Panamera Turbo S EHybrid revealed! 680hp with 31 miles all electric range!
So I guess there's not going to be a regular Panamera Turbo S then?
I also highly doubt that the next M5 will be able to out perform that blistering 060 time of 3.2 seconds. Also the all electric range of 31 miles is super impressive! I do wonder if Stealth.Pilot would rather have this than the next M5? Lol! Check it out. http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...ower?fbfanpage

Dude, it's essentially going to be a Porsche 918 but with 4Doors. Insane!

I think I will buy one of these eventually, but: 1) after they launch the update with the new Porsche HUD (not sure if 2018 MY will have it) AND 2) after someone else owns it for a year and 5000 miles!

I like. I won't like the 185k price tag though.

Not all is lost, while the Pam Turbo or Turbo S no doubt probably better on track, M5 should be able to beat them in a roll.
In fact based on the latest Auto Bild test, the new Pam Turbo needs 35.1 seconds just to get to 280km/h, even the current F10 M5 is quicker than that. It's not a knock against the Porsche since it looks like they prioritized downforce over top speed acceleration, but since many in this forum are more interested in a rolling competition than a track competition, I think the M5 still is a good choice.

Unfortunately the Turbo S is way out of my budget, a loaded turbo is nearing a quarter of a million (cdn) for a sedan!

Porsche's factory time for the Turbo on the ring is 7:38, but they haven't released one for the S EHybrid.

If you check here it says 23xx kg for Turbo S Exactly due to battery(ies) weight New m5 should be 100150kg lighter than current one Hence difference will be 400600kg

So far this has become my all time favorite car to own, and I don't see that changing. I've driven the 650S hard, and this has been a all around driver, track, mountain roads, and street driving. I feel bad from my M4 less than 6000 miles in 1.5 years. I will have to figure out the next DD summer 2018 so we will see what's in the market. Just finished a little quick bath ..........next the M4 today.

On a straight line, the weight penalty seems negligible in this case.......but what about in turns (e.g. Nurburgring) We'll waitandsee.....
