Moving further down the reality spectrum, we find the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, Smart Forstars and Lexus LF-CC Concepts. The Porsche previews a version of the next-gen Panamera for 2016 or so.

The Sport Turismo also uses a plug-in hybrid powertrain that will be sold in the current Panam, and Cayenne, and various Audis, from next year.
