The proliferation of different hybrid powertrains has profoundly subverted the offerings of most brands, with Porsche offering three different hybrid systems for the Panamer, for example, the two weaker ones, the 462-horsepower 4 E-Hybrid and the 560-horsepower 4S E-Hybrid 2.9-liter V6- The strongest in the current range, the around 700-horsepower Turbo S E-Hybrid, is based on a 4.0-liter V8 petrol. The block, which independently emits 571 horsepower and 770 Nm of torque, is complemented by a 136-horsepower electric motor with a system torque of 870 Nm.

After the upgrade, the top model, which is capable of 20 horsepower and 20 Nm more, will only take 0-100 km / h sprint for 3.2 seconds instead of 3.4, and will have a top speed of 315 km / h instead of 310. Considering its weight of 2425 kg, all this counts as an overwhelming engineering performance! The rechargeable battery has not been forgotten either, its capacity has been increased from 14.1 to 17.9 kWh, so it can cover up to 50 kilometers in purely electric mode, so the green license plate still works in Hungary, just as our German license plate car is proud to bear the This letter.

Improves stability with a visually fitting, protruding and sliding rear spoiler

So we can travel some of the city’s kilometers as an electric car, but that doesn’t mean that emission-free driving is low-speed, because by choosing EV mode, we can easily accelerate to 130 km / h, and even expect the dynamism expected of a Porsche. With the “Drive Mode” switch on the steering wheel in the Hybrid position, the car decides how to start the petrol engine according to how it is used, which is unobtrusive inside, unfortunately the classic V8 organ of the biturbo engine has been pushed into the background in favor of a quiet cabin. In addition, the driver does not have to make any compromises, as the Panamera is ready to refute any stereotype that may make it suspicious of classic sports models due to its size, construction, or the weight already mentioned.

For taller ones, the two-seater rear row is suitable, but the motorized adjustable seats can increase the feeling of comfort. The rear center seat also gives the rear seats the ability to control ventilation and many other functions

Just look at the lines of the second generation, the more athletic shape clearly evokes the style of the 911, its proportions are familiar despite the longer wheelbase, the side embossments fit nicely into the doors, the striped taillight with the three-dimensional lettering of the brand name is a real hit, and a prominent and widening rear spoiler also impresses much-seen car fans. The car’s stability-enhancing wings blend into the tailgate in the same way that the Panamera itself can disguise its vicious driving characteristics with its timelessly elegant lines.

The Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid can also be used as an electric car for 50 kilometers on a single charge. With its 136-horsepower electric motor, it’s dynamic enough in both the city and on the highway

This effect is even stronger in the cabin, where modern extras fit harmoniously into the world of design, which can be called a classic. Here you can feel the leader of the past and the present at the same time. The ergonomics of the Volkswagen Group have been developed almost to perfection in Stuttgart. The seats, steering wheel, buttons and switches, materials used and layout are brilliant, as is the space available. Drivers of completely different physiques can also enjoy driving in the belief that the car has been tailored directly to them. Of course, it also happens that not everyone is happy with every detail, for example, the government was found to be too thin by one of us, while the others thought it was ideal. In the same way, not everyone is equally fond of the interior color world, but it is not disputed that the interior design is above average in this Porsche.

It just gives you a taste of the high-end technology found in the nose of the Panamera. The stylish cover of the V8 is split in two by a tower brace

The same can be said for manageability. It behaves an order of magnitude sportier than similar-sized limousines, yet you can comfortably read serpentine in the back seat. With its air-sprung, four-wheel-drive chassis, it sticks to the road like a rail car. It delivers its thrilling performance to the asphalt in the Sport + position, which provides maximum torque in all cases, even under floor gas acceleration, and its all-wheel drive has been programmed to allow the rear to crush a bit before the sophisticated electronics intervene. Of course, the hybrid Panamera can’t win against physics either, but it uses all its knowledge to get out of it with a wide smile on our faces as a family, as a pack.

The luggage compartment is lavishly upholstered, we can take the charging cable with us in a sophisticated bag

The price of this experience is asked for in the same way as the legendary sports cars, the Turbo S E-Hybrid can be configured from HUF 74,270,000 at the current exchange rate, and the Sport Turismo design boasts a 15 liter larger cargo space at a surcharge of HUF 1,097,000. long extralist…
