Techart Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo boosts power and style with GrandGT Supreme kit

The Panamera Sport Turismo is already an impressive car but German Tuner Techart and the Porsche specialists within the company plan to debut a special GrandGT kit for the upcoming 2018 Geneva Motor Show that is bound to enhance its appeal. After the upgrade called the GrandGT Supreme, the wagon now features an aggressive body and an opulent cabin.

Like the standard GrandGT kit, the version has a front bumper design similar to it but it comes with a hood that has a huge power bulge. The wagon now has a wider stance, thanks to the wider fenders and lower side sills. There are larger diffusers in the back that gain even larger strakes than the existing body kit. This wagon sits on new Techart Formula IV wheels, with five sets of double spokes, measuring at 22 inches.

To match the meaner look of this Sport Turismo, Techart can offer you a powertrain upgrade as well. The company’s engine upgrade can push the Panamera Turbo to have an output of 630 horsepower (470 kilowatts) and 664 pound feet (900 Newton metres) of torque. That is a lot more compared to the stock output of 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts) and 567 pound feet (769 Newton metres) of torque.

Porsche confirms Panamera sedan would soon feature rear bench seat for fifth passenger

The Porsche Panamera sporty sedan offers a dynamic drive and comfortable ride, with the capability to accommodate up to four occupants. While the Porsche Panamera is a healthy proposition for North American drivers who wanted a performance-laden sedan, it does discourage potential customers looking for a sedan that could to ferry up to five occupants at a time.

Now Porsche is looking forward to win back those customers in the United States. Klaus Zellmer, chief executive of Porsche Cars North America, told Automotive News at the Frankfurt Motor Show that the German sports car maker is making available an optional rear bench. With this option, the Porsche Panamera sedan could accommodate five occupants, instead of the usual four. However, the bench option would be made available next year, so for now, Panamera sedan customers would have to settle for the four-seater.

As designed, the Porsche Panamera sedan carries two occupants on the front (driver and front passenger) and another two on the rear cabin (individually seated rear passengers). The individual seats on the front are separated by a center console, and so are the individual seats on the rear. This basically rules out the existence of a fifth passenger in the Panamera sedan.

2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo offers top performance for $223,530

Everybody’s favourite long roof from Porsche has now been given the hybrid treatment and is now dubbed the 2018 Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo. It had recently been given an additional 136-horsepower electric motor like that of the standard Panamera E-Hybrid Turbo. It’s combined to an already powerful 4.0 liter biturbo V8 with as much as 550 horsepower. Overall, it now produces a combined output of 680 horsepower, making it the most powerful long roof out there. Let us not refer to it as a wagon or an estate since Porsche refuses to call it that. Rather, it’s referred to as the Sport Turismo.

With regards to the efficiency of the 918 hypercar’s hybrid powertrain that has been used here, it is apparently on par with the 3.0 liter version of the Panamera even if it has way more power. What makes it even more impressive is the fact that you can drive this model for as far as 31 miles on a rate of 87 miles per hour without having to use a drop of gasoline. But depending on the type of connection being used, the charging time may vary from 2.4 to 6 hours.

According to the automaker, the hybrid Sport Turismo will be able to hit 60 miles per hour in only 3.4 seconds. To be honest, it doesn’t take as fast for many people to say the full name of the car. What may be a little confusing is the fact that the automaker lists the same acceleration figure for the regular Turbo S Sport Turismo. That’s because a downside of the hybrid powertrain is that it adds considerable weight to the unit.

Production begins for the 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo

The first time Porsche revealed the Panamera Sport Turismo to the public was during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. And now it has already entered production, and is on its way to its first customers all over the globe. The Leipzig facility was produced especially for the second-generation Panamera family, and Porsche had to invest a total of €500 million ($582 million), a part of which was used to build a new quality center.

The new 400-hectare facility is also in charge of the production of the Macan and Cayenne SUVs, apart from the Panameras. There are 4,055 people who are working in the facility and in the last year alone, they produced a total of 158,432 cars. The Leipzig facility opened in August 2002 and already €1.3 billion ($1.5M) have been invested.

Within the facility, 345,345 square meters cover the production area. To date, the Leipzig factory has 948 robots in the body shop, paint shop, and in the assembly facility, where they build 1.7 million parts each day. There is a wood chip burning system that provides 80% CO2-neutral heat to the paint shop. Outside the production area, there is a 3.7-kilometer race track and a 6-kilometer off-road track. In terms of wildlife, 75 aurochs, 1.5 million bees, and wild horses live in the area. Porsche’s factory is also open to visitors, and 40,000 people come to the customer center annually.

After Porsche launched the Panamera luxurious sporty sedan in 2009, the German sports car maker received numerous requests to follow it up with a wagon version. When 2012 came, many rejoiced when Porsche unveiled the Panamera Sport Turismo Concept at that year’s Paris Auto Show. Until recently, Porsche had not released any official information about the wagon production version of its sporty sedan.

But today, we get an official preview of the wagon version of the Porsche Panamera. The thing is, Porsche doesn’t want to call it a wagon (even if it does fit the description). The global debut of the 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo (not a concept anymore) is scheduled to happen in a few days at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

It will be displayed and subsequently be available in five flavors: Panamera 4 Sport Turismo, Panamera 4S Sport Turismo, Panamera 4S Diesel Sport Turismo, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo and Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo. All of these will be available for the 2018 model year.

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.

Porsche has been giving some clues that it would expand its Panamera lineup to include a sporting wagon. But no hint was more obvious than when the German carmaker unveiled its Panamera Sport Turismo Concept at the current Paris Auto Show. The Panamera Sport Turismo concept features, for the first time, a plug-in version of Porsche's gasoline-electric hybrid system.

The Panamera Sport Turismo concept is one of at least three new Panamera-based models that Porsche is considering since launching the vehicle in 2009. Major visual modifications include an extended roofline, a longer glasshouse and an angled tailgate that opens at bumper height.

Porsche chief executive Mathias Muller is expected to confirm that new style-led wagon will become a part of the second-generation Panamera lineup. His confirmation is expected to coincide with the debut of the rival Mercedes-Benz CLS shooting brake at the Paris auto show.

If yesterday, a shooting brake version of the Porsche Panamera was just a dream and a rumor, today it became official: this is the Panamer Sport Turismo Concept. The concept previews the Porsche sports car of tomorrow and us 1,990 mm wide, a low 1,401 mm in height and 4,950 mm long. Wearing a Liquid Metal Blue colour, the new concept car features a redesigned front end with impressive headlights, a new front bumper with LED daytime running lights, a redesigned front hood, but the most interesting part is the rear end.

This was completely reshaped and features rear lights in LED technology, and a three dimensional tail-light Panel with the Porsche bagde, as well as an adaptive carbon rear spoiler. The design is completed by the dual-spoke wheels with bi-colour look and by the brake calipers painted in Acid Green.

The interior of the concept also previews the upcoming Porsche cars and features a forward-looking interpretation. We find a large central TFT colour display that replaces the classic instruments and two monitors, one on the left and one on the right, that show images from the exterior mirror cameras.
