The berlin German has a hybrid version that gives a good performance, although it seems that is not enough. And is that the brand plans to launch a Porsche Panamera hybrid with V8 engine. A higher performance alternative that would inherit the technology of the Porsche 918 Spyder and that would come to be placed as the reference segment. It is still early to give exact dates, but if the math does not fail, we could see it in the market in a short period of time.
As we said, up to now, we have the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, the hybrid version of the sedan German receives a configuration that is giving very good results. Its price in our country is about 110,000 euros, an amount that provides us with 462 horsepower extracted from a hybrid system that combines an internal combustion engine of 330 horsepower and an electric. A version that has enough arguments to convince anyone.
Although it does not seem enough to own Porsche. Recent reports speak of a confirmation on the part of the brand. This means that we would have a variant with a V8 engine and a mechanical hybrid in the range in a few years. Be inspired by his brother Porsche 918 Spyder, with the technology and the efficiency of the supercar. In terms of power, it is early to talk about figures, but seeing what they have been able to do with the 918 Spyder, we can begin to dream.
Some dare to say that this Porsche Panamera hybrid with a V8 engine would with more than 700 horsepower. Others are more cautious, and speak of a power that would not exceed 600 HP. In any case, we speak of figures of madness.
