Unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo was offered in five different versions, depending on the engine. The 4S was considered a well-balanced version in terms of price per value.
The 2017 Panamera Sport Tourismo was more like a shooting-brake than a station-wagon. More like a lowered Macan than a station-wagon Panamera. Its raked rear looked like it was there to enhance the aerodynamic rather than increase the cargo area. Yet, that tailgate was designed for both. And since it didn't want to mimic the rear-end of a 911, it might be just the better solution.
Inside, the Turbo Sport Tourismo looked just like the regular Panamera. It lost the multi-button center console arranged like on a Vertu mobile phone. It had the same haptic buttons on a display. Also, the infotainment unit was large and had a fast-responsive touch-screen. It supported only Apple CarPlay. The longer roof-line allowed a higher rear door and easier access to the three seats in the back. The trunk was larger by 25 liters (0.9 cu-ft) than the one on the regular Panamera. It was the first Porsche Panamera available with up to five seats.
For the powertrain, the 4s Sport Tourismo featured a twin-turbo V6 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system. To keep the car planted on the road, a set of adaptive suspension was added to the cocktail.
