The new wagon gives Panamera buyers of having more carrying capacity and a wide selection of engine options.

The production version of the Porsche Panamera wagon has seemed like an absolutely phenomenal idea since the first spy photos revealed its fashionable look a little over a year ago. With the official debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, we know that the Panamera Sport Turismo looks every bit as good as in our dreams.

The Sport Turismo is on display in Switzerland as the 4S trim in cerulean blue, which really makes the contours pop, and the Turbo in a light shade of grey, which appears a little more mature.

Regardless of colour or trim, customers get a vehicle with all the style of the Panamera and the added ability to load about 521 litres of cargo in the back, which expands to around 1,390 litres with the seats down. In comparison, the regular model has 493 litres of storage space in the boot or 1,303 litres with the seats folded.

Porsche’s designers have retained the existing Panamera look but extended the roof rearward. A steeply raked rear window keeps the model from looking too boxy. As a sporty touch a power-extending spoiler deploys from the back at speeds above 56mph.

The Sport Turismo offers 4+1 seating, says Porsche. The back features a pair of buckets, and a person can sit between them at a pinch. Photos suggest it wouldn’t be a very comfortable ride because that person would need to straddle the centre console.

Sport Turismo buyers have a plethora of engine options to pick from. The base Panamera 4 has 326hp; the 4S Diesel boasts 416hp; the 4S Sport offers 435hp; the E-Hybrid Sport has a total output of 456hp; and the Turbo tops the range with 542hp.

The Panamera Sport Turismo goes on sale in Europe on October 7, 2017.
