Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid

Spyshots Porsche Panamera Turbo par Gemballa : diabolique

Mi-août 2019, une curieuse Porsche Panamera Turbo – immatriculée LEO-GD 710 au son démoniaque et équipée de flics sur le pare-chocs avant ainsi qu’un spoiler sur l’aileron arrière – a attiré toutes les attentions des photographes espions sur la Nordschleife du Nürburgring. Mais quel est ce mulet surpuissant au son très fort? Un futur …

An Exercise In Traction: The Top 5 Fastest Accelerating Porsches

The current iteration of the horsepower wars is frankly a bit absurd. Today’s fastest street cars would be required to have full roll cages and chassis certification under NHRA rules. Even the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is fast enough to require a 6-point cage to make passes at your local drag strip. For the last several decades mind-bending acceleration has been part of the Porsche formula. Beginning with the 959, when all-wheel drive traction entered the fray, Porsches have become known for reeling in the horizon with astonishing speed. Thanks to their broad torque curves, an accelerating Porsche Turbo has never been easily caught. Today’s episode of Porsche Top 5 immediately follows the last. We are once again joined by Lars Kern for some good, old fashioned drag racing.

The Real Top 5?

As is occasionally the case with these Top 5 videos, this episode misses the mark just a bit. Four of the five vehicles featured are current Porsche production models, and the fifth is the Carrera GT. In order to squeeze the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid on the list, Porsche needed to choose an older supercar that didn’t match its acceleration. The notoriously tricky-to-launch Carrera GT is somewhat down on power and grip compared to the Panamera, and loses by some .5 of a second. Over such a short sprint, that’s a substantial gap.

The Panamera’s 3.4-second sprint is astounding, especially considering its immense mass. The Carrera GT, however, does not deserve to be on this list, impressive though it may be. If the #5 slot is going to be occupied by a traditional Porsche model, there are examples that are both faster and more closely fit the classic Porsche mold. Back in 1997 the 993 Turbo S achieved a 3.6 second sprint. Roll back the clock another decade and the 959 managed the same figure.

Save for the misstep with the Carrera GT, the rest of the list procedes in a very logical way. Two 911s, including the GT2 RS, appear on the list. For the sake of context, I think the 959 and the 993 Turbo S would have been worthwhile to include. The 991.2 Turbo S and GT2 RS are absurd, but their absurdity is almost tradition at this point.

Of course, this list is centered on road cars. If racecars were permitted (under the condition that they could be registered in an understanding locale) the ludicrous 1,500 horsepower 917/30’s 1.9 second sprint to 60 miles per hour would annihilate even the 918 Spyder.

Now where did I leave my Vermont plates…

3D Mapping a 919 Hybrid on to a Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid

While Porsches are regularly used as camera cars, this is the first time a car has simultaneously filmed itself and used 3D Mapping to project images on its bodywork. The ad is designed to demonstrate that Porsche’s racecar hybrid technology is directly related to the road cars. While showing the connection between the successful 919 Hybrid racecar and Porsche’s third most powerful production car ever is novel, the implementation is strange to watch.

Admittedly, the thing I wanted to see the most in this ad is the camera boom rig. The Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is an incredible machine. In the world of Porsche production cars, only the 918 Spyder and 991 GT2 produce more power. But in this video, the swiveling roof-mounted projection and filming boom is the star of the show. I’m left wondering more about how the active 3D mapping worked than asking questions about the car.

So if you are left with questions about the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, we have answers. If you want to know more about the 3D projection rig, I suppose we’ll need to wait. The rig looks fascinating, and hopefully Porsche gives us a how-its-made on this rig in the near future.

Get A Morning Wakeup With Porsche’s E-Jolt

In a world of sleepy hybrids, Porsche is determined to make it known that they build one of the most exciting hybrid sedans on the market in any segment. In an effort to bring their luxury hybrid performance monster, the, to the masses, Porsche took over the « Greendoor » coffee house in Carson California, just 2-miles from the Porsche Experience Center. As part of the experience, Porsche offered serious caffeine replacement in the form of rides on track in the new electric-assisted Panamera. The « E-Jolt » was promised to be a « shock they’d never forget », giving them an incredibly powerful heart-pumping adrenaline rush. What people thought they were signing up for was a coffee so strong you’d need to sign a waiver to drink it. For those who really needed a Grande-sized pick-me-up, those who signed the waiver, they were told to head outside to get their morning cup.

Is a 0-60 time of 3.2 seconds enough to wake you up in the morning? Sure a Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is an expensive proposition with a starting price of $184,400, but think of how much money you’ll save on $8-dollar lattes when you replace caffeine with a metric ton of adrenaline every morning. In a way, it’s practically a bargain.

In case you wanted a look at the kind of performance Porsche’s E-Charge cup of coffee can really provide, here’s a Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid taking a lap of the track at Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit during the North American media launch a few months ago.

This isn’t the first time Porsche has compared the experience of driving one of their cars to the caffeinated wake-up properties of coffee, however. Remember back a few years to the short film they made where Pat Long delivered a fresh cup of joe to Hurley Haywood in a 997 GT3 RS 4.0?
