Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo

The Panamera Turbo S e-Hybrid Contains A Wonderful Dichotomy


Porsche’s big wagon has nearly 700 horsepower, it’ll go nearly 200 miles per hour, and it weighs more than 5000 pounds. Somehow it is big and comfortable but also incredibly sporty. Somehow it manages to dawdle around in silent electric-only mode, then seconds later crank up a huge turbocharged V8 when you swap to Sport mode. It can move five people in comfort, as well as all of their stuff. It can also haul ass. Carfection reviewer Henry Catchpole says « It’s a bit like a 918 Spyder in this [wagon] body, » and I don’t know about you, but that sounds tremendous.

The Panamera Turbo S e-Hybrid Sport Turismo is one of the longest names in Porsche nomenclature history, but it all sort of makes sense when you boil it down. Obviously it’s a Panamera. The Turbo S means it has a 550 horsepower turbocharged 4-liter V8. The e-Hybrid bit gives the car a 136 horsepower electric power bump. And finally, Sport Turismo means it’s got a humpback that can fit your tall luggage better than the standard Panamera body with a trunk.

« Possibly the most ridiculous car I think I’ve ever driven »

And of course Henry means ridiculous in the most endearing way possible. This car is a step toward everything for every driver. It’s fast and fun and incredibly loud when you want it to be, but calm and quiet and eco conscious when you need it to be. This is imperative for many large European cities, which don’t allow cars to run on gasoline power in city centers without paying a quite hefty fee. You can easily swap to eco mode and crawl around the city on full EV power before you head out to the country for a romp around on full turbo power. It’s the best of both worlds.

Porsche Introduces Hybrid Version of the Panamera Sport Turismo Wagon

Sleek and stylish, the new hybrid Panamera will offer looks as well as unrivaled performance.

Occasionally, you have to pinch yourself and recall that, not long ago, thoroughbred racing cars struggled to match the kind of stats seen on the spec sheets of today’s road-going sports cars. Such is the case with Porsche’s Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo, which incorporates the best of their hybrid technology into an uncompromising, opulent package. With the space-age powertrain, this comfortable cruiser can sprint to 60 faster than it takes most people to say its full name.

This mouthful is one of the most powerful machines in the Porsche lineup, with a total of 680 horsepower and an asphalt-churning 626 lb-ft of torque—the latter figure available at just 1,400 rpm thanks to its hybrid powertrain. The lion’s share of that grunt comes from a 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged V8, but crucially, it is assisted by a 136-horsepower electric motor. By inheriting the « boost strategy » of the 918, delivering power with an eight-speed PDK, and utilizing all the traction offered by four wheel-drive and a locked rear differential, this sumptuous cruiser might be the ultimate stoplight-to-stoplight sleeper.

Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo

That means the E-Hybrid Sport Turismo surges to 60 in 3.2 seconds, snags 120 MPH in a scarcely-believable 8.5 seconds, completes the quarter mile in 11.6 seconds, and continues onward to a top speed of 192 miles-per-hour. Twenty years ago, the fastest 911 Turbo couldn’t dream of those sorts of numbers, and now a Porsche « station wagon » is the one boasting those outrageous stats.

With the rear seats upright, the Sport Turismo offers 15 cubic feet of luggage space, but that figure grows to 45.7 cubic feet with the backrests folded.

2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo Pricing

Despite the starship performance, this new hybrid Panamera will retain all the amenities which have made it such a popular commuter, like the digitalized Porsche Advanced Cockpit and assistance system options such as Porsche InnoDrive. With 15 cubic feet of storage space, a higher roofline for improved ingress and egress, and a 30-mile range on the electric motor alone, the newest, fastest Panamera is even more accommodating. That unrivaled combination of comfort, performance, and practicality comes at a price, though—the 2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo starts at $188,400 in the US and $214,900 in Canada with deliveries expected sometime in the Spring.

Yet, considering the package, that price begins to sound reasonable.
