The new Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo design gives the four-door sports car a rejuvenated look that I cannot wait to see on the road. And, honestly, all it really took was the slight redesign to the rear. Now, I’m even more hyped for the new styling with the addition of the 2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo.
Powering the new hybrid four-door Porsche is a 550 horsepower 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine and 136 horsepower electric motor. The total output of the system is rated at a meaty 680 hp and 626 lb-ft of torque. The hybrid tech that Porsche used for the new Panamera was derived from the 918 Spyder, their hypercar model. While this new Panamera won’t reach hypercar numbers, it still exceeds expectations: 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, 11.6 quarter-mile, and a top speed of 192 mph.
The 2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is available for ordering now and will hit markets in Spring 2018, It comes with a base MSRP of $188,400, not including the $1,050 delivery, processing, and handling fee.
