With the 2018 Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid coming is too exciting. Because Porsche is finally introducing a plug-in hybrid. It will be the flagship of the model line for the first time. So it’s combining the 4.0-liter V8 engine from the Panamera Turbo. Then adding an electric motor and that stack of batteries underneath the car!
For I am so excited to report, the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid delivers a total output of 680 hp and 626 lb.-ft. of torque.
To be clear folks, a E-Hybrid according to Porsche is a plugin hybrid. However instead of adding more electric they added turbo! Yet as BMW states:
The key to achieving this lies in intelligent energy management. All which is used to control how the combustion engine and electric motor operate together. For this reason, the first MINI plug-in hybrid model is not solely focused on efficiency. However then it’s uncompromising in pursuit of driving fun.
SO NOW I AM SAYING RECOGNIZE IT’LL BE A PORSCHE SIZE OF VEHICLE!
OMG folks that is a-lot more room for speed, torque, acceleration and watch out!
Most noteworthy, only the limited production 918 Spyder has ever had more power. So this Panamera plugin accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. However it is 3.3 seconds for the Executive model. Finally it also has a top track speed of 192 mph.
Turbo Plugin Hybrid
So Panamera 4 E-Hybrid uses a twin-turbo V6 engine. One that’s also combined with an electric motor. Also the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is another compelling demonstration. One of the performance advantages of plugin hybrid technology.
Because the new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid also utilizes a boost strategy. For that’s one derived from the 918 Spyder racecar electric. For that also combines a 136 hp electric motor. I mean can you say with a 550 hp twin-turbo V8 engine.
918 Spyder Has Results
So shortly before delivery of the first vehicles, the Porsche 918 Spyder is outta control. For it is also beating its own benchmark values. Marking the success moreover of the final tuning measures. So the Porsche super sports car is now even more capable. Especially of putting in a strong sprinting performance.
For it’s reported the vehicle accelerates from zero to 60 mph in only just 2.5 seconds (-0.2 seconds).
So the Weissach package accelerates big time because it’s a larger vehicle. That’s consequently from zero to 124 mph on the track in 7.2 seconds (-0.5 seconds). It also reaches the 186 mph mark after 19.9 seconds (-2.1 seconds) on the track.
So the decoupler is installed in the Porsche hybrid module is actuated electromechanically; acting as an electric clutch actuator (ECA). I am not quite sure what that meant at first but I get it. For it’s shifting electrically but I still want a clutch for real! Look, I love electric cars. However and I still want to control my destiny!
In addition and celebrating its world premiere. For expect it at the Geneva Motor Show (March 7 to 19, 2017). So the 2018 Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. It is expected to reach U.S. dealers by the end of 2017.
