Technical details of the upcoming Porsche Panamera reveal advanced design and powerful hybrid propulsion.
Germany – The automotive world is buzzing with anticipation as initial technical insights regarding the next-generation Porsche Panamera emerge. As Porsche gears up to unveil its third-generation Panamera later this year, new details hint at groundbreaking performance and design enhancements.
The successor to the current Panamera iteration will boast a sturdier chassis and a stretched wheelbase, offering more room within the cabin. Built upon an evolved MSB architecture, the model will incorporate cutting-edge technologies, including rear-wheel steering and a variable all-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring.
Petrolheads will appreciate the choice of pure combustion engines, spanning V6 and V8 variants. Still, the show-stealer is set to be the Panamera’s plug-in hybrid lineup. Replacing the existing Turbo S E-Hybrid, the forthcoming Panamera will introduce the Turbo E-Hybrid version. This beast will harness a staggering 650 horsepower hybrid engine, combining a bi-turbo V8 engine and an electric motor integrated into the car’s transmission system. The standalone electric motor will generate 188 horsepower—54 HP more than its predecessor. Powering the motor will be a 25.9 kWh battery, promising a 70% surge in electric range, reaching up to 85 kilometers per WLTP cycle. Despite its capacity, this new battery can draw 11 kW and weighs 300 kilograms, a marginal increase of 22 kilograms from Panamera’s current hybrid variant.
In terms of sheer performance, the next-gen Panamera is projected to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in approximately 3.1 seconds, reaching a blistering top speed of 315 km/h.
Porsche aficionados and auto enthusiasts alike can expect the grand reveal of this revamped Porsche Panamera towards the end of the year.
