In recent memory, the idea of a performance hybrid could be seen as more gimmick than good idea. Leave it to Porsche to go for the gusto and turn the category on its ear. The all-new 2018 Panamera E-Hybrid is a triumphant realization of formerly good intentions coupled with a striking vision of the future. The engineers have gone out of their way to deliver a Panamera deserving of the iconic brand’s name. There’s an amazing host of new features to salivate over, just don’t do it on the gorgeous interior.
Thanks to a combined effort of a 2.9 liter twin-turbo V6 engine and the latest electric motor, it boasts a remarkable 462 hp, achieving a 4.4 second 0-60. This may be a hybrid in form but most definitely a sports car in function. With an EPA rated 46 MPGe fuel economy and ability to fully charge in 3 hours or less, this vehicle isn’t just pretty, it’s incredibly practical. Not only will it be able to handle most daily commutes, it will without a drop of gas.
As far as silhouettes go, despite the rear seats, there’s no mistaking the maker when seeing this car for the first time. It’s sleek, sexy and all sport with the type of styling that drew you to Porsche all those years ago. If you want to see one (or just want one) for yourself, it is available now at The Porsche Exchange in Highland Park. But don’t just look. This car is meant to be driven.
There are a multitude of optional features to customize your driving experience. But notably, even at its core, this is a pure performance machine. Refreshingly, the fact that it’s also a hybrid feels like an added bonus. The integration of form and function has never felt so fluid. There’s no need to wait for the future, it’s already arrived, and there’s no better place to experience the all-new Panamera E-Hybrid than the Porsche Exchange. With several models available and in stock, one can say the future has arrived in Highland Park.
