Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid with 500bhp in the works

Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid with 500bhp in the works

Sources state that Porsche is expected to reveal a sportier variant of the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

While the current model comes with a 330bhp 2.9-litre V6 biturbo motor and a 134bhp electric motor which makes a total of 464bhp, it is believed that the Panamera 4S’ motor could be used for the sportier version of the E-Hybrid. The Panamera 4S uses a 440bhp 2.9-litre engine which when coupled to the same 134bhp electric motor may ideally be capable of producing a total of 574bhp. 

Nevertheless, sales and marketing director for the Panamera, Stefan Utsch, stated that it is unlikely for both the internal combustion engine and the electric motor to make maximum power at the same time. Which could ideally mean that the true power figures may be lower than 574bhp, but it’s still a substantial increase from the regular E-Hybrid’s 464bhp. A considerable rise to justify a ‘4S E-Hybrid’ badge? Only time will tell, so stay tuned to CarWale for more news from the Geneva Motor Show in the weeks to come.
