While the Porsche Panamera's more popular sedan body style is entering its third generation, the Sport Turismo wagon isn't coming along with it. Though it may have offered more practicality––and arguably more attractive looks––than the regular Panamera, Porsche decided that sales charts were just too low to justify renewing it.


Slow sales are to blame, which isn't exactly surprising given the low popularity of wagons in North America. The news was first broken by Porsche in a statement to Automotive News Europe, which read, "In China and the U.S. — our main markets in the D segment—the Sport Turismo plays only a minor role. For this reason, we have decided to discontinue this model variant with the launch of the new generation."


The Sport Turismo first entered the scene for the 2017 model year, debuting alongside the second-generation Panamera sedan. During its six-year lifespan, the wagon underwent very few changes, with the exception of a mid-cycle refresh back in 2021.




While the Sport Turismo is quite a loss, Porsche still offers a number of alternatives. The first is––surprise––the new third-generation Panamera sedan, which rolls into 2024 with enhanced looks, extra tech in its revised cabin, and an emphasis on hybrid powertrains. If you do insist on getting a wagon, Stuttgart still offers one in the form of the battery-powered Taycan Sport Turismo and its more SUV-like Cross Turismo counterpart. It's also worth noting that Mercedes and Audi still offer their own similarly-sized AMG E63 and RS6 Avant wagons in the U.S.


While the Sport Turismo won't be joining it this time around, the 2024 Panamera sedan will launch this spring with a starting price of $101,550. For those who can swallow that hefty price, order books are open as we speak.
