2016 Porsche Panamera plug-in hybrid spy photos
Search Driven for Porsche for sale
Our spy photographers have snapped pictures of the next-generation Porsche Panamera in plug-in hybrid form. Both the prototypes spotted by our photographers have filler caps on both rear flanks, indicating that the cars seen here are plug-in hybrids. It's not known at this stage whether the plug-in hybrid drivetrain in the new car will differ significantly from the current model's.
In EV mode, the current-gen Panamera is able to hit a top speed of 135km/h. With both motors running, the current car reel off the 0-100km/h standard in 5.5 seconds. As in the current range, the Panamera plug-in hybrid will be sold alongside other drivetrain options, including V6 and V8 petrol motors, and V6 turbo-diesels.
Last year, Michael Mauer, Porsche's design chief, told Car Advice that new Panamera "will look better" and will feature a faster roofline, with some headroom sacrificed on the altar of improved looks.
