Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Hybrid

Porsche introduced Panamera Sport Turismo Hybrid concept car at this year's Paris Motor Show. The car is a plug-in hybrid, much like the Chevy Volt or the Toyota Prius Plug-In. But, being Porsches, they're far from boring. Or cheap.

The intention is for the Panamera Sport Turismo to achieve 30 km, which is about 18 miles, on electric power alone. It should also be able to reach 130 km/h, or about 80 mph, on electric power alone. The Sport Turismo Concept is a parallel hybrid, which means that the wheels can be driven by the electric motors, the gas engine, or both at the same time. When working together, the car produces 416 horsepower, enough to make it accelerate to 60 in under six seconds.

Porsche rarely makes a concept car just to make a concept car. The Boxster, Carrera GT, and the 918 Spyder all started off as concepts that made it to production relatively unchanged.
