Porsche has taken the wraps off the Panamera Sport Turismo concept.

Designed to preview the company's future styling language, the model has a clean and elegant design which is both practical and attractive. It is dressed in Liquid Metal Blue paint and features LED headlights, ventilated front fenders and a carbon rear spoiler. Overall, it measures 4,950mm long, 1,990mm wide and 1,401mm tall.

The minimalistic cabin has a pleasing design which incorporates leather upholstery, Alcantara trim and metallic accents. There's also a digital instrument cluster which is flanked by displays for the exterior ‘mirror' cameras. Last but not least, there's a large infotainment display on the center console which has quick access buttons for commonly used functions.

Motivation is provided by a plug-in hybrid powertrian that combines a 333 HP (245 kW) supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, a 95 HP (70 kW) electric motor and a 9.4 kWh lithium-ion battery. This enables the concept to have a combined maximum output of 416 HP (306 kW) which enables it to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than six seconds. In terms of efficiency, the model consumes less than 3.5 L/100km (67.2 mpg US / 80.7 mpg UK) and has CO2 emissions under 82 g/km. The concept can also travel on electricity alone for over 30 km (18.6 miles) at speeds up to 130 km/h (81 mph).
