Default omitting console buttons?

Hi everyone. I'm surprised that this topic hasn't been raised here yet: apparently Porsche might omit the center console buttons as seen in this spy shot of the new Panamera interior. I always thought that the Porsche center console made perfect sense with its buttons > one touch one function. This new style looks fine too, but at the moment I tend to be more impressed by the current center console functionality & looks in combination with the horseshoe buttons. Any thoughts?

Porsche is trudging down the same path as everyone else - touch screens and sub menus.
I think the new centre console looks dreadful, kinda Korean like

Doesn't seem like a very good design. You have to look away from the road to make sure you are hitting the right "button". Hopefully this is a shortlived design if it does come to market.

Seeing this makes me want to wait to see if a 2018 macan would have this setup. always preferred something like audi's MMI system...

I like the look of the new design. Personally I don't like the dead buttons on my console, every time I look at them I think about the options that my car doesn't have....

The new Cayenne better not have that space age looking center console. If I want a Japanesse looking center console I would buy a Lexus, Acura or Infiniti.

Wow that interior looks AMAZING (IMO). Sign me up! Looks like a luxe version of the 918 which can't be a bad thing. My only hesitation is Porsche continue to put the air vents in random locations that look less and less likely to be able to direct to your face!

Here's a close up of the 'control deck'. At least there will be no more blank buttons! Good for us poor optioners as opposed to @PygmyOctopus who's minted Macans have every button spot taken
