Porsche plug-in hybrid comes with supercharged engine, power cord

PORSCHE has created a hybrid car which sips less fuel than a Toyota Prius and has the performance of a Holden Commodore V8.

The only catch: Porsche’s fuel miser costs $300,000. You could buy more than 10 Toyota Priuses for that.

The secret to merging absolute power and world-leading fuel economy? Porsche’s first plug-in hybrid comes with a supercharged engine and an extension cord.

Unlike most hybrid cars on sale today Porsche’s new Panamera sedan can be driven up to 36km on electric power alone before its supercharged V6 engine takes over.

A regular Toyota Prius can barely travel 1km on electricity in ideal conditions before the petrol engine kicks into action.
