On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack, Jonny Lieberman explores the aspects of the all-new, second-generation four-door from Porsche. The facts of the car are (of course) impressive: 550 hp from a 4.0L, twin-turbo V-8, coupled with a new eight-speed PDK transmission that powers all four wheels, and all-wheel steering, which means the big Porsche is a serious performer. Since the Executive model gets a near–6-inch stretch, it’s easy to declare the Panamera the world’s ultimate factory limousine. However, is this the sedan Porsche should be building? To answer this question, Lieberman travels 89 years into the past and has a look at what might have been. What does he discover?

Does a hybrid Cayenne really make sense?
Buying a plug-in hybrid does not mean giving up on driving excitement – at least if you elect one of Porsche’s plug-ins. We’ve already detailed the furious performance of the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, but Porsche is also fitting its Panamera with a lesser-powered fuel-saving powertrain called the 4 E-Hybrid. It combines a biturbocharged V6 engine with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack, providing all-electric mobility while also boosting output to a healthy 462 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque – gains of 132 hp and 185 lb-ft over the base car. “Our first goal was performance, and at the same time, we wanted to improve the efficiency of the vehicle,” says Gernot Döllner, vice president of the Panamera product line. “But we had a clear focus on performance.”
Though U.S. economy figures haven’t been finalized, the car is rated for 31 miles of all-electric driving under (often optimistic) European tests, yet it will still tear all the way to 172 miles per hour when given enough derestricted autobahn. So, it’s quicker, faster, more powerful, and also more fuel efficient than the standard Panamera. And you thought hybrid cars were boring.
