Porsche Panamera 4 Sport Turismo Review
Fast Back

Step back and somehow, the Sport Turismo still gives a nod in styling to the 911

While we have found in recent years that car styling has gone fluidly hand-in-hand with equally fluid categorisation, the Sport Turismo delivers a drop-dead gorgeous Shooting-Brake styled variation of the beautifully penned Panamera sedan.

Perhaps for those who might want a clearly-defined performance Estate, the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 43 Estate would have taken the cake here, but the Sport Turismo is unique, sitting half-in and half-out of the Estate vehicle box.

But this isn’t just a half-assed addition of space Porsche thought of, but one planned carefully around the fastback-styled sedan version. You will notice the roofline staying relatively horizontal after the “B” pillar, instead of the 911-aping sloping roof of the sedan, and a larger bit of quarter glass at the rear. Step back and somehow, the Sport Turismo still gives a nod in styling to the 911.

At the rear end, the Sport Turismo gets well… more of it, meaning more boot space and very different rear-end styling. This would mean that it really is an Estate Vehicle in every sense in traditional rules. Well the fashionable term to use these days is “Shooting Brake”, which means that you would technically have to lob off the rear doors if you want it to be called that.

Little touches like the automated near-invisible roof-mounted wing for added downforce, hidden in… well a rear wing itself, complements the sculpting of the car; which itself never comes across as vulgar, but rather elegant and pleasing to the eye.
