Porsche showcases its state-of-the-art technology at the Dubai International Motor Show.

The latest state-of-the-art plug-in hybrid technology from Porsche will be showcased at the 2013 installment of the Dubai International Motor Show. Priced at $132,300, the Panamera S E-Hybrid is the first plug-in hybrid in the luxury class.

The Porsche Gran Turismo boasts 416 horsepower, accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and can reach a top speed of 270 km/h. It can also drive considerable distances in all-electric mode, with a range of up to 36 km and an electric driving top speed of 135 km/h.

The Panamera S E-Hybrid is a systematically advanced development of the parallel full hybrid drive system with a more powerful electric motor, a higher-performance battery that supplies more energy and the ability to charge it externally from the electrical grid.


The electric drive produces 95 hp, which is more than double the power of the previous model’s electric motor at 47 hp. It draws its energy from a lithium-ion battery, which at 9.4 kWh has over five times the 1.7 kWh energy capacity of the previous battery in nickel metal hydride technology.

The charging process takes less than four hours when connected to a conventional household electrical outlet. It can also be charged within two and a half hours if connected to an industrial outlet via the integrated on-board charger and the standard Porsche Universal Charger (AC).

Porsche has been consistent with showcasing their commitment to the emobility programme. In 2010, it revealed the 918 Spyder concept along with the Cayenne S Hybrid. Just a year later, it delivered the first units of the Panamera S Hybrid to the Middle East.

The company recently celebrated the world premiere of the production version of the 918 Spyder at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show; first units are scheduled to be delivered to Middle Eastern customers next year. Designed as a high-performance hybrid with plug-in electric module, the vehicles are limited to a worldwide production of just 918 individually numbered supercars.

The 918 Spyder is the first plug-in hybrid super sports car with a total of 887 hp combined from one V8 combustion engine with 608 hp and two electric motors. It can a top speed of 325 km/h, an acceleration from 0 to 100 in less than 2.8 seconds and an average consumption of a mere 3.3 to 3.0 litres per 100 km. is the first ever plug-in hybrid supercar.

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
