Good-looking estate cars are becoming harder to find nowadays. In recent years, several attempts have been made by car manufacturers to spruce up their dossiers of estate cars. The more muscular Audi RS 6 or the bespoke novelty builds, like the stunning Ferrari 365 GTB 4, have spiced up the outlook of such cars a great deal. Now, adding a flair to the category of shooting brake cars, the new Porsche Panamera comes with more space and elegance.
The Shooting Brake Cars
The type of car called the shooting brake originated for big shooting parties. These estate cars used to come with two side doors just like a coupe, but featured a rear estate boot that can provide adequate room for hunting dogs, ammunition, and tartan rugs. These cars have been eliminating the common idea that estate cars are borderline boring. Instead, in the current scenario, the term shooting brake has been used to represent almost any design of a curvy, sporty, and handsome estate car. The new Porsche Panamera is a roomier addition to the category with more panache.
The Porsche Estate Car
The 2022 Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo features a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine, delivering 542 bhp of power and an astonishing acceleration of 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds. Raising the stakes in the category, this model is the first-ever estate car offering from Porsche. In comparison to the conventional Panamera, the interior of the new car includes a higher roofline, an additional seat, and an improved luggage space. The profile of the car definitely leans towards the long and lean retro style of the Reliant Scimitar estate dated back from the 1970s. Providing a serene experience to its riders, the latest Porsche is undoubtedly the range-topper in the market.
The Porsche Panamera saloon version was originally criticized for its somewhat odd backside. Now, coming in the guise of this style, it has never looked better! The outlook of the car gives the impression that it was born to be crafted this way, rather than looking like a reluctant conversion of a saloon car. The interior is spruced up with the best range of cabins, and there’s no compromise in driving performance. The full line-up of Porsche Panamera includes the Panamera 4S, Panamera 4S Diesel, 330 bhp Panamera 4 Sport Turismo, and Panamera 4 Turbo S E-Hybrid and the 542 bhp Turbo Sport version.
