Rumor: Porsche Panamera Shooting Brake coming to the 2012 Paris Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 16, 2012

The U.S. market won’t be getting the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake but fans of the wagon may still be excited for the possibility that Porsche and McLaren may offer their own variants. At this September’s Paris Motor Show, the German automaker will introduce a concept shooting brake model based on the Panamera.

Porsche wants to play it safe and wait if the CLS Shooting Brake is successful before it decides if it will present a Panamera Shooting Brake to its lineup.

Once it is approved for production, it’s likely to arrive in the market in 2015 for Porsche’s next generation models.

With regards to a McLaren Shooting Brake, it was initially believed that a Ferrari FF rival would by the British automaker last April.

According to German magazine Autobild, the MP4-12C Shooting Brake may make its debut before the end of 2013. It will be powered by the same 3.8-liter twin turbo engine that is used on the current model.
