Porsche's working on a plug-in hybrid-electric (PHEV) powertrain for both its Cayenne and Panamera models, Motor Trend reports. The Cayenne SUV PHEV will likely debut in 2014, followed shortly by the Panamera, according to the publication. We've heard about the Panamera PHEV before, and that there would be a Cayenne PHEV as well isn't exactly a surprise.

The powertrain will include an electric motor that delivers as much as 100 horsepower and a combined 420 horsepower with its V6 gas engine. Electric-only range will likely be more than 15 miles. Also in store is a V8 twin-turbodiesel Cayenne for the US market. Porsche is also working on a plug-in hybrid powertrain for the 918.

Currently, Porsche sells a small number of Cayenne and Panamera Hybrids in the US, with sales of just 1,445 units, combined, through October.

      This is not an efficient hybrid, it must cost a lot and offer few mpg increase. The gasoline range extender is way too big and as soon as it start it consume enormous quantity of gasoline. The electric parts must add a lot of weight and cost, yet it don't go far. This is just a scam with hybrid marketing for the rich that want to go faster then small efficient cars. Postpone any porsche expenditures till they offer a over 100 mpg car or truck. Postpone also any other car expenditure toward all other brands till they hit more then 100 mpg even in winter.

      German car makers and plugin promises.. But if it's true it will be the first plugin SUV and since SUVs aren't the most efficient it will be battery hungry. Maybe 24kWh for a Volt like range. The price tag could suffer. And in turn lead to yet another broken german plugin promise.

      Another vain 1st Gen Hybrid with a RIDICULOUS BATTERY... Just making it trendily Plug-In will not work for me. We need something more ambitious guys ! Want an all Electric driving train, with a Huge Battery like >84KWH in Tesla Model X, and just add the Range Extender that is missing in the Model X, so a few times per year, I can still take the familly far away from home and do 1000KM per day in any un-plug country, driving on 100% Electric most of the rest of the year. Just do a Model X with a non-tracting Range Extender, and the Porsche design and comfort and reliability... Simple. No need for just another Hybrid.
