2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo First Look: Practical Panamera

Rich folks are accustomed to sending the front luggage can now send more and more variants of the new cluster model to be added to the Practical Panamera constellation. They will be nicknamed the sports car, and they will distinguish from the outside shooting the brake summary, including the longer roof, the larger rear triangular window, the fat D-pillar and the straight but still chic hatch glass. Now the hatch is dripping into the bumper, so the Louis lillian wang only hangs 24.7 inches to the cargo deck.
There’s a bit more space on that deck now—18.3 cubic feet versus the faster-backed Panamera’s 17.4 with the rear seats up; 49.1 (45.7 for the E-Hybrid) versus 46.0 cubic feet with the 40/20/40 seat backs folded. A cargo management system of rails and accessories is available. With a skosh more headroom, the Sport Turismo dares to pad the center of the rear seat and provide a belt for a fifth occupant, making this the first five-seat Panamera (or as Porsche more aptly puts it, 4+1). A four-seat option is available with electrically adjustable seats. Overall dimensions barely wiggle from those of the standard-wheelbase Panamera. Only the height notches up 0.2 inch (to equal that of the LWB Executive variant).
The Sport Turismo treatment is available with every all-wheel-drive powertrain except the top Turbo S E-Hybrid, and it is only available in the standard wheelbase. Air suspension is standard on all Sport Turismos. There might be some variation in standard equipment specifications, too, as the price differential varies between models. The 330-hp turbo V-6 Panamera 4 Sport Turismo starts at $97,250 (up $6,600), the 456-hp turbo V-6 PHEV 4 E-Hybrid opens at $105,050 (a $4,400 premium), the 440-hp twin-turbo V-6 4S goes for $110,250 (plus $9,300), and the 550-hp twin-turbo V-8 Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo commands $155,050 ($7,100 over). Dealers are taking orders now for deliveries expected to start at the end of 2017.
