Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo – Another Cool Wagon


Wagons, wagons, everywhere…!
I recently wrote about the slowly building coolness of wagons.  SUVs have been selling like hotcakes, but all of a sudden, the forgotten long-roofed sedans are reemerging, with slick engineering and eye pleasing design. 

In my previous article, I touched on new entrants from Mercedes, Volvo and BMW.  Now another German has decided to throw a hat in the ring!
Porsche

If I may introduce the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo.  Sport Turismo apparently being Porsche-speak for “wagon”. 
Sure…

What we have is the beautiful new generation Panamera adding an elongated roofline, increasing that all important storage space for those in need of a bit more utility in your Panamera.  There are currently 4 models you can spec:  the Panamera 4 Sport Turismo with all-wheel drive, the 4S Sport with a bit more power, the 4 E-Hybrid Sport with electricity, and the top of the line, peel-your-face-off fast Turbo Sport.  Motivation for the models start with a 330 hp V6 in the 4 Sport up to a thundering 550 hp from a 4.0 liter V8 in the Turbo model. 
Other equipment levels essentially mirror that of the standard Panamera counterpart.  You’ll find the same well-done interior and various available go-fast hardware bits.  As with all Porsche models, the level of specification will only be dictated by your wallet, not your imagination.

Pricing starts at $96,200 up to $154,000 for the coveted Turbo.  Expect to see a two-wheel drive base model arrive within the year, likely priced close to the 90K mark.
Wagons indeed…!
