Default Ordered Panamera E-hybrid

In short. I cancelled my Macan Turbo PP order and ordered the Panamera e-hybrid istead
Expected delivery in April (March build).

I'm so excited and the launch of the hybrid and the price point really did tick all my boxes! We have huge rebates over here for Hybrids with taxes etc so it will be cheaper in the end than the Macan Turbo that I had on order even though the official price is more expensive. Also have charging right beside my parking spot in my garage which is very conenient and free!

Yeah, I know, I know, completely different car, bigger than the Macan and all that.. But hey, this will be fun! I had a test drive in the old Pana just recently and liked it very much and didn't felt it was too long/big. Felt sporty in a different way than the Macan and the new model should be even better and design wise looks great. The new tech is so compelling and the new interior should not be a disappointment either.

Have gone for a Night Blue metallic with the Sport Design exterior package, Panoroof, Porsche Innodrive, PSE, LED matrix headlights, 21" turbo wheels, 18-way seats, plus some more goodies. Will have time before lockdown so will fiddle around a bit with the spec.

Regarding interior, will go for either black full leather or the black/crayon. Leaning towards the black/crayon.

What not to like?
(except that the white does not suit the car imo)

Congrats!

New Panamera is going to be awesome.

Looking forward to your update here, but wondering what is the best Panny forum?

Lovely!

I have done three configurations of the hybrid panny this weekend - but I won't order one; I'm very happy with the Macan GTS, although may be in a couple of years... who knows. In my configs I have always selected the (free) black calipers option. That acid green color kills the look of the car (just my taste). One option that's also been on all three configs is the PSE; I don't think I would apss on that on any Porsche now that I have got used to it.

I'll be looking forward to delivery and your first thoughts on your new car, although it's still a long way to go. Congratulations!

Agree regarding the PSE. Think will be cool to have both a great sounding exhaust on those spirited drives in Sport Plus and then switch to stealth mode when commuting in the city centers at low speeds. All major negative aspects of the old panamera hybrid has been sorted with this new one which is great news. PDK (instead of tiptronic), 4wd instead of 2wd and also impressive changes to the drivetrain and estimated e-range.

Understand your comment about the acid green calipers, but not sure that they are that much in your face IRL. In the configurator they stand out extremely much and look strange. I looked at a black Cayenne Hybrid yesterday at my dealership and thought it looked cool with the hybrid specific acid green calipers and they don't stand out that much. Have you seen them in the flesh? They are part of the Porsche hybrid DNA and on 918 it looks great I think. But we'll see in the end how I proceed and if the black might win in the long run.

Yes, I've seen them at thea dealer, on a Panamera (v1) and a Cayenne. Perhaps the issue is that they were both white with silver rims.

How different is it from the older Panamera hybrid model? I had one as a loaner and I did not like it. Hope the new one is different.
