At the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, one of the fastest gran turismos of all time celebrates its world debut. The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo uses the recognized strong technology of the sedan and combines it with a practical luggage compartment solution, which offers enough space for small and larger transport tasks. The third body variant of the second Panamera generation promises to be an unique offer, with its body shape and design approach.

The Sport Turismo sits on the same wheelbase as the standard car and is not an inch taller. The roof has been stretched out, to give it that wagon shape and it’s received a more proper tailgate. So now it’s more practical than ever.

Porsche gave the Sport Turismo an active wing in the rear, albeit on that isn’t nearly as cool as the standard car’s. Where as the standard Panamera’s wing lifts up and folds out in either direction, where as this one just flips up. Still, an active rear wing on a wagon is just downright cool.

As for powertrains, the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo will feature most of the same powertrain options as the regular car. There will be a 330 hp turbocharged V6 (Panamera 4), 440 hp twin-turbocharged V6 (Panamera 4S), a 550 hp twin-turbo V8 (Panamera Turbo) and a 462 hp hybrid (Panamera E-Hybrid).

Even the slowest Sport Turismo will run the standard spring in 5.5 seconds while the Turbo model with Sport Chrono package delivers a 0 to 62 mph time of 3.6 seconds.

In Europe, the entry-level model 4S costs at least 97,557 euros.
