The 2021 Porsche Panamera 4S and Hybrid models are all about power and performance! Porsche recently pulled the cover off the new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, which is now the king of Panamera Mountain. Whether you like the styling or not, one thing is for sure: The Panamera is Fast with a capital F!
The new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is the second-fastest car the automaker currently produces. This E-Hybrid variant combines a four-liter twin-turbo V8 (563 horsepower) with a 134-horsepower electric motor. Total system output is 689 horsepower and 642 lb-ft. of torque, according to Porsche.
By contrast, the 2021 Porsche Panamera 4S creates 443 horsepower from its 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6. The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid adds an electric motor to the mix to boost total system output to 455 horsepower.
Like the new Panamera 4S E-Hybrid, the Turbo S E-Hybrid employs a 17.9 kWh battery that is 27 percent more energy-dense, according to Porsche.
Porsche says now is the time for them to expand what they call their “E-Performance” strategy, which means they will offer three Panamera plug-in hybrid models for the first time. Drivers can pick between a standard sedan, the “Executive” or long-wheelbase version, and finally, the Sport Turismo.
With the standard Sport Chrono package, the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid sedan and Sport Turismo will hit 60 mph in three seconds flat, while the Executive does the job in 3.1 seconds – all 0.2 seconds faster than previous models, according to Porsche. The Turbo S E-Hybrid sedan and Sport Turismo also offer the quickest acceleration from zero to 124 mph of any 2021 Panamera at 10.9 seconds.
