The Porsche Panamera lineup is growing as spy photographers have snapped the first pictures of the new Panamera Shooting Brake.

Caught testing alongside the standard model, the Panamera Shooting Brake draws inspiration from the Panamera Sport Turismo concept and features a unique rear end with a more practical hatchback.  The model also has a longer and flatter roof as well as a more pronounced C-pillar.

The interior will carryover from the standard Panamera so buyers can expect to find a high-tech cabin with capacitive-touch controls and an instrument cluster with an analog tachometer that is flanked by two digital displays. Other highlights will include a new steering wheel, a revised center console, and a new shifter.  The biggest change will be a larger rear luggage compartment which will be more cargo friendly than the standard model.

Porsche is keeping details under wraps but the Panamera and Panamera Shooting Brake will ride on the all-new MSB platform which features a mix of materials including aluminum, high-strength steel, and lightweight composites.  The models are also expected to be offered with a new generation of V6 and V8 engines but nothing is official as of yet.
