Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo (2017–)
Porsche reveals Panamera Sport Turismo
The Panamera Sport Turismo comes in five different versions - Panamera 4, Panamera 4S, Panamera 4S Diesel, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and Panamera Turbo.
With a large tailgate, low loading edge, increased luggage compartment volume and a 4+1 seating concept, the new Panamera model offers the perfect combination of everyday usability and maximum flexibility.
These include the digital Porsche Advanced Cockpit, pioneering assistance systems such as Porsche InnoDrive, including adaptive cruise control, chassis systems such as rear axle steering, the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC Sport) electronic roll stabilisation system and powerful powertrains.
In addition, all Panamera Sport Turismo vehicles are equipped with Porsche Traction Management (PTM) – an active all-wheel drive system with electronically controlled multi-plate clutch – as standard. As of the S models, adaptive air suspension with three-chamber technology is also supplied as standard.
The vehicle is 5,049 millimetres long, 1,428 millimetres high and 1,937 millimetres wide, while the large wheelbase spans 2,950 millimetres. The silhouette is further characterised by short body overhangs and large wheels measuring up to 21-inches.
At the top of the vehicle, the roof extends into an adaptive spoiler. The angle of the roof spoiler is set in three stages depending on the driving situation and selected vehicle settings, and generates an additional downforce of up to 50 kg on the rear axle.
Up to a speed of 170 km/h, the aerodynamic guide element – a central system component of the Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) – stays in its retracted position with an angle of minus seven degrees, which reduces drag and thus optimises fuel consumption.
The new Sport Turismo is the first Panamera to feature three rear seats. The two outside seats take the form of individual seats – in keeping with the model line’s claim for sporty performance with maximum passenger comfort – thereby producing a 2+1 configuration at the rear. As an option, the Panamera Sport Turismo is also available in a four-seat configuration with two electrically adjustable individual seats at the rear.
Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid launched
T he Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo combines a 550PS 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine with a 136PS electric motor charged by a lithium-ion battery, resulting in a system power of 680PS.
The instantaneous response characteristics of the electric motor contribute to the Panamera developing 850 Nm of torque. And this translates most obviously in the sprint from zero to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds. Underlining the breadth of ability delivered by the hybrid powertrain is an average fuel consumption of over 97 mpg Combined in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), and a typical range of up to 31 miles using solely electric power.
The Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is available to order priced from £140,868 inc VAT RRP (including Panoramic roof system). Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC Sport) roll stabilisation, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) rear limited slip differential, the high-performance Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) system, 21-inch alloy wheels in distinctive 911 Turbo design, and the Sport Chrono Package are all fitted as standard. As with all Panamera Sport Turismo models that deliver more than 440PS, the new top model also features adaptive three-chamber air suspension including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM).
