Watch our video of the Panamera Sport Turismo which made its debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show

Alongside the new 911 Carrera 4 and Cayenne V8 diesel, Porsche surprised us at the Paris Motor Show with the Panamera Sport Turismo concept.

The Panamera Sport Turismo is essentially an estate version of the standard Panamera, and it has been built to gauge public reaction.

In addition to the new design, Porsche used the concept as an opportunity to debut new technology. The plug-in e-hybrid system in the Sport Turismo will make its way into Porsche’s road cars as early as next year, and will allow up to 80mpg and 20 miles of range on battery-power alone.

Although technically a concept, this model gives us an idea of how the facelifted Panamera could look when it hits showrooms in 2013.
