Porsche has recently pulled the wraps off the 2014 Panamera and 2014 Panamera S E-Hybrid, ahead of their public debut scheduled for the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show.
After leaking just a few hours ago, the facelifted versions of the Porsche Panamera and Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid are being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker releasing the first official images with the two models. Porsche has updated the front fascia and the rear end of the 2014 Panamera and we can now see new bumpers, redesigned headlights, upgraded taillights and some other tweaks, while the cabin remains pretty much the same.
The brand new hybrid in the Panamera lineup is named the S E-Hybrid and it’s coming with an electric motor, with 95 HP, and a 9.4 kWh lithium-ion battery, which can be charged in just 2.5 hours using a fast charger on a conventional socket. The model has a 36 km range in full electric motor and it’s burning just 3.1 liters of fuel every 100 km. The Panamera S E-Hybrid can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.5 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 270 km/h.
The 2014 Porsche Panamera is now getting a 3.0 liter V6 twin-turbo engine, with 420 HP, which is replacing the 4.8 liter V8 with 400 HP from the S version, while the diesel model is now producing 300 HP. The upgraded Panamera will be launched in Germany in July, and it will be priced from 81,849 euros for the diesel. The Panamera S will cost 101,841 euros, the 4S 107,196 euros and the S E-Hybrid 110,409 euros. This will be followed by the GTS and its 121,595 euros price. The top of the line Panamera Turbo starts at 145,990 euros and the Panamera Turbo Executive at 163,364 euros.
