Shooting brake styled Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo bows

02.03.2017

Following on from the second generation Panamera launched earlier this year, Porsche has now unveiled the so-called shooting brake version dubbed the Sport Turismo.

Based on the normal Panamera but utilising a 4+1 seating layout, the Turismo shares its sedan sibling's 5 049 mm overall length, 2 950 mm wheelbase and 1 937 mm width, but with a five millimetre increase in height for a total of 1 428 mm. According the Porsche, this means a overall boot space capacity of 520-litres in regular model and 425-litres in the E-Hybrid, and up to 1 390 and 1 295-litres respectively with the 40:20:40 split rear seat folded down.

Boasting completely new sheet metal from the B-pillar on, the Sport Turismo features an industry first extendable roof mounted spoiler Porsche claims generates 50 kg of additional rear downforce. Part of the Turismo's Active Aerodynamics, the spoiler stays retracted at speeds up to 170 km/h with a angle of minus seven degrees, but moves automatically by one degree when the speedometer climbs higher.

With Sport or Sport Plus modes activated, the spoiler deploys from 90 km/h, additionally helping to minimise wind noise when the panoramic roof its opened.

Engine choice are unchanged from the sedan with the five model range consisting of the 3.0-litre bi-turbo V6 Panamera 4 (243 kW / 330 N.m), the 2.9-litre bi-turbo V6 4S (324 kW / 550 N.m), the 4S Diesel with a 4.0-litre twin-turbo 310 kW / 850 N.m V8, the 2.9-litre E-Hybrid with a combined output of 340 kW and 700 N.m, and the flagship 4.0-litre V8 Turbo with 404 kW and 700 N.m.

Sales in Europe commence on October 7th with prices in Germany starting at €97 557 (R1 342 078) for the Panamera 4, and ending at €158 604 (R2 181 894) for the Turbo.
