Infiniti has started throwing stones at the Porsche Panamera S Hybrid. The Japanese luxury brand aims to pit its M Hybrid against the electrified German five-door in a fight for the title of the world's fastest-accelerating production full hybrid. How's that for a mouthful? The Porsche Panamera S Hybrid dishes out 380 horsepower and is good for a 0-60 mph time of around 5.7 seconds, all while returning up to 30 mpg highway. Of course, you'll be asked to pay for the privilege of ownership. The Panamera S Hybrid commands an MSRP of $95,000.

The Infiniti M Hybrid, meanwhile, is good for 360 horsepower from a 3.5-liter V6 engine and a potent electric motor. Infiniti hasn't outright said how quickly the M Hybrid can do the 0-60 mph dash, but we can say from experience that the vehicle is no pushover. All told, the M Hybrid can deliver up to 32 mpg highway, but is it quicker than the Porsche?

We'll find out tomorrow. Hit the jump to see the teaser for yourself.

      I honestly think the new directions Infiniti and Lexus have gone with their M and newly unveileved GS are going to be the industry leaders. The german cars look more or less the same, and arent really groundbreaking.

      I'm going with the Infiniti. About 300 lbs lighter and only short 20hp. Torque is going to win anyway.

      Infiniti wins by default due to the Porsche being a whale.

      As unattractive as the Porsche Panamera is, it still will qualify as a beauty queen next to any Infiniti that have been drawing inspirations from a bloated puffer-fish and Picasso lately. Even if Infiniti M Hybrid squeezes the same acceleration numbers as Porsche, nothing will help hiding its hideosity.

      I'll repeat a comment I left in the recent Juke R article: When it comes to trolling, Nissan is the master.

        And Porsche is usually the unfortunate victim. Nissan: Here's a car with 911 turbo performance for Cayman money! GTR Porsche: FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU Nissan: Oh, and here's a car with Cayman performance for half price! 370Z Porsche: FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU Nissan: Why pay $95k for a hybrid sports sedan, when this one is cheaper and faster! M35h Porsche: FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU Nissan: TROLOLOLOLOL and here's a frog shaped crossover with 500hp! Autoblog commenters: FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU

          The 370z is slower than the cayman s in all aspects.

          Slower, but not by much. I think a Cayman S abd 370z were compared by Road and Track when the Z came out, and it posted a lap time only 1 second slower, with slightly better acceleration I believe. Cayman won, but not by $30k.

      The Infiniti M is hands down the best car in its class...easily a better car then the Lexus GS and BMW 5 series...

        I agree with everything you said except for looks, but thats just personal preference. I think that the Panamera is a more attractive car, but I think the Aztec isnt too bad either haha.

        Best handler in its class? From what source did you get this false info? Oh wait, you're Fried_Troll. You make up facts.

      The Infiniti M doesn't get the love it deserves. It's a great car, especially in hybrid guise.
