The Porsche Panamera has spawned a super-fast high-performance variant here at theGeneva Motor Show 2017. The Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid delivers Porsche 918 Spyder technology, shoehorned into a practical, luxury, four door-platform. It is the recipe for a very special package indeed. We took a closer look at the car live on the show floor!
The Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid features a 550 hp 4.0 litre V8 engine, combined with a 136 hp electric motor it produces a staggering 680 hp and 850 Nm of torque. An eight-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) with eight gears is used to send the power to an adaptive all-wheel drive system.
Those astonishing figures make for very exciting performance figures; zero to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 310 km/h. What’s more, the Panamera manages New European Driving Cycle consumption figures of 2.9 l/100 km and up to 50 kilometres of pure electric drive.
The Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid will get a European market launch in July 2017 with worldwide launches to follow during the second half of 2017. German launch prices have been revealed at 185,736 euros including VAT and 199,183 euros for the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Executive.
