As we know the Porsche has been implementing their E-Hybrid technology in the majority of the car range and the Panamera has just introduced their new Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Tourismo…That is one long name!
The particular model combines a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 which produces 550bhp, with an electric motor, charged by a lithium-ion battery adding 136 bhp, giving this Panamera a total power output of 680 hp, developing 850 Nm of torque. This means that 0-62mph takes 3.4 seconds!
The Panamera has also had a few tweaks in design and in our opinion actually very handsome. It is not as good looking as the Maserati Quattroporte but definitely more appealing than the BMW 7 series, Mercedes S Class in terms of exterior design. The Porsche has a 4+1 seating, but realistically you are looking a four-seater.
The interior of the new Porsche is stunning, with glass finishing giving it a very clean look, although we worried about fingerprints and smudges, so best way to avoid this is to wear gloves!
The Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is priced from £140,868 inc VAT (including Panoramic roof).
