Today the world was introduced to the first major redesign of the Porsche Panamera. Nice smooth lines front to back, with a retractable spoiler like a freaking badass robotic razor blade.

Porsche’s official description of the device as per the new car’s press release is, surprisingly reserved:

On the Panamera Turbo, the wing also splits as it extends, providing additional surface area.


You don’t say.

The basic execution and one-two stage foldout pretty much looks the same as the old Panamera but, somehow, better. In fact I never even noticed the original Panamera’s spoiler deployment but this one has me like, whoa.

Maybe it’s the apparently slightly sharper edge. Maybe it’s just the great lighting in that promotional video. But it might be my favorite design feature on an altogether beautiful new car.
