Porsche’s latest Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid now offers 700 horsepower, making it the Stuttgart carmaker’s second most powerful model


Porsche has announced the latest addition to its Panamera line-up, the Turbo S E-Hybrid, which packs in a whopping 700hp, making it the new flagship and most powerful variant in the Panamera range.

To put that in perspective, that’s the same horsepower that a 911 GT2 RS makes, and it catapults the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid into second place on Porsche’s current power leaderboard, behind the Taycan Turbo S.

The 700hp output comes courtesy of a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 engine that produces 571hp, combined with a 136hp electric motor, and the total output is 20 horsepower up over the previous Turbo S E-Hybrid. As a result, the car now takes 4.4 seconds to sprint to 100km/h from a standstill (down from 4.6 seconds previously), and top speed goes up by 2km/h to 280km/h.

Porsche has also updated the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid’s battery pack, with capacity increased from 14.1 to 17.9kWH. As a result, the electric range has been boosted by 30 percent, and the car can now travel up to 50km using electric power alone.

As the flagship model, the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid also comes with the full suite of Porsche’s chassis and control systems, including the Porsche electric roll stabilisation system with Torque Vectoring Plus, rear wheel steering, as well as ceramic brakes.

Other updates to the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid include three new alloy wheel designs, and two new body colours to choose from, Cherry Metallic and Truffle Brown Metallic. The Turbo S E-Hybrid is also available in Sport Turismo guise for those wanting a bit more boot space.

Official pricing for Singapore has not been announced as yet, but the previous 680hp Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is listed at S$835,888 before Certificate of Entitlement and options (S$847,888 for the Sport Turismo) on Porsche’s website, so expect the latest one to retail around that price tag or thereabouts.
