Porsche has joined the shooting brake market with the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2017. It was developed from the successful Paris Motor Show 2012 concept car and is slated to offer extra practicality with the option of a third rear seat and extra load capacity. We took a closer look at the display model!
The Panamera Sport Turismo offers a extra usability with a completely redesigned rear section and a higher roofline for easier entry and exit. Porsche claims a 520-litre storage capacity for the vehicle (425 litres for E-Hybrid models), which is 20 litres more than the Panamera saloon, however with the rear seats folded flat, the gains are as high as 50 litres.
The Sport Turismo bodystyle will be available with the same powertrain options as the standard Panamera sedan. That means there will be an entry-level Panamera 4 Sport Turismo with 330 hp, a Panamera 4 E-Hybrid with 462 hp, a Panamera 4S Diesel Sport Turismo with 422 hp and a Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo with 550 hp. Porsche’s 8-speed PDK automatic is used on all models.
