The new Sport Turismo models precisely encapsulate the Panamera principle: performance and comfort are not contradictory notions, but a single entity. Neither are dynamics and efficiency – our engineers strive to enhance both in equal measure.
That’s all well and good but, in Sport Turismo form, the new Panamera goes one step further, not only in terms of design. Instead of seeking compromises, it manages in unrivalled style to strike a dynamic balance between career, family, leisure time and driving pleasure with design features that inlcude 4+1 seating concept, generous head- and legroom, and substantial load capacity.Book Your Test Drive
Possible in one direction only: the future.
The 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine with variable turbine geometry (VTG) combines economy and power in customary Porsche dynamic style: 310 kW (422 hp) and a maximum torque of 850 Nm at 1,000–3,250 rpm accelerate the Panamera 4S Diesel Sport Turismo from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds. Top speed is 282 km/h.
Night Vision Assist provides the driver with information even beyond the range of the headlights. An infrared camera detects pedestrians, deer and other large wildlife before they are illuminated by the headlights. A thermal image in the instrument cluster warns the driver: the detected person or animal is highlighted in yellow – or in red and accompanied by an audible signal if within the critical range in front of the vehicle. In combination with PDLS Plus, the marker light function briefly flashes the headlight at the pedestrian on the kerbside or in the carriageway three times to alert the driver's attention.
During low-speed manoeuvres, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to that of the front wheels. This has the virtual effect of shortening the wheelbase. The turning circle is reduced, agility is increased and parking becomes noticeably easier to manage.
During high-speed manoeuvres, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels. This virtual extension of the wheelbase increases driving stability.
Rear-axle steering is available for all Panamera Sport Turismo models on request
Let's start with the aspect of a Porsche that always attracts the most attention: the back. The rear end displays a wide physique and is clearly contoured, with all lines emphasising the horizontal orientation of the vehicle concept. The newly refined, higher roof line falls away to the rear, the large-size rear side windows narrow to a point. Nevertheless, passengers in the second row still have plenty of room to get in. A sports car: sharp, agile, contemporary.
ParkAssist including Surround View is fitted in all Panamera Sport Turismo models and audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles detected to the front and rear of the vehicle. The audible alert is supplemented by a visual warning on the central display screen.
