We have already passed along news of the impending hybrid drivetrain that will appear on versions of the Porsche Cayenne, and now we hear word that they may show up on the upcoming Porsche Panamera as well. This is logical, as the drivetrain options in the Panamera are expected to mirror those of the Cayenne and both vehicles will be built at the same plant. Details include a 3.6 liter narrow angle V6 engine sourced from Volkswagen and lithium ion batteries providing the juice for the packaged electric motor(s). Development for the Panamera has been done with assistance from Audi and Volkswagen, so it would not be much of a surprise if we hear the similar hybrid powertrains start the trickle down the range to other models from these three manufacturers. Of course, we will keep you informed with the news.
