Sources that claim to know what Porsche is thinking are saying that the sports car maker is planning on a plug-in hybrid version of its four-door Panamera for 2014. Porsche already has a hybrid version of the car that isn't a plug-in along with the diesel version that it sells in Europe. A plug-in hybrid would help the sports carmaker meet the ever-rising CAFÉ standards imposed by Washington.
Along with that plug-in hybrid Porsche, 49.9% Porsche owner Volkswagen also plans a couple of plug-in hybrid vehicles for 2014 or 2015 including the Audi Q7 crossover and the European VW Passat. I still think the Porsche Panamera is one of the ugliest vehicles on the road, at least from the back.

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.

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.
