Porsche's Panamera wagon likely won't arrive in the U.S. for two years or so, but it's already making appearances at the Nürburging wearing very little camo. The second-generation Panamera sedan is expected to premiere at the Paris Motor Show this fall, with the highly-anticipated wagon variant to follow not too long afterwards.
This spy video, posted to YouTube by , features what sounds like both a V6- and a V8-powered Panamera wagon testing on the Nordschleife. By the looks of things, Porsche will replace the current Panamera's sorta-wagon-fastback design with more and wagon body variants.
It looks like the wagon testing in this video has camouflage covering up a back window extending nearly all the way to the rear hatch, like the Panamera Sport Turismo Concept that debuted in 2012. The new Panamera will ride on a new Volkswagen Group platform called MSB, which will also underpin future models from Bentley and Lamborghini.
We're very much into the idea of a Panamera wagon, because it would offer the practicality of the Cayenne in a (presumably) better-driving package. We're not entirely sure why Porsche wants to build a wagon at all, let alone sell it in the U.S., but we're not about to complain.
