PORSCHE has confirmed that its stunning Panamera Sport Turismo wagon will be offered in Australia with the most potent V8 turbo powertrain paired with plug-in E-Hybrid performance and efficiency boosting technology for a starting price of $466,400.

Porsche also claims the hybrid wagon can do the 0-100km/h sprint in just 3.4secs, while also being able to drive on electric power alone for 49km.

The auto, which produces its maximum torque from just 1400rpm, can also hit 124mph in 11.9sec, which is just one second slower than the 911 GT3 RS can manage.

A 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery powers the electric motor and takes 12 hours to fully charge using a 120-volt outlet, but less than three hours with a 240-volt charger.

The fitment of the battery into the car's floor has removed 95 litres of storage space from the boot, but the figure still stands at 425 litres. The rear bench holds space for two adults and a child, and can be folded electronically in a 40:20:40 split.

All of this will cost you $188,400 plus $1050 for destination-$4000 more than the sedan version of the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.

Rear steering is optional but other chassis systems including Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control roll stabilisation, torque vectoring, rear differential lock, carbon ceramic brakes, 21-inch wheels, three-chamber air suspension and Active Suspension Management selectable driving modes are all standard fare.
