There is a name at Porsche, where enthusiasts pause for a moment. Because they know that it is a commitment to pure performance. Because they know that a Panamera with the abbreviation Turbo S marks a performance level, which is unequalled. But this time, it is not about an even stronger engine.
The combination of the internal combustion engine and the electric machine is decisive: 2 drives that ideally complement each other. The internal combustion engine builds up power and torque with increasing speed. The maximum torque of the electric machine is immediately available. Result: The system torque of 850 Nm is already present at 1,400 rpm.
The 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine with twin-scroll turbines achieves 404 kW (550 hp). The e-machine has 100 kW (136 hp), the overall system performance is an impressive 500 kW (680 hp).
The sprint from 0-100 km/h is completed in only 3.4 seconds. 200 km/h are reached after only 11.9 seconds. The top speed: 310 km/h.
Drive technology, whose roots lie in motorsports. Which was tested on the circuit. And find their way to the road in the new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo.
Six driving modes
With Porsche Communication Management (PCM) and the mode switch on the steering wheel, derived from the 918 Spyder, you can choose from up to six driving modes – as well as the SPORT Response function for maximum responsiveness.
In E-Power mode, the vehicle operates on electric power alone. If the accelerator pedal is depressed beyond the resistance point, the combustion engine switches on, enabling you to demand the maximum available total system power output at any time.
2. Hybrid Auto
The intelligent Hybrid Auto mode offers the greatest operating efficiency for trips across town and country. In this mode, the Panamera E-Hybrid is driven by the electric machine, the combustion engine or by both together as the situation demands. For the best possible combination of the two drive systems, the optimum operating strategy is derived from information relating to driving profile, state of charge, road topography and speed.
In E-Hold mode, the state of charge of the high-voltage battery is maintained at the current level. This means that the energy of the battery can be used at a later time, e.g. for all-electric driving or boosting.
When the vehicle is driven in E-Charge mode, the high-voltage battery is charged by the combustion engine. This is useful if activated, for example, on a section of motorway before a drive through town on electric power alone.
In SPORT mode, the combustion engine is activated by default and accelerates the Panamera E-Hybrid Sport Turismo in interaction with the electric machine. The drivetrain and chassis adopt a sporty setup. In addition, all the energy of the high-voltage battery is made available for boosting.
6. SPORT PLUS
In SPORT PLUS mode, drivetrain and chassis are tuned for maximum performance. The top speed of 310 km/h is also available in this mode. The performance reserves of the combustion engine are used to charge the battery – the energy produced can then be exploited for boosting as required.
