Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Concept was presented in a photo gallery on the Internet before the official presentation, but a few minutes ago the German car manufacturer released the official information at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo was the star of the Porsche’s stand here at 2012 Paris Motor Show. The new German hybrid concept came with an aggressive design combined with a powerful propulsion system.

Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Concept – Design, Interior, Engine
This concept has a hybrid drivetrain that can be charged from an ordinary outlet. The electric motor of this drive system develops 95 hp (71 kW/96 PS), while the supercharged V6 unit develops 333 hp (248 kW/338 PS). In full electric mode, Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Concept can reach speeds up to 135 km/h (83 mph).
From what we can see, Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Concept represents a Shooting Brake version of the four-door coupe. This model would rival the new Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake, another premiere in Paris.
Unlike the Mercedes-Benz, the Porsche version is still a concept and the production model was not officially announced. It is possible that the Panamera Sport Turismo Concept will foresee the future generation of the Panamera and any of its versions, but there is no statement to clarify the status of this rumour.
Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Concept has a kinetic energy recovery system that saves all the energy lost during braking and a new internal combustion engine located in the front. On the interior, the model has a design that comes as a futuristic evolution to what we see today on the Panamera. In addition, we have a dramatically changed center console while the gear selector disappears in favor of a set of buttons. Nearly all of the center console controls are tactile, removing all the numerous physical buttons.
