Porsche has released a new video detailing the development of the Panamera Sport Turismo concept. Porsche took the wraps off the shooting break concept earlier this year at the Paris Motor Show.
The video features Porsche design boss Michael Mauer and designer Mitja Borkert detailing the development of the Panamera Sport Turismo from early drawings all the way up to the car's Paris debut. Most of the video takes place behind the scenes at the automaker's research and design facility in Weissach, Germany.

The video reveals several key changes needed to transform the standard Panamera into a shooting brake, including added aerodynamics that help keep the car glued to the road. Of course the exterior design of the Sport Turismo is also featured in the video, such as the incorporation of some 918 Spyder design cues into the concept's front fascia design.

Porsche has yet to confirm if the Panamera Sport Turismo will ultimately make the transition to production, but if the reaction from the Paris crowd is anything to go by, the more shapely version of the Panamera should eventually get the green light. On thing is for sure - the Panamera Sport Turismo's plug-in hybrid system will make its way into a production Porsche vehicle.
