Porsche. Station wagon.

It's like an auto writer's (or a Porschephile's) dream come true.

Instead of a hatchback like the regular Panamera, this one grows to become a proper wagon.

However, aside from the rear liftgate and the active spoiler atop it, not much is different from the regular Panamera.

The base engine is a 330-horsepower V6, and it can be had for less than $100,000, which is cheap by Porsche standards.

The next step up is the Panamera e-Hybrid Sport Turismo, which mates the V6 with a hybrid-electric drivetrain.

There's also a 440-horsepower V6 on tap, in case that's more up your alley.

If you want all the power, though, opt for the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo, which has a 550-horsepower V8.

Yeah, I'll take the V8.
