Porsche Unveils Panamera S Hybrid Sports Sedan

I like most Porsche cars, they are nice looking and perform well overall, though there are a couple I am just not into. I am not a big fan of the style of the Cayenne SUV and I am not a fan of the looks of the Panamera sedan either. The Panamera looks like someone took the front of a 911 and grated a station wagon on the back.

Porsche has revealed an interesting version of the Panamera that uses a hybrid system if the four seat Porsche is something you like. The car has 380hp and has fuel consumption of 6.8L per 100km in the NEDC. That economy rating required the use of special low-rolling resistance tires, but Porsche says that on normal performance tires the car is good for 7.1L/100km.

The vehicle is able to hit 167mph on the top end and can run 0-60 in 5.7 seconds. The hybrid system has an all-electric driving range of one mile with the electric system able to power the car up to 50mph. The engine is a supercharged V6 at 333hp and the electric motor adds 47hp and acts as the starter and generator. The base price for the Panamera S hybrid will be $95,000 and it will hit the US later this year.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
