Remember that Porsche Panamera Turbo prototype we caught last week wore something like an aero kit? Well, we have another scribble for you. The same prototype was seen again at the Nürburgring, except that this time it lacked the front bumper cliffs and actually hugged the road with minimal clearance.
The biggest change so far can be seen from the rear, where the prototype lacks the Turbo corner finishers. Instead, the actual exhaust system with its quadrangular tubes is noticeably longer than we are accustomed to and is aimed at the road. This probably means that Porsche has tested a modified engine, with our sources telling us that the Über-Panamera will receive 820 horsepower from a modernized configuration of an existing engine.
The 820 is a huge amount of power, especially if you consider the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid has only "670 hp". Whether this possible top-topper will also rely on electrification for now is unknown, but a stroke of 150hp. over the current flagship variant was approved by engineers during a conversation with spy photographers.
The crown jewel with 820 horsepower is rumored to arrive sometime in 2020, along with the Panamera lift line. Expect low production numbers and an exorbitant price tag that could easily surpass the $ 186,200 sticker on the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. This version has all the ingredients after the four-door Nürburgring, which is currently being challenged by the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 with four doors, but only two seats and the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S.  Mid-range upgrades may include not only hardcore iteration, but also a few two-door body style derivatives that evoke the spirit of the 928 and the one-off convertible 928.
