Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is discontinued by the brand

Recently, the Porsche revealed the 2024 Panamera, a long-awaited update to its sedan line. However, another piece of news was hot for those who follow the brand’s launches: the discontinuation of the station wagon version, known as Sport Turismo.

Porsche justified the decision to stop production of this version. The main reason given was its secondary role in the main markets of the brand, especially in China and the USA. Thus, these poor sales ended up not justifying its renewal.

The information was given by a brand spokesperson in an interview with Automotive News Europe.

What led to the Panamera Sport Turismo being discontinued?

  • Even though we do not have a detailed account of what led to this discontinuation, a supposed acceptance rate less than 10% may have been his motivator.

  • This corroborates the Porsche representative’s statement. After all, no product survives without the public showing minimal interest.

  • The manufacturer made it clear that there are no plans for a new generation of the station wagon, even in the future. Thus, the Panamera will now only be available as a sedanwith the Executive version.

  • This will feature an elongated wheelbase, ensuring a more luxurious and spacious second row of seats. This design decision aims to serve the key markets mentioned above.

  • In other words, even with the station wagon model discontinued, it is still possible to see its influence on what will continue in terms of internal space.
