Porsche has taken the wraps off its Panamera Sport Turismo before debuting it at the Geneva Motor Show - around five years after it revealed a concept car of the same name.

The shooting-brake-style four-door estate not only shares its name with the 2012 vehicle, but it's almost identical in design, too, incorporating the tail light cluster and quad-exhaust layout, as well as its headlight and front-bumper design. Only the production model's taller roofline and more angular body panelling separate it from the concept.

Porsche says it's the first estate car to feature an extendable spoiler to generate an additional 110lbs of downforce. The small rear wing can also be raised in three stages for either better grip or improved fuel economy.

Additionally, the shooting-brake body allows owners to utilise an extra 20 litres of boot space, says Evo, bringing the total storage room up to 520l litres. Dropping the seats will open up 1,390 litres of space, while a "luggage compartment management system" and "floor rails" add to the "versatility factor".

Buyers will be able to choose from five engines, including an all-wheel drive E-Hybrid model that boasts a claimed emission output of 56g/km of CO2.

Orders are now open for the Panamera Sport Turismo, with prices starting from £73,017, AutoExpress reports, adding that the more powerful 4S model enters at £93,979, while the E-Hybrid comes in at a slightly cheaper £83,288.
