Porsche has offered a hint of what is to come for its Panamera range, revealing a new Sport Turismo plug-in hybrid wagon concept in Paris this week.

While the new concept's unveiling follows rumours of a special shooting-brake version, Porsche has instead focused on mixing a sportback look with a strong dose of style.

The concept also previews what could be the general look of the next Panamera, with large new Cayenne-inspired headlights and a new tail-light design that borrows more than a little from the new 911 Carrera 4.

Inside those big headlights is a full LED arrangement, while the indicators have been integrated into the gills embedded in the front quarter panel. Expect the production model to gain side mirrors, of course.

The cabin is gifted with a relatively spartan layout, ditching the usual switches and dials for a large LCD touchscreen display. This, too, will likely make way for a more conventional unit in production form.

Power in the Panamera Sport Turismo concept is provided by a plug-in hybrid arrangement, matching a supercharged 3.0 litre V6 with an electric motor.

The system is an evolution of the package already offered in the current Panamera S Hybrid and Cayenne S Hybrid models.

Here, the electric motor produces 70kW - around twice the powered offered in the current system - supplementing the 250kW generated by the big super-six.

Porsche says the combined powerplant will grant a 0-100km/h time below six seconds, and an all-electric driving mode will deliver a range of around 30 kilometres.

Best of all, fuel consumption is claimed to be as low as 3.5 l/100km, bettering most small four-cylinder models currently on the market, and more than a few hybrids.

Watch for more details on the new Panamera line-up in the coming year.
