Car and Driver: Porsche Panamera Shooting Brake Is a Go for Production (and We’ll Get It!)

The second-generation Porsche Panamera will come with a shooting brake body variant—and it will come to the U.S.

According to Porsche Cars North America CEO Klaus Zellmer, speaking to Automotive News, a long-roof Panamera like the 2012 Sport Turismo Wagon Concept is headed for production, and even though Americans hate station wagons that aren’t lifted or body-cladded, we’ll be getting one.

“We have to have some patience for [the wagon] to arrive in the U.S.,” Zellmer told AN. “But we are confident that this car will be well received here, despite the fact that this country doesn’t really like hatchbacks or wagons.”

While we haven’t seen spy shots of the new sedan, a wagon version (as we previewed before the 2012 concept debuted in Paris) would stretch the current Panamera’s ungraceful rear haunches like they should have been from the start, had then-Porsche CEO Wendelin Wiedeking not complained about the backseat being cramped.

Right now, the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake is the only wagon derived from a four-door “coupe” (and is not for sale here). But not for too long. The 2017 Panamera launches at the Paris auto show in September, while the wagon version, says AN, would arrive stateside in 2018. A Panamera coupe in the vein of the 928 is also being considered, but that model has yet to be officially confirmed.
