Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo makes driving debut [video]

Previews future design approach

Porsche has released a video showing the Panamera Sport Turismo concept in action.

The interesting concept previews Porsche's future design language that hopefully will heavily influence the second generation of the Panamera. The video offers a quick look of the concept that has a clean and elegant design, with an attractive Liquid Metal Blue paint, ventilated front fenders, LED headlights and a carbon fiber rear spoiler.

In the clip we also get to see the digital instrument cluster which is being flanked by displays for the exterior cameras which serve as rearview mirrors. In addition, there's also a huge infotainment display on the center console for accessing the most common functions.

The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo concept has a hybrid powertrain consisting of a V6 3.0-liter supercharged engine, an electric motor and a 9.4 kWh lithium-ion battery. The conventional power unit generates 333 HP (245 kW) while the electric motor provides 95 HP (70 kW), enough for a combined maximum output of 416 HP (306 kW).

0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) is done in less than six seconds, while fuel consumption stands at only 3.5 liters / 100 km (67.2 mpg US or 80.7 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of less than 82 g/km. In electric mode, the concept is able to run for more than 18.6 miles (30 km) at speeds of up to 81 mph (130 km/h).

Looks too old fashioned. Make it more modern and fresh.

A beautiful concept and finally something good looking from Porsche. It's missing side mirrors, whatever the benefit of those cameras my be. This way looks like a dressed man without a watch or belt, something is just missing. Call it traditionalism or whatever, but car look naked without them..
