30 Cars That Prove Why Station Wagons Still Matter

  1. Alfa Romeo 156 GTA Sportwagon

Even though the gorgeous Alfa 156 wasn’t available in the USA, most wagon fans know about this fantastic retro-designed model. Alfa presented the GTA version featuring a high-revving 3.2-liter V6 producing 260 HP. And, they even offered it as a station wagon they called the Sportwagon.

They introduced the Sportwagon in 2001 and produced it until 2005. Alfa made just 1,678 of those highly collectible wagons. All 156 GTA Sportwagons have a unique exterior, full leather-trimmed interior, special wheels and race-tuned suspension with bigger brakes.

  1. Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Tourismo

The Panamera caused quite a lot of media attention when it first debuted as the first Porsche sedan. But soon, it proved that it is worth the name and Porsche fans grew to accept it for what it is. For its second generation, Porsche offered the Sport Turismo model, an elegant station wagon. It comes with just a slightly different rear end, which was just enough to be a wagon.

But this is not the end. Porsche also offers the Panamera Sport Turismo as the Turbo S. They equipped it with a hybrid drivetrain. With this wagon, Porsche combined practicality, advanced technology, old school power and luxury.

The combined output of gasoline and the electric engine is 680 HP going to all four wheels for the best traction. Despite weighing over two tons, this Panamera is capable of a mind-blowing 3.2 seconds 0 to 60 mph time. And that is faster than many current sports cars.
