With the new Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Executive, the German automobile has entered an all-new territory and is likely to stir the waters and cause jitters. Not that this car is entirely new, it’s been around since 2016, but the addition of the E-Hybrid system, things just go a little more tweaked for more elaborate goodness. It is ripe for competitive performance.
To underpin how capable this vehicle can be, it shares the MSB platform found on the new Bentley Continental GT, which has its good share of enviable specs. The Turbo S E-Hybrid rides on a powertrain that produces 680 hp and 626 pounds of torque.
Power is sent to all four wheels through a 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine that generates 550-hp. An e-motor set between the engines gives a further a 136-hp e-motor. All this is done with the aid of an eight-speed PDK twin-clutch transmission.
This sophisticated roadmaster can drive purely on electric power if the 14.1kw/hr battery is sufficiently charged. You just need to engage the E-Power drive mode and you are good to move.
When you are riding on the Hybrid Auto mode, the drivetrain power will be drawn alternately between the internally mounted engine and the e-motor for exceptional optimal efficiency. This car also comes with the brand’s traditional Sport and Sport Plus modes that have been admirably updated specifically for the E-Hybrid.
When you engage the Sport mode, you lower the battery charge to maintain it at the very a minimum level. This allows the e-motor to sufficiently assist the internal combustion engine. Once you move to Sport Plus mode the, there is a quicker battery charge so that the e-motor performs at its maximum.
In the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Executive, we see a vehicle that has made all effort to tap the high-end sedan market through futuristic tech and super-luxury specifications. This kind of sophistication is becoming common among players in the high-end tier and we can forecast an increased appetite for uniqueness by customers too. This is pretty good work!
