Porsche releases video showing construction of Panamera Sport Turismo

Article by Anita Panait, on December 29, 2012

Porsche has unveiled a new promotional video that underscores the construction of the Panamera Sport Turismo concept. Porsche developed the Panamera Sport Turismo over several months and unveiled it at the Paris Motor Show.

During the construction of the Panamera Sport Turismo, its designers carefully considered various details like making it sporty, practical and Porsche-like.

According to Mitja Borkert, General Manager of Porsche Advanced Design, the Panamera currently has one body style – that of a four-door coupe. Borkert remarked that they were intrigued by the idea of developing another version for Porsche, leading them to design a version of a sporty Panamera, a sports station wagon.

The Panamera Sport Turismo concept features a plug-in hybrid powertrain that blends a 333 HP (245 kW) supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, a 95 HP (70 kW) electric motor and a 9.4 kWh lithium-ion battery.

This powertrain allows the concept to return a combined maximum output of 416 HP (306 kW), enabling it to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in less than six seconds. This also allows the concept to return an average 3.5 L/100km (67.2 mpg US / 80.7 mpg UK) and emit less than 82 g/km of carbon dioxide.
