The Panamera isn’t going to win any awards for the most beautiful car in Porsche’s rich history. Yes, it does have come a long from its initial phase and looks much better these days. Still, it’s not among the finest looking cars in Porsche’s current lineup. Cut to 2017 Geneva Motor Show and we have something which may have a shot of being a sensational-looking Porsche – the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo.
Retaining everything that made the design study such a big hit four and a half years ago, the production model adopts the beloved Shooting Brake style roofline. Porsche has added a rear roof spoiler too, so that the downforce demanded by the new shape is delivered. In addition to making the car look sportier, the Shooting Brake design also adds a lot of room inside for stowing your luggage. The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo can seat more people too. Nope, we aren’t hinting at the existence of any awkwardly-placed seats in the luggage bay. It’s the rear seating area which gets the added passenger space as the design now facilitates seats for three compared to the seats for two arrangement that’s available in standard Panamera.
The US market will be getting the car in four configurations by the end of the year – Panamera 4, Panamera 4S, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, and Panamera Turbo. Prices have also been declared with tags of $97,250 for the Panamera 4 Sport Turismo, $105,050 for the 4 E-Hybrid, $110,250 for the 4S, and $155,050 for the Turbo. Porsche assures that the performance numbers will be similar to each variant’s standard Panamera counterpart.
