Porsche gives the Panamera a much needed butt-lift courtesy of the Panamera Sport Turismo

Porsche's Panamera may get a lot of flak for being a bit "troubled" in the styling department (specifically, it's rear-end), but that hasn't stopped the vehicle from becoming German sports/luxury brand's best-selling model.
Since the Panamera is a sales and financial success, Porsche is looking to refine the design a bit more with the Panamera Sport Turismo. The Panamera Sport Turismo fixes the ass-end of the original by turning it into a full "shooting brake" or “wagon” for U.S. folks. The fresh styling makes the Panamera Sport Turismo look like a badass grocery getter that would take on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake.

Naturally, being a concept car, the Panamera Sport Turismo features an advanced powertrain with an eye on fuel efficiency. It uses a more powerful variant of the hybrid system already found in the current Panamera S Hybrid and the Cayenne S Hybrid. It features a supercharged V6 engine that generates 333hp that is paired with a 95hp electric motor -- total system output is listed at 416hp.

Even with 416hp on tap, don't expect the Panamera Sport Turismo to be chasing down 911s any time soon -- Porsche lists the 0-60 time of the vehicle as "sub 6 seconds". The vehicle can travel up to 18 miles on battery power alone and can hit 80 mph in pure electric mode.

Porsche says that the Panamera Sport Turismo is just a concept at this point, but all we can say is: "BUILD IT!"

You're worried about Porsche building a hybrid....when the real crime is that damn thing looks like a 4 door station wagon from 1979!!!

I just threw up in my mouth.

That thing is an abomination in the eyes of all that is good and holy.

Wow, you must be a prophet or something. You should go out and start a religion or something and teach us all the ways life! Thank you so much for your wisdom, and by the way....blow me.
