Before you stands a sports car. One that puts into action everything you need to get ahead. In your job. In your everyday life. In-tray full of projects? Places you've always wanted to visit? Sporty goals unfulfilled? Let's go.
Accept, implement, perform. That is the principle of the Panamera Sport Turismo. A car characterised by unequivocal sportiness, excellent everyday practicality and a design that sets new standards not only at Porsche. A segment? Doesn't fit in one. And certainly not a niche. It would much rather conquer the road directly.
Driven by a new generation of highpowered engines. The courage to defy conventions drives it forwards. A genuine Porsche? An atypical Panamera? The new Panamera Sport Turismo is defined, primarily, by itself.
Made for those who don't wait to be told what to do next. For all those who have the courage to get up and go. Preferably straight away.
The new Panamera Sport Turismo. Venture on.
The new Sport Turismo models precisely encapsulate the Panamera principle: performance and comfort are not contradictory notions, but a single entity. Neither are dynamics and efficiency – our engineers strive to enhance both in equal measure.
That's all well and good but, in Sport Turismo form, the new Panamera goes one step further, not only in terms of design. Instead of seeking compromises, it manages in unrivalled style to strike a dynamic balance between career, family, leisure time and driving pleasure. 4+1 seating concept. Generous head and legroom. Substantial load capacity – for presentation folders, for the carbon-fibre race bike, for your travel luggage. Or for that meeting with a special VIP: you.
Chassis control systems, such as Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) or rear-axle steering, intensify the driving experience – and safety. Assistance systems, such as Porsche InnoDrive, make it safer and more relaxing. Thanks to Porsche Connect, all Panamera Sport Turismo models are connected to the digital world. Just what you need when you're on a journey to the future.
The most powerful driving force of all time? Dreams. And the courage to make them a reality.
Let's start with the aspect of a Porsche that always attracts the most attention: the back. The rear end displays a wide physique and is clearly contoured, with all lines emphasising the horizontal orientation of the vehicle concept. The newly refined, higher roof line falls away to the rear, the large-size rear side windows narrow to a point. Nevertheless, passengers in the second row still have plenty of room to get in. A sports car: sharp, agile, contemporary.
Extraordinary describes the adaptive roof spoiler above the expansive rear screen. At high speeds, it reduces lift at the rear axle and helps to ensure outstanding driving stability, high performance and greater driving pleasure.
Conspicuous, in the best sense of the word, describes the light strip on the rear end and the three-dimensionally shaped LED taillights with four-point brake lights. Characteristic of the stylish look commanded by the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo are the imposing Turbo-specific twin tailpipes. The S models are equipped with round twin tailpipes, the Panamera 4 models with a single tailpipe on the right and left.
The fact that stylish design and everyday practicality are not mutually exclusive is demonstrated by the large rear hatch and the low loading edge, which makes it easier to integrate more than just everyday things into the Panamera Sport Turismo – and your life. Above all the sports car has an extraordinary capacity of up to 1,390 litres.
The rear of a sports car boasts sporty attitude. The front and sides, however, reveal a lot about the vehicle concept's elegance and contouring.
From this perspective, the proportions of the new Panamera Sport Turismo models are above all: Porsche. The eye is drawn to clearly perceived rounded transitions, powerful muscles and a sharpened sports car silhouette.
The wheelbase is long. At the front, the overhang is comparatively short, which reinforces the dynamic impression. The side has been intensely sculpted, resulting in the characteristic Porsche waistline and sense of lightness.
An identifying feature of the new Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo: the side air outlets in the front wings are finished in the exterior colour of the car. They underline – along with the distinctive front end featuring characteristic front light units – the dominant position that the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo maintains.
A hallmark of all Panamera models: LED main headlights with four-point daytime running lights, supplemented on the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo by the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS).
The Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo is further distinguished by 20-inch Panamera Turbo wheels and brake calipers with a red finish. The power of the Panamera 4S Sport Turismo models is delivered to the road by 19-inch Panamera S wheels. Behind them: brake calipers in Titanium Grey. The Panamera 4 and Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo are equipped with 19-inch Panamera wheels. The brake calipers on the former have a black anodised finish, while those of the E-Hybrid are painted in Acid Green.
The interior design leads the way to the future of the sports car – and nevertheless remains faithful to classic Porsche principles. The centre console ascends towards the front, the analogue rev counter is positioned in the middle of the instrument cluster, the dashboard is flat and conspicuously wide.
The control concept is cutting edge with Porsche Advanced Cockpit. In between the compact gear selector is the centre console, which features touch sensitive buttons for direct access to the most important functions.
The dashboard incorporates a highresolution 12-inch touchscreen display.
In conjunction with optional four-zone automatic climate control and individual power seats in the rear, the rear passengers also have a touchscreen display of their own. Two high-resolution screens, one to the right and one to left of the rev counter, display virtual instruments, maps and a range of other information.
Above all, though, there is plenty of space and comfort. Front and rear. Not so typical of a sports car? Absolutely typical of the Panamera model range.
In Sport Turismo form, it now incorporates a 4+1 seating concept as standard so that a fifth person can enjoy the Panamera driving experience. Although not designed as a full-size individual seat, the extra space does provide a neat solution for carrying an additional passenger on short to medium distance trips. And, visually, it maintains the impression of a sporty four-seater – typical of the Panamera. On request, you can revert to the ‘classic’ four-seat configuration if you choose optional individual power seats for the rear.
Thanks to the higher roof line, passengers seated in the rear of the Sport Turismo also benefit from some extra headroom.
“That's the way we've always done it.” Not really a sentence to inspire change. Except at Porsche. That's because we've always made each new generation of engines higher-performing, more dynamic and more efficient than the last.
The turbocharged V6 engine in the Panamera 4 Sport Turismo, the twin-turbo V6 engines in the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo and Panamera 4S Sport Turismo, and the twin-turbo V8 engine in the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo are equipped with VarioCam Plus: a system that adjusts the camshafts and valve lift. Their turbochargers are positioned in between the cylinder banks. This reduces the distance that the exhaust stream has to travel to reach the respective turbo – delivering a more rapid response.
The twin-turbo V8 engine of the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo is equipped with twin-scroll turbines. The exhaust streams arrive at the turbine wheel through physically separate channels – for optimised gas cycles. The result: high torque even in the low rpm range.
The adaptive cylinder control of the twinturbo V8 engine activates cylinders on demand. An example: You're driving in town and have little need for power, so the engine fires only on four cylinders. Once you demand greater power output again, all cylinders will immediately be reactivated.
Direct fuel injection is realised by a central injector inside the combustion chamber. This optimises both mixture injection and combustion – for greater efficiency and increased power delivery.
In the Panamera 4S Diesel Sport Turismo, a twin-turbo V8 diesel engine with direct fuel injection and variable turbine geometry gives you a rapid response and high power output across the entire engine speed range – combined with a very high level of efficiency.
On the subject of high efficiency: all engines are purposefully equipped with electrical system recuperation, thermal management, auto start/stop with coasting function and active air intake flaps. And driving pleasure? Greater than ever.
Whether you're behind the wheel or occupying a passenger seat in the front or rear: in a Porsche, every drive should feel like sport, not transport. With comfort, not cosy cuddles.
The chassis of the new Panamera Sport Turismo models performs this balancing act between sport and comfort effortlessly – and in the most masterful way possible: with further-developed, optional chassis technologies. Examples include the adaptive air suspension with three-chamber technology boasting a 60% greater air capacity than that of the predecessor, new Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) and rear-axle steering. What's also new is the integrated Porsche 4D Chassis Control system, which centrally analyses the driving situation in all three spatial dimensions, e.g. pitch, roll and yaw, computes optimum driving states from this data, and synchronises all chassis systems in real time: the fourth dimension. The objective is to optimise overall performance, and to make the middle ground between sporty driving and comfort as expansive as possible.
