The new Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo extends the range with new power and design that set it apart from the rest. By far, the most noticeable change made to the Sport Turismo model is the redesigned rear. Starting at the B-pillars, the Porsche has changed the shape of the car’s rear with a more pronounced shoulder, elongated window line, and an adaptive spoiler. This spoiler adjusts itself according to the car’s speed. When traveling under 105 mph, the spoiler retracts to an angle of minus seven degrees. This reduces drag and optimizes fuel consumption. If the car is going over 105 mph, the spoiler moves to an angle of plus one degree, which helps with driving stability and lateral dynamics.
However, if the driver selects the Sport or Sport Plus driving modes, the spoiler will change to this degree when going over 56 mph. Inside, the Panamera Sport Turismo is the first in the lineup to feature three rear seats. Customers can still order a 2+2 setup with electronically adjustable individual seats in the rear. Also, Porsche raised the roof line of the car, making it easier for the passengers and driver to enter or exit the car.
