New details on the 2012 Porsche Panamera Hybrid

Posted on by + 12

Not much is known about the 2012 Porsche Panamera Hybrid so any information we can get is fine by us. And seeing since the 25,000th Panamera just rolled off the Leipzig plant in Germany today, it’s nice to know that the Hybrid version is not getting forgotten. What we hear about the future hybrid is that it will share the same engine as the Cayenne S Hybrid . This means the green Panamera will be loaded with a 3.0L supercharged V6 engine that will produce 333hp. This will be combined with an electric motor that will develop 47hp. Together these two components will allow the Panamera Hybrid to deliver 380hp and 427lb.-ft. of torque at 1,000rpm. If fuel economy matches the Cayenne S Hybrid as well then the Panamera will be looking at 34.4mpg.

The price for the 2012 Porsche Panamera Hybrid is not yet known and, unfortunately, neither is the sales date, but we’ll get back with more information as soon as we uncover it.

It will take a little longer dude! Just wait and relax. The spy photographers are doing their best to spy shot the Porsche Panamera. By simply looking with the car, I can say that it has a better styling.

It is a pure tease. I’ve been waiting for so long for the information about this Panamera Hybrid, but they only provide us few details. By the way, if it is really true that Panamera will use the Cayenne S. That would be better.

Porsche will fit all Panamera models with 4.8-liter V8 engines from launch. The entry-level S and four-wheel-drive 4S get a 400-horsepower version of that engine. The Panamera Turbo gets 500 hp from its bi-turbo version of the V8 engine. All are mated to Porsche’s seven-speed, dual-clutch PDK transmission.

I’ve been seeing these quite a bit lately, see at least one a day. Thought this would be rather rare considering the cost, but I guess not.

I found that the Panamera looks much better than photos suggest even in the bland silver of the photos accompanying this article and the interior is to die for.

I actually had the opportunity to drive in one, and I like it... I’m not a fan much of coupes though, they are impractical to me. I do like this car though. 

The Panamera Hybrid is definitely one car that the industry is anticipating. Will surely set the standard for hybrids if it works.

ooh cool engine performance huh? I can’t wait to know more details on account with this.

Wow, this is so much better looking. It actually looks good. More like a Porsche should look.

Honestly, I don’t like the front hood of this car it’s kinda boring.
