porsche’s new grand touring ‘panamera s hybrid‘ sports sedan aims to set a new precedent in luxury green transportation. the eight-speed automatic has a total power of 380 horsepower (333 from a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine and 47 from an electric motor) and should sit at around 6.8 l/100 km (35-40 mpg) with 159 g/km of CO2. making it the the most fuel-efficient porsche of all time and leading in the luxury hybrid class, however followed by the 2010 toyota prius at just under 100 g/km and the 2010 smart fortwo at 86 g/km of CO2.

at high speeds of up to 165 km/h the car can switch off the combustion engine and ‘sail’ on main roads and motorways, conserving fuel and still maintaining it’s speed. available in the uk for 86k pounds (including government taxes) and will be in the us for 95k dollars.
