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.

Car Review: 2015 Dodge Challenger

Jul 22 2014 9:09am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

BMW International Open - Previews
PORTLAND, ORE. — When the Dodge Challenger was reincarnated in 2008, it was fashioned after the classic 1970 model bearing its name.

The changes are subtle — new front and rear fascias that feature the ’71’s split grille and tail lights, but nothing too dramatic. This is not to say the changes are not for the better. Everything takes an en ...
