Despite being built as a rear-wheel-drive only, the Panamera GTS Sport Tourismo was closer to the Turbo version rather than the S-version.
Its look was sportier and it the performances were no joke.
The Porsche Panamera Sport Tourismo was a good example of how a station-wagon can get better. For some, it looked even better than the regular Panamera. In terms of practicality, it featured a bigger trunk and more headroom for the rear passengers. For the 2020 model year, the facelifted version received few updates.
The 2020 model Panamera Sport Tourismo GTS featured a different front fascia than the rest of the range, with new grilles in the GTS specific darkened apron. It was fitted with standard LED headlights. On the sides, the 20” light-alloy wheels featured a specific design. In the back, the rectangular exhausts under the apron improved the car’s look. The roof-spoiler installed on top of the tailgate featured the third brake light.
Inside, there was not uncommon to see sport-bucket seats in a Porsche. What was unusual was that the Sport Tourismo had that option for the rear seats as well, or it could have been fitted with a bench for three adults. On the dashboard, it featured the already known Porsche Communication Management infotainment system with a 12.3” touch-screen display mounted at the same level as the steering wheel, on top of the center stack.
The 2020 Panamera GTS engine was upgraded and gained 20 hp over its predecessor. The rear-wheel-drive shooting-brake offered 480 hp from its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.
