volkswagen Group’s front engine, rear wheel drive MSB system.
2016 Porsche Panamera Platform
Porsche for example, said to have its own variation of the MSB platform because of its different vibrant requirements contrasted to claim, top-of-the-range Audi sedans. The 2016 Porsche Panamera and new Bentley Continental will showcase a drivetrain placed near the front bulkhead and within the auto’s wheelbase.
The brand-new Volkswagen MSB system will integrate a selection of high-strength and lightweight products including a mix of aluminium and steel. Through the weight savings found in this brand-new platform, Porsche is aiming for a moderate weight reduction compared to the facelifted 2014 Porsche Panamera.
As a result of the continuous success of the Porsche Panamera, Porsche will remain true to the 4 low-mounted seat system and a sweeping roofline. The low-mounted seats serve to reduce the Panamera’s center of gravity and benefit handling and Porsche is set to maintain a comparable set-up for the facelifted 2016 Porsche Panamera.
