2012 Porsche Panamera S Hybrid: 2011 New York Auto Show Live Photos

Follow Viknesh

We first saw it at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show but this time it’s making its North American debut, where else but at this week’s 2011 New York Auto Show. We’re talking about, of course, the 2012 Porsche Panamera S Hybrid, which was put up on display next to a new high-performance Panamera Turbo S and its 111-year-old ancestor--albeit recreated--the 1900 Semper Vivus.

In case you’ve forgotten, the 2012 Porsche Panamera S Hybrid develops a total output of 380 horsepower--333 horsepower from a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 and 47 horsepower from an electric motor.

Porsche claims that the sedan's sophisticated hybrid powertrain is good for a fuel economy of 34.6 mpg for the European combined cycle. Note that this figure applies only when the car is equipped with Michelin low rolling resistance tires. Switch to standard tires and you’re looking at a fuel economy of 33 mpg.

Despite the frugality, the Panamera S Hybrid will still accelerate from 0-62 mph in a brisk 6.0 seconds flat and go all the way to a top speed of 168 mph.

  1. The Panamera should only be seen from the front.

  2. It's pretty ugly and not particularly green. Want good looks and green, better get the Fisker Karma. Reviews so far suggest it's a real Panamera killer! The more social responsible image that comes with it should make you better liked by your fellow motorists and -depending where you live- your friendly local tax man...
