Surfing is part of life here in Florida. But when the thermometer goes negative we find other ways to stay active. Mark Boyd is a professional surfer who doesn’t let the weather bother him. He chooses to surf in on the most unforgiving waters of the North Sea. Being a Scotsman, he knows a thing or two about harsh weather so Porsche decided to let him test the abilities of the new Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo.
In a press release this morning, Porsche tells a story of surfing and of perseverance. The Turbo Sport Turismo is lighter than the Turbo S E-Hybrid, which allows it to reach 60 mph in only 3.6 seconds. The hatchback design is perfect for hauling your surfboard along with everything you need for a perfect beach day. The twin turbo 4.0 liter V8 sends 550 horsepower and 567 lb-ft of torque to all wheels through a dual-clutch transmission.
Even with massive 315/35 rear tires, it is able to offer 25 mpg. With the second row folded you will have 49 cubic feet of cargo space, which more than many crossovers have to offer. As far as the gorgeous styling, it looks eerily similar to the Audi RS7, but that’s probably just a coincidence…We can’t wait to get our hands on the Turbo S E-Hybrid wagon, so stay with us for all your Porsche news & reviews.
