We first set eyes on the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Concept back in late September at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, and we were instant fans. The Panamera Sport Turismo embodies the Panamera’s beautiful wagon-styling, while pushing the aesthetic to a more modern, sleeker place. It’s fitting, as the Panamera Sport Turismo is a hybrid, powered by both its 335-hp V-6, and its 95 hp electric motor. Porsche says you can go a little over 18 miles on electric power alone, which is about half of what a Chevy Volt can do. Then again, there’s a whole lot more car and performance here. The Volt also doesn’t have “Turismo” in its name, which has got to be worth something.
And while static pictures can give you a sense of the Porsche concept’s beautiful styling, watching it roll through Beverly Hills on high definition video certainly tops that. You can see the team behind the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo wax poetic about the concept, and frankly, we can’t fault them.
