The Panamera, Porsche’s first go at a four-seater sedan, received criticism when it first arrived on the scene. None of the negative remarks were aimed at the car’s performance, but rather its styling. Some felt it just didn’t seem to have the right proportions for a sedan. The front was okay to a certain degree, but the rear was too large, with weird overhangs and awkward taillights. Luckily, Porsche realized their mistake and addressed the issue with a Panamera facelift.
Making the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo a Wagon Makes it Instantly Better
If there’s one way to improve the look of a sedan, it’s to turn it into a wagon. They’re just cool. You might not call it stylish, but its purpose and performance easily surpasses the visual aesthetics. The Panamera Sport Turismo Wagon packs a noticeable punch under the hood, delivering the expected Porsche power.
The new Wagon Panamera features a shooting-brake style body and will likely share powertrain options and underpinnings with the sedan. In addition to the standard trims, this means hybrid and/or electric variants in the future as well. There are even rumors circulating the internet that a two-door version paying homage to the legendary Porsche might make an appearance, but Porsche has not confirmed this information.
Sedan or Wagon?
Given the fact that both the sedan and upcoming wagon Panamera share the same underpinnings, which would you rather have? The answer, in our heads at least, is obvious. The wagon looks that much cooler and because the majority of people will go for a sedan, the Panamera Sport Turismo Wagon will be rarer. Win-win.
