According to preliminary data, it will be the latest model of four liters eight-cylinder hybrid engine with double turbine, which is able to generate 542 horsepower and 770 Nm of torque. The engine was originally installed on the Porsche Turbo. In addition, the second half of hybrid installation will consist of high-motors, which will incredibly raise the capacity of the strong car.

According to the experts the car should come out with all wheel drive system and 8-speed automatic PDK, which is already available at the company’s engineers. In addition, Blum told that Porsche will not install hybrid installation on such vehicles as 718 Boxster, 718 Cayman and 911, although it looks pretty weird, because generally obtained power of the future Panamera will actually exceed the performance of the 911 Turbo, which represents the company as its fastest car.
