Well, that was fast. Shortly after debuting the all-newin 4S and Turbo flavors, Porsche's already debuting another model, and it hasn't even hit dealerships yet! Say hello to the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, which is just as drop-dead gorgeous as the other Panny variants, but now it's electrified.
Featuring a 14.1-kWh battery and a 136-horsepower, 295-pound-foot electric motor, the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid will drive up to 31 miles on electricity alone. The full brunt of its electric power is now available as soon as the pedal is depressed, as well.
Combined with its 2.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V6, net output is 462 horsepower and 516 torques. It's certainly not a hippie-mobile, with a 0-to-60 time of 4.4 seconds. It'll rocket all the way up to 172 mph, to boot. Power reaches all four wheels after moving through Porsche's eight-speed dual-clutch transmissions.
As with many other plug-ins, the Panamera can be dealt with remotely. Charging and cabin cooling can be set through the Porsche Car Connect app, which is available for iOS and Android, as well as Apple Watch. The gauges have been tweaked to better showcase its hybrid operation, and there are multiple specific vehicle modes for hybrid operation, as well.
Pricing has not yet been announced, but the Panamera Hybrid is expected to go on sale by summer 2017.
