Most Powerful Luxury Sedan
Wednesday 29 novembre 2017 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Porsche unveiled one of the most powerful production vehicles it has ever made-and it’s a hatchback.
The 2018 Panamera Hybrid Sport Turismo hatchback sedan gets 680 total horsepower and 626 pound-feet of torque, more than both the $143,600 911 GT3 and the massive $118,100 Cayenne Turbo SUV.
To achieve these results, it uses a hybrid boost strategy from the track-dominating 918 Spyder roadster.It can hit 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. Top speed is 192 mph-an exceptional feat but not unexpected among auto industry insiders. "Porsche’s approach to plug-in hybrids is that they are providing a solid range [of options]," said Joe Wiesenfelder, the executive editor of Cars.com. "One of the areas where BMW continues to fall down is in the electric range and their plug-ins. These are big heavy vehicles that they’re trying to make into hybrids.At least Porsche is trying to check that box."
