4. Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo

Rumors that Porsche would reveal a Panamera wagon at the Paris Motor Show proved to be both accurate and misleading.

The Panamera Sport Turismo is more of a wagon than the current car, though it’s actually slightly shorter in length and less of a utility machine.

What makes this Porsche so original is that it is a plug-in hybrid and uses a 333-hp V6 engine and 95-hp electric motor for a combined 416-hp. As a result, it can hit 60 mph in less than 6.0 seconds while achieving 67 MPG.

A look at Porsche’s future technology and styling, expect some of the car’s design cues to make it into the next-generation Panamera.
