Introduction

What Car? says...

The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is a bit of a strange chimera, really. The regular Panamera already splices the DNA of a luxury saloon, coupe and a hatchback with a few strands of sports car, and the Sport Turismo chucks a bit of estate car into the mix, too.

Now, this isn’t some fuddy-duddy squared-off wagon, instead it’s a ‘shooting brake’ that sacrifices space at the altar of style. That means it’s not as spacious as a ‘proper’ full size estate like a Mercedes E-Class, but its longer tail better deals with bulkier items than a regular Panamera or a Taycan, a Mercedes CLS or AMG GT 4-door Coupé . 

That’s quite a diverse spread of rivals, and the Panamera Sport Turismo range itself is broad enough to take them all on, in both price and power. There’s no such thing as a slow version; power ranges from a relatively modest 325bhp in the entry-level 4, right up to a staggering 671bhp in the Turbo S E-Hybrid. Speaking of E-Hybrids, this designation marks out a couple of plug-in hybrid choices that have rather appealing BIK tax rates for company car users.

Because it’s designed to work as a driver’s car, we’ll tell you just how fast the Sport Turismo is and how well it gets around a corner. And as it has to fulfil the everyday car remit, too, we’ll explore how comfy, spacious and luxurious it is over the next few pages. The small matter of cost will be addressed, too, and remember that you can buy a Sport Turismo and plenty of others through our New Car Buying pages. If there’s a discount to be had on any new car, you’ll find it there.
