Welcome the new Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo range – including the Panamera 4 Sport Turismo, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo and Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo – the first Panamera to sport the “shooting brake” layout.
The Panamera 4 Sport Turismo comes with a V6 petrol engine with 330 hp and 450 Nm while the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo with a V6 biturbo petrol engine and an electric motor produces 462 hp and 700 Nm. The most powerful model in the range is the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo with a V8 biturbo engine producing 550 hp and 770 Nm.
Performance wise, the Panamera 4 Sport Turismo takes just 5.5 seconds to 100 km/h from standstill (5.3 with the Sport Chrono Package), the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo just 4.6 seconds and the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo just 3.8 seconds (3.6 with the Sport Chrono Package). Top speed is 259 km/h for the Panamera 4, 275 km/h for the E-Hybrid and 304 km/h for the Turbo model.
Power is channeled to all four wheels with an 8-speed PDK gearbox with rear-wheel steering, Porsche Traction Management (PTM), Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) and adaptive air suspension with the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM).
On the outside, the Sport Turismo has been redesigned from the B-pillar onwards to the rear. At the tailgate is a active rear spoiler as part of the Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) which can be raised to three different positions.
At speed over 170 km/h, the spoiler goes into “Performance” position and if the optional panoramic roof is opened, the roof spoiler changes its angle to minimise wind noise. The roof spoiler can be controlled via the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system.
Measuring at over five metres long, the Sport Turismo does not lack any presence. As standard, 19-inch wheels are fitted onto the base model Panamera 4 and the E-Hybrid, while the Turbo variant gets a 20-inch set. Optional 21-inch wheels can be specified. The main headlights are LED units with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), with an LED pair at the rear as well.
Inside the Sport Turismo is the first Panamera to feature three rear seats, with an optional four seat configuration. Other standard equipment include the Porsche Advanced Cockpit and a 12.3-inch touchscreen display that recognises hand writings and is operated with touch gesture controls while the rear gets two 10-inch screens for air conditioning controls.Driver assistance systems available include Night View Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Change Assist and Lane Keeping Assist. The Panamera 4 Sport Turismo is priced at RM990,000, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo at RM 1,125,000 and the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo at RM 1,940,000 on-the-road before insurance and options.
As with all Porsches sold through Sime Darby Auto Performance, the Panamera Sport Turismo will be safeguarded by a four-year warranty and a free maintenance package with complimentary service, parts and labour.
