At the 2012 Paris Motor Show Porsche has revealed the Panamera Sport Turismo, a concept that previews a five-door version of the four-door coupé model. Among the highlights are the hybrid powertrain and a brand new, essential interior.


Exterior Design

The exterior of the Panamera Sport Turismo is defined by Porsche as “an outlook on a possible Porsche sports car of tomorrow”.

The Sport Turismo is 1,990 mm wide, a low 1,401 mm in height and 4,950 mm long – compared to the production Panamera it is 20mm shorter, 60mm wider and sits 13mm lower. The overhangs are short, and the trunk lid is large.

Together with four-point LED headlights in an innovative design, they define the front end appearance of the concept car.

The conventional side mirrors. are replaced by two cameras mounted in the side air outlets and connected to displays in the cockpit.

The rear section has been completely reshaped: the LED tail lights are narrow and integrated in a horizontal fascia which enhances the sporty look, hinting strongly at the 911.

Forming the roof termination is an adaptive carbon rear spoiler that produces improved downforce.

The new Liquid Metal Blue color gives the concept car a surface that resembles liquid metal and highlights its contours and design lines.

The wheels in dual-spoke design have a bi-color look, and the brake calipers are painted Acid Green.

Additional highlights include the motorsport-inspired hub locks of the wheels and the “hybrid” badges on the sides, framed in the same Acid Green color, as is the “Sport Turismo” name at the rear.

The milled aluminum battery housing is mounted under the trunk floor, which is made of electrochromatic glass and reveals a view of the energy source illuminated in Acid Green at the press of a button.

Interior Design

The horizontal dashboard gives a new sense of lightness and hi-tech and is divided into three layers: the upper surface in brown leather, the lower one upholstered in a contrasting light grey leather, and a middle T-shaped element in aluminum that extends towards the center of the cabin giving form to the center tunnel.

The instrumentation is essential and makes use of LCD displays, including a large touchscreen on the center console. All the functions can be controlled with a smartphone.

Powertrain

The plug-in hybrid powertrain is an evolution on the system used on the Panamera S Hybrid and Cayenne S Hybrid. It features a 3-liter V6 engine delivering 245 kW (333 hp), a 70 kW (95 hp) electric motor and a Lithium-ion battery with 9.4 kWh capacity and plug-in charging system compatible with electrical power grid.

The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h takes less than 6 seconds, and the combine consumption (NEDC) is less than 3.5 l/100 km. The range in pure electric mode is greater than 30 km, and the battery charging time is 2.5 h.
