Yes, it's a wagon, and yes, it will blow the doors off of many more exotic machines. The 2023 Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo's performance is absolutely electric, and those not used to such levels of acceleration can be caught off guard. The turbocharged V8 engine produces over 600 hp and will launch the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo to 60 mph in a staggering 2.9 seconds before reaching a top speed of 196 mph. AWD traction and clever launch control systems do most of the magic, so all the driver has to do is sit back, stomp on the go-faster pedal, and hold on for dear life.
Under the hood of the 2023, Porsche Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo sits a beast of an engine. This twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter gas V8 rumbles to life with a snarl and sounds magnificent at full tap. Its outputs of 620 hp and 604 lb-ft of torque are directed to all four wheels via an advanced AWD system and an eight-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission with manual control via gearshift paddles. Paired with Launch Control from the Sport Chrono Package, it dispatches the 0-60 mph spring in 2.9 seconds before tapping out at a top speed of 196 mph.
In everyday situations, the Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo feels civilized and is happy to roll along suburban roads, but dip deeper into the go-fast pedal, and all hell breaks loose. This car will push you back in your seat and leave you wanting more. As far as wagons go, this one is one of the most brutal and is only outdone by its hybrid sibling, the Turbo S E-Hybrid, which adds electricity to up outputs to 690 hp and 641 lb-ft but makes do with a three-second 60-mph dash thanks to its heftier curb weight.
