Porsche offers a new plug-in hybrid

Porsche has announced something that is a first for the sports car company and that first is a plug-in hybrid. Porsche has offer the hybrid version of its Panamera four-door car in the past and the new plug-in hybrid will replace that car. The plug-in hybrid gets a more powerful 95 hp electric motor and a larger 9.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.

The total power for the new Panamera S E-Hybrid is 416 hp. The car can completely charge its battery pack in 2.5 hours when connected to a 240 V power source. The Porsche can also drive for 20 miles on electricity alone. Right now, it's unclear exactly how fuel-efficient E-Hybrid will be, EPA estimates are unavailable.

In addition to the new hybrid, Porsche has also added a pair of extended wheelbase Panameras to the lineup. These cars have 5.9-inches of additional rear legroom and are called Executive. The Executive version will be available with the standard engine or in turbo form.

This B.C. man brings million-dollar classic cars back to life

Nov 4 2014 3:02pm CST | Source: Driving Canada

Hidden away in a rural part of Vancouver Island, one of the world’s best automotive restorers brings million-dollar beauties back to life. VICTORIA, B.C. — “…and cheap too, at $1.3-million.” The relative insanity of this half-overheard statement doesn’t actually penetrate my brain. I am stunned, floored, gob-smacked by what I am seeing. Two, no, three Ferrari Daytonas. A pair of D-Type Jaguars, one wearing Ecurie Ecosse racing livery. Several (sever ...

Sinkhole Corvette ZR1 “Blue Devil” Finally Restored to Pre-Cave Glory

Nov 4 2014 1:48pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

Back in February, the earth opened its gaping maw underneath the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and swallowed eight historic Vettes whole. It was a sickening sight–one you can relive here, with video caught the moment the sinkhole appeared–leaving eight rare Corvettes with a value of around $2 million strewn about the cavern floor like Matchbox cars. Now, the first vehicular victim of the sinkhole has ...
