If you believed that the Porsche Panamera Turbo S and the 911 (991) Turbo S less powerful than their rivals, we have great news for the fans of the German brand. By 2017, Porsche will offer hybrid versions of the Panamera Turbo S and the 911 Turbo S. Apparently, Porsche will use the same technology found on the 918 Spyder supercar.

According to Motortrend, Porsche will scale down the electric traction motors and lithium ion batteries, while the electric motor from the rear can be fitted between the petrol engine and the PDK transmission. As a result, we expect the hybrid versions of the Panamera Turbo S and 911 Turbo S to deliver round 700 hp.

For those who don’t know, the Porsche 918 Spyder is powered by a 4.6-liter V8 engine that delivers 608 hp, while the hybrid module consists of a 115 kW electric motor and a decoupler that serves as a connection with the combustion engine. On the front axle the 918 Spyder comes with a 95 Kw electric motor.

With a total output of 887 hp, the Porsche 918 Spyder accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 7.9 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 23.0 seconds. The Porsche 911 (991) Turbo S uses a turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that delivers 560 hp.

Bolted to the PDK transmission and using the optional Sport Chrono Package, the 911 Turbo S accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds, while top speed is limited at 318 km/h or 197.5 mph.

The Porsche Panamera Turbo S is powered by a 4.8-liter V8 engine that generates 570 hp and 750 Nm of torque. Helped by the V8 engine, the Panamera Turbo S zooms from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds (with Launch Control), while top speed is limited at 310 km/h or almost 193 mph.
