The Sport Turismo, if put into production, will compete with cars like the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake and the Jaguar XF Sports Brake.

The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo concept uses a plug-in hybrid system which is an improved version of the one used in the current Panamera S and Cayenne S hybrid models. This new e-hybrid system uses the 333-horsepower, supercharged 3.0-liter V6 and a 95-hp electric motor (powered by a 9.4 kWh lithium-ion battery) for generating 416 horsepower (combined). The combined power is good for a 0-100 kph sprint time of under 6 seconds. The concept can also run at speeds upto 130 kph and cover 30-kilometer while using only electric power, however, not doing both simultaneously of-course By utilizing the car’s electric mode carefully, drivers of the Panamera Sport Turismo can realize fuel economy as high as 3.5 litres per/100km claims Porsche.

While the Panamera Sedan might be an eye sore for some hardcore 911 fans, the Sport Turismo may be liked more because of its rear three quarters looks. We quite liked the rear with its bold lines and integrated tail lamps. The front, however, is more reminiscent of the Panamera, but with design cues from the new 911. It sports a new lift gate and a sharper roofline that draw straight lines into the rear hatch. LED lightning is available in the headlamps with squared off four-pack of lights rather than round projectors.

The Panamera Sports Turismo’s interior features leather upholstery with metallic trim. The digital instrumentation cluster matches the sportiness of the car while the twin cameras on extreme side of the cluster are meant to replace the exterior mirror cameras.
