Porsche has announced a handful of models for this year’s Panamera update, and we’ve been enamored by every bit of information that’s been released. Now, it appears that the Stuttgart-based automotive manufacturer is rounding out the new collection with the introduction of three final platforms — the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, Panamera 4S, and the company’s most powerful Panamera to date, the Turbo S E-Hybrid.
While the 455-horsepower Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and 433HP 4S are certainly noteworthy, thanks to their unique redesigns, they boast a tamer version of the company’s lauded electrified powerplant. The 324 kW/440 PS, 2.9-litre V6 bi-turbo engine is no slouch, however, achieving a 62 mile-per-hour benchmark in under 4.4 seconds, and touting more efficient energy utilization for long-distance travel. That being said, the real star of the show is the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, which calls upon a 563-horsepower 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine (paired with a 134-horsepower electric motor) for its dominant 689HP output. This boost in power is accompanied by the car’s newly-adopted eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, C-shaped Turbo front light modules, enhanced side air intakes, and a performance-focused Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) electric roll stabilization system.
