When Porsche hinted about making a hatchback Panamera, the world went wild. The Panamera Sport Turismo can be ordered with a 330 horsepower V6, but wagons need speed! That is why Porsche has endowed it with a V8-powered Turbo S. The twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 makes 550 horsepower, but that wasn’t enough. So they somehow found room for a 14 kWh battery and a hybrid drive.
It can be charged by normal 120v AC power, Porsche’s 240v home charger, or even the 800v DC quick chargers at every Porsche dealer. With a full charge you will have 680 horsepower and 626 lb-ft of torque. Acceleration is an order of magnitude faster than anything else in this category. A family hauler with room for 5 and their luggage, that is capable of low 11-second times in the quarter-mile. With an electric range of 30 miles, it is the ultimate sleeper. This one was ordered in Sapphire blue with matching wheels along with a black interior.
Let’s assume your grocery list includes lettuce, greens, and a few steaks. Leaving the parking lot you will be at 60 mph in 2.7 seconds. Your t-bones will be shattered but your salad might be tossed if you invoke launch mode. Porsche builds the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid not because they need to, but because they are the only ones who can combine every luxury imaginable with enough power to beat everyone at your local track.
