More pictures of the Panamera like Taycan are coming out of Europe. There is little camouflage on this test mule, so its the best look we've had so far at the 4 door electric shooting brake. From the side profile this car is almost identical to the Panamera Sport Turismo, aside from the charging port on the front left fender. This model alike many of the test mules we've been seeing is still using those faux exhaust tips to throw off onlookers.

After seeing these pictures I think that most people will be relieved to see it resembles the concept quite well.
Does anyone know what Sport Turismo trim this test mule might be?

Sharing a resemblance with the Panamera isn't a bad thing imo and there are probably still some things that will change prior to its production model. Didn't the original concept have increased ground clearance?

I'm not sure if we ever got any official specifications with relation to ride height and clearance, but they did mention it. They have probably also made some changes to the chassis to make it a bit more off pavement friendly.

that has me thinking that once journalists are able to question Porsche executives on the upcoming Cross Turismo that they'll reference the Panamera
but this model comes partially as a response to the e-class all terrain and audi A6 all road.

Buyers like to know that a car has the capabilities to venture off road, even if its something they may never utilize. It inspires confidence knowing that a car has been designed with these purposes in mind. I don't think those all road estate cars have been all that successful in NA, but they continue to do well overseas.

Prior to them coming to market in North America there has been far milder wagons like the Mercedes CLS and Porsche Panamera.
Both of those proved how well the wagon segment can perform which in any segment eventually calls for variations which these off road versions provide.
Even if it people just get it for asthetics, they'll sell just because they are different.
