The Porsche Company is certainly among top five companies in the world, and they have so many remarkable vehicles in almost every segment. Now, we have one excellent news for all the customers. The Porsche will expand the Panamera lineup, and now we can expect the addition of the new body version. The newest Germans addition will celebrate its world debut at this year GenevaCar Show, and we can expect to see five different variants as well including Panamera 4, 4S, Turbo, 4 E-Hybrid and 4S Diesel. Today we will talk just about the recently developed 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo. The company says that the coming model will be more versatile than probably any other model in this class. Director of Style Porsche, Michael Mauer says that this will be a step forward into a new segment for the Porsche Company. Because of all of the above, our recommendation is to start on this page and to enjoy in the following review.
2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Exterior design
The exterior design of this model is definitely on the other level. First of all, let’s start with the dimensions of this vehicle. The new model will have a length of 5,049 millimeters, a height of 1,428 millimeters, a width of 1,937 millimeters and a wheelbase of 2,950 millimeters. Furthermore, the silhouette will be characterized by large wheels and short body overhangs. More precisely, the wheels of this model will be made from an aluminum, and its size will be 21-inch. There is no official information about the wheels design, but we expect 10-spoke design, maybe even with a black finish.
This model will begin with the B-pillars feature completely new and unique rear design. It will also provide quite striking appearance thanks to the pronounced shoulder, equally long roof contour and elongated window line. At the back side, the roof will drop much less dramatic compared to the window line and thanks to that fact we can expect distinctive and prominent D-pillar. At the top of this model, we can see that the roof extends into an adaptive spoiler. The angle of the roof spoiler will depend on selected vehicle settings. Up to a speed of 170 km/h, we can expect a system that reduces drag and optimizes fuel consumption. Above 170 km/h, the roof spoiler will automatically move to the performance position.
Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo 2018 Interior design
The interior design of the upcoming model will be luxurious, elegant and above all very comfortable. This will be the first Panamera model that has three seats on the rear side. We can expect two outside seats in the form of individual seats. Optionally, this model will be available in a four-seat configuration with electrically adjustable individual seats at the back side. Thanks to the raised roofline, we can expect easier entry and exit.
At this moment, we don’t have so many pieces of information about the systems inside the cabin, but it is quite sure that we can expect a lot of high tech features. However, there are some reliable rumors, and they say that we can anticipate digital Porsche Advanced Cockpit and systems like Porsche InnoDrive, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, adaptive cruise control, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery for all the seats, steering wheel, dashboard, door trims, excellent audio system and many others as well.
Engine and Performance
Beneath the bonnet, the recent model will be powered by a few engine options. The first engine will be a 3.0-liter V-6 that will be capable of delivering up to 330 horses. With this engine, this model will accelerate from 0-60 mph in a 5.0-seconds flat. The next engine will be 2.9-liter with the max power output of 440 horsepower and 405 pound-feet. Next in the line will be an engine for the 4 E-Hybrid and that will be the same 2.9-liter with an extra 136 horses from its electric motor.
The acceleration from 0-60 mph with this engine will be 4.4 seconds. One more engine that we can expect will be 4.0-liter V-8 that will be capable of delivering up to 550 horsepower and 567 pound-feet of torque. This model will accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. When it comes to a transmission system, we can expect the newly developed Company’s new eight-speed PDK automatic gearbox for all the engines.
