Porsche's new MSB sedan platform details


Much like VAG, Porsche has developed a new platform that will be shared out among the family's brands. Named “Modularer Standardantrieb-Baukasten” (Modular Standard Platform) or MSB, this setup is for a front-engine / rear-wheel drive layout with optional all-wheel drive.

This will be used for the new third generation Panamera and also rumored for the Bentley Continental, Audi A9, and soon to be Lamborghini sedan. Also, this new layout for the Panamera will reduce the overall weight by 200 pounds.
