Porsche has unveiled the most powerful version of the Panamera Sport Turismo line-up, the Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo.
The flagship model combines a 4.0 V8 biturbo with 136 hp electric motor, resulting in a system output of 500 kW/680 hp. Porsche said that the boost strategy used in the Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo has been taken from the 918 Spyder. Even at 1,400 rpm, the system delivers a maximum system torque of 850 Nm. The plug-in hybrid accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 310 km/h. Porsche claims a fuel economy of 3.0 l/100 km (NEDC). The car has a pure electric driving range of up to 49 km and electric top speed of 140 km/h.
The decoupler integrated into the hybrid module is electromechanically actuated via an Electric Clutch Actuator. The result is short response times and a high level of comfort, said Porsche. The 8 speed PDK transfers the power to the standard Porsche Traction Management (PTM) adaptive all-wheel drive system.
The 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery can be charged within 2.4 to 6 hours, depending on the charger and power connection.
The standard equipment includes Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC Sport), Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), high-performance Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) braking system, 21-inch alloy wheels in a 911 turbo design, Power Steering Plus, the Sport Chrono Package and auxiliary air conditioning. The new model also features adaptive three-chamber air suspension including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM).
