As a name, the Porsche Panamera 4S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is a clunker.

But as a car, it's absolutely brilliant.

A 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 forms the first half of the equation, producing 443 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque on its own.

That then hooks up with a 17.9-kilowatt-hour battery (up from 14.1kWh in 2020-and-before variants) and an electric motor to produce a net 552 hp and 553 lb.-ft.

The 4S E-Hybrid can act as a pure electric vehicle for a stint, or it can operate more like a traditional gas-electric hybrid, blending power sources for a balance of efficiency and fun.

It's absolutely brilliant in execution, whether it's the way the powertrain functions or how gorgeous that full leather interior is.
