Atlanta, Georgia — Two worlds, two global debuts: At the Paris Motor Show, Porsche is celebrating the debut of two sports cars with completely different characteristics – the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and a 911 racing car. The new sports sedan combines a performance-oriented hybrid powertrain and sustainable e-mobility with dynamic handling and luxurious driving comfort. By contrast, a new edition of the world’s best-selling race car, the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, is reserved exclusively for the race track. The new Panamera range as a whole and the Macan Turbo equipped with the new performance package will also be unveiled to the public in Paris for the first time at the Paris Motor Show.
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid delivers a system power of 462 hp due to the combination of a 2.9-liter V6 gasoline engine with an output of 330 hp and a 100-kW electric motor. The maximum torque of the vehicle is 516 lb.-ft. with an electric range of up to 31 miles.
Both global debuts will be presented at the Porsche stand in hall 4, stand 212, at the Paris Expo, Porte deVersailles tomorrow, September 29, 2016, at 8:15 a.m. Eastern.
