The Porsche plant in Leipzig, Germany, is producing the 100,000th Panamera today. Back in 2009, the decision to produce this new Porsche model series and manufacture the first customer vehicle started a success story.

The milestone vehicle is a new Panamera S E-Hybrid in “rhodium-silver metallic”. This vehicle – the world’s first plug-in hybrid of the luxury class – made its debut before a world audience at the Shanghai Auto Show at the end of April 2013. 

The Panamera S E-Hybrid combines efficiency, sportiness and comfort with a very personal note: the number of possible combinations of factory installed exterior and interior color combinations and decors is over 1,500. With 416 hp (306 kW) of system power, the car’s NEDC fuel consumption is just 3.1 liters of fuel per 100 km, which equates to 71 g/km CO2 emissions. 

The car is also a Porsche Gran Turismo through and through: it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.5 seconds, and its top speed is 270 km/h.
