After a short courtship as a concept car, the Porsche Panamera arrived in dealerships for 2010. Just two years later, Porsche once again stepped out of its traditional boundaries to release a hybrid variant: the Porsche Panamera S Hybrid.
2013 marks the second year of production for the Panamera S Hybrid, and its relative youth means it is largely carried over from 2012. The Porsche sedan pairs a 333-horsepower 3-liter V6 with a 47-horsepower electric motor to produce a combined 380 ponies and 428 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed transmission delivers power to the rear wheels. Despite its relatively thrifty 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway, the Panamera S Hybrid hits 60 mph in only 5.7 seconds and has a top speed of 167 mph.
The 2013 Porsche Panamera Hybrid comes in just one trim level: S. The S comes well equipped with a long line of standard features, including: projector headlights with LED daytime running lights; adaptive LED taillights; silver-painted six-piston brake front calipers and four piston rears; 18-by-8-inch front alloy wheels and 18-by-9-inch rear alloy wheels; Porsche Stability Management; air conditioning; Bluetooth connectivity; power windows and door locks with keyless entry; power and heated side-view mirrors; Porsche Communication Management with navigation, a 7-inch LCD screen, AM/FM/CD/MP3 capabilities, an auxiliary input and 11 speakers; cruise control;a power rear hatch with auto opening and closing; grained-leather seating with eight way power adjustments; a leather-trimmed steering wheel; and a 4.8-inch TFT screen in the instrument cluster with energy management display.
Luxurious exterior appearance and decked-out interior, but not as sporty, low mpg and underpowered
Low base price, comfortable ride and quicker to 60 mph, but lacks sportiness and not a huge mpg increase
Best-built hybrid of the bunch, super-luxurious and powerful engine, but poor fuel economy and expensive
Lower base price, up to 416 horsepower and as low as 4.4 seconds to 60 mph, but 7.5-hour charging time
