Expected to be launched in 2017.
Sometime next year, the second generation Porsche Panamera range is expected to see an addition of a shooting brake, which will essentially be the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo concept in production form. A speculative rendering from motor1 previews the production Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo.
The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo seen in the rendering looks more like a shooting brake version of the Porsche Mission E concept than the second-gen Porsche Panamera, although some cues may be borrowed from Zuffenhausen's first all-electric sports car concept. It won't rival with the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, but would certainly be a relatively less-expensive, mass-produced alternative for many.
The 2017 Porsche Panamera saloon was announced in three engine models: 324 kW (440 hp) 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol, 404 kW (550 hp) 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol and 310 kW (422 hp) 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 diesel. The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo will probably be offered with the same engines as the saloon it will be derived from.
The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is known to have been undergoing road tests since February this year and should be launched in Europe by mid-2017, followed by U.S. and more markets outside the old continent.
