This Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Could Be Yours For A Song

Want to put a new Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo in your driveway? It’ll cost you a good hundred to two hundred grand, depending on which version you choose. But this one will likely sell for a fair bit less.

And with good reason, because as you can see, it’s not exactly in pristine condition. Though it’s a 2018 model with only four hundred miles showing on the odometer, it’s been crashed. Just how hard, we couldn’t say. But the fact that it’s being auctioned off on Copart – an online clearing house for wrecked cars – means it was probably deemed a write-off by the owner’s chosen insurance company.

Though listed as a 2018 Porsche Panamera 4, what we believe we’re actually looking at is a Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo. The body-style (with its elongated roof and tailgate) is evident from the photos, and along with the “hybrid engine” mentioned in the auction description, the acid-green details (on some of the badges and brake calipers) tell us this is an electrified model – but evidently not the top Turbo S E-Hybrid version.

That one goes for a good $190k, and this one’s valued (when it was new) at $144,685. So it’s likely that the owner splashed out on some key options (as so many Porsche buyers do) to elevate the price beyond the $106,900 base MSRP.

Of course, in the state it’s in, this Panamera will be worth a fair bit less than that. Just how extensively damaged it is, we couldn’t tell you, exactly. It was evidently involved in some sort of side impact around the driver’s side rear wheel, and it was apparently forceful enough to deploy at least some of the airbags. But the pictures of the undercarriage, suspension, and engine bay don’t look too bad. So it might run just fine after some repairs.

If you’re more sure than we are, you can place a bid. The auction’s set to close in three days, but bidding is sealed, so we couldn’t tell you where it stands currently. Suffice it to say that it probably won’t reach six figures, though.
