2014 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid — 30 Real-Life Photos — Live Configurator Link + 72 Images of Options, All Colors and All Wheels

Panamera desire but also confusion? Such is life in the fast lane.

This hugely-successful model has bloomed into an eight-strong fleet this year.

What is new? The Turbo S, Panamera LWB, Diesel and even this all-new plug-in e-Hybrid. (Versions outlined and pricing comparisons here in previous article.)

The Panamera S e-Hybrid slides in between the Panamera S and the Panamera 4S on price.

Surely, luxury limo’s are passe company cars for those with more dollars than actual eco guilt? No longer.

The Panamera S e-Hybrid is the first-ever plug-in luxury car in existence. Doubtful? Count them down.

1. Tesla = 100% EV

2. Fisker Karma = EREV with plug-in functionality, but company is defunct.

3. S400 Hybrid, BMW ActiveHybrid 7 series? = mild hybrids, both

4. Lexus LS600Lh = dual-mode hybrid without plug

5. Acura RLX Hybrid = dual-mode hybrid without plug

6. Infiniti Q50S Hybrid = dual-mode hybrid without plug

Unless you count the (very unfortunate) Chevrolet Volt — plug-in hybrid technology has been much trickier to achieve in real life than many luxury brands will openly admit.

This part-electric Panamera is also the fastest plug-in electric four-door on Earth!

How does 5.2-seconds to 60mph and a 167MPH top speed sound? Both are amazing achievements — especially when paired with the 20-plus miles of EV-only cruising in silence and the real-world economy figures in the high 20’s city, mid-30’s on the highway.

The official EPA stats are not yet available, so the above are ball=park figures. But the eMPG rating is likely to start with a 60 or 70 tally. This triple threat makes the new Hybrid Panamera a huge leap above any of the hybrids or EVs listed above.

 

How is this possible when there is barely a normal hybrid anywhere in the VW Group lineup?

Two words: 918 Spyder.

The shared plug-in dock of the 918 and the Panamera e-Hybrid is no coincidence — they share many core parts the skin. More doubting?

Why do I love Panameras so? A family member owns a 2009 Panamera S that drives better than any luxo-barge, ever. Crisp responsives, huge power — but little choppiness and a comfy ride. Magic. (Link opens previous BlackMagic TireWet Foam article.)

So: no more doubting.

Let’s imagine you are on-board and in agreement. How to buy the coolest Panamera e-Hybrid out there in the littlest time possible?
