What to Expect from the 2024 Porsche 911 ST, Panamera and Turbo
2024 Porsche 911 ST
You best believe that Porsche is working on yet another version of the 911. 23 versions is simply not enough, and that doesn’t even include racing and special editions. Despite the multitude of options available, we are far from mad about another!
This new variant of the 911 will be known as the ST. Based on the current 911 GT3 Touring, the ST is expected to be a “heritage-inspired model,” paying tribute to the original 911 from the 1970’s.
From afar, the ST doesn’t seem like anything out of the ordinary for newer Porsche models, but as you take some time to absorb the details, you’ll notice similarities between this car and the upcoming 911 GT3 RS, such as the double bubble roof and front fender vents. The spoiler and engine cover are also new here, as a third brake light and a circular spot for the Porsche emblem have been incorporated.
In an article from CarScoops, a spy photographer was able to capture images of the exterior of this vehicle, but we currently do not have any snapshots of the interior. Based on previously established heritage-inspired versions, we can imagine seeing detailed upholstery, retro style digital gauges, and classic Porsche emblems.
The biggest question mark we share with CarScoops based on their article is what the engine will be. The 911 GT3 Touring features a naturally aspirated 4.0 liter six-cylinder engine with 502HP and 346 lbs of torque. This kind of engine allows the Touring to go from 0-60 mph in approximately 3.2 “when equipped with PDK transmission.” Perhaps we will see something similar in the 911 ST, if not even more powerful.
Do you believe Porsche should stop making entirely new versions of the 911 and focus on improving the current versions?
2024 Porsche Panamera and Turbo
CarScoops was at it again with strategically placing their spy photographer at the Nürburgring in Germany. Captured on camera were two variants of the Panamera and it was easy to tell which of the two was souped-up.
According to the article, the first model features three evenly-spaced intakes along the front bumper, rectangular tailpipes, and a spoiler stemming from the base of the trunk lid. The second model, however, features four individual tailpipe finishers and a special spoiler that rises from the trunk lid and extends outwards. This design suggests that it is a faster car compared to the first one, so we may have been looking at either a Turbo or even a Turbo S.
Another detail to point out is that neither variants showcased the yellow indicator of a hybrid vehicle, so we are to assume that these will be standard gas cars.
How “new” can these new models be, though? Most would expect these to just be updates of the current ones, but the interior design is suggesting a fully digital dashboard like the Taycan.
What do you think will be the biggest improvement in the 2024 Panamera compared to the current models?
