Streamers pushed on the top
The electric drive and sporty performance are no longer in opposition, is well known. New, however, is that Porsche is offering the top model of a series Hybrid technology. And the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is expected to remain the only one of its kind.
So far, the Porsche range was clear. Where "Turbo S" was written on it was the hottest drive unit in it, which had to provide a series. You will have to get used to it, because for at least 185 736 euros, the Panamera is a 382-Volt will be added to the electric package. Result: 3.4 seconds for the Standard sprint from zero to 100 km/h and 310 km/h top speed. For the series Director, Dr. Gernot Döllner, the car is the "Start of a new strategy" in Porsche.

The V8 Biturbo engine with 404 kW / 550 HP is not just narrow-chested, is doped by a 100-kW / 136-HP permanent-magnet synchronous electric machine, resulting in a system power of 500 kW / 680 HP. The exuberant performance is one side of the coin, the immense weight of the other. Approximately 300 kg of additional mass to make lithium-ion-battery, auxiliary units and control devices, of which the battery weighs approximately 130 kg. For the complete vehicle, the scale indicates more than 2.3 tons.
The battery unit consists of eight modules, each with 13 cells. The common thrust of the two motors adds up to 850 Newton meters, which progresses only in areas of large diesel engines, but also in the entire speed range between 1400 and 5500 Revolutions can be used. However, the new top model wants to apply not only to as the Sprint giant, but also as an Eco-athlete. 50 kilometres of emission-free range in there, what corresponds according to Göllner, depending on the practice conditions and driving real 30 to 40 kilometers. According to EU-Norm, an average fuel consumption of 2.9 litres per 100 km comes out.

Up to 400 Newton-meters of torque can the System in the sliding mode for the recuperation, that is, for re-charging the battery, use. Using a selector switch on the steering Wheel, the driver determined, as the carrying capacity of 14 kWh is used. In pure E-mode, the four-door glides under moderate rolling noise, up to a maximum of 140 km/h, the charge can be "frozen" so that only the combustion provides the propulsion and the electrical is protected, reach for a later time. The current possible Radius of emission-free travel of the navigation monitor displays a yellow line on the map, the fuel consumption is specified with 16.2 kWh/100 km. That Porsche doesn't forget at all, green paint, a sports car to be a brand, to show the driving modes "Sport" and "Sport Plus" on the same switch.
The Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is seen as a starting grid for a large-scale renovation of the Model range. The new combined Sport Turismo, there are already as an E-Hybrid, and if a new Cayenne will be presented, it should surprise no one, if even there, the Turbo-S-arrives Version with electric boost. The next Macan, was recently read, should not come as a pure electric vehicle on the market. Many building sites, which is why Porsche chief Oliver Blume expected, "the transition phase is a real challenge". Only the 911 series and Boxster/Cayman are expected to remain from the power generation spared, because small, weight-optimized car bodies don't mix well with large batteries.

Even if it is to be expected that a goodly number of delivered customers will be charged models with prices beyond the 200 000-Euro brand that brings the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid quite a bit of equipment for other models, additional charges apply. He rolls on 21-inch alloy wheels, has air suspension and an adaptive suspension. The enormous longitudinal dynamics is held by Ten-piston fixed caliper brakes in check, the 420 millimetre brake discs made from ceramic composite material of biting. LED headlights are also standard on-Board, inside, the occupants enjoy the comfort of the seats, panels out of Nussbau-root wood, and a Bose sound system with 710 watts of music power.
The most Surprising on the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, however, is neither the sophisticated drive technology, nor the upscale furnishings. In the case of test rounds on a barred circuit to one of suspicion can come, the sedan had the half of their significant weight in the pit lane. Energetic of the Bolide of a Return storm to the next, lightly the smallest Steering commands to be implemented, with influences of the front axle drive torque remain subliminal. Fierce direction and load changes, the whole blood-athletes acknowledged with a stoic calm, at no time consider, in the next Moment, the physics could get the upper hand over the released kinetic energy. Equally snappy and balancing of the Turbo-Stromer prefers his cars, where the standard Torque Vectoring System ensures precise adherence to the ideal line.
Plenty of reason, therefore, to see in the side lettering of "e-hybrid" a self-conscious Statement, its color Acidgreen makes it hard to remain unnoticed. A different view of quality characteristic is, meanwhile, landed on the trash heap of history: The supplied compression-ignition engine under the Porsche Panamera drive in the future without the "Diesel"lettering.
