Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid

Porsche recently held their Worldwide media release of the new Panamera Sport Turismo and the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid at the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit. Over the course of two weeks, over 300 journalists from 47 countries were given the opportunity to test the new models extensively. Here are just a few things they had to say about the Porsche models:


 “What’s the best-looking Porsche on sale today? That question just got tougher to answer, thanks to the 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo. It’s the third body style in the Panamera family following the standard sedan and the long-wheelbase Executive variant. It can carry more stuff compared to the standard Panamera, and it can fit five passengers, too—a first for Porsche’s luxury cruiser.”

“t’s as majestically refined and comfortable to drive as the standard Panamera Turbo, with no discernible difference. Quite how Porsche has made such forceful acceleration feel so relaxing I don’t know, but it would be many hours and hundreds upon hundreds of miles before you’d feel the least bit fatigued driving this.“

“It is really hard to find anything I dislike about the new Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo. All my feedback on the previous generation Panamera; mainly about the interior design and infotainment have been addressed and the good things including the sports car-like performance and handling are even better than before.”

“As the replacement for the last-generation Panamera Turbo S range topper, the Turbo S E-Hybrid stands at the forefront of Porsche’s new, performance-oriented hybrid strategy. Alongside the 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder, it’s tasked with burnishing the credibility of gas-electric powertrains as performance aids.”
