Today Porsche announced that they will be bringing the hybrid version of the Panamera S to the upcoming 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Just as the “hybrid” designation implies, the main focus point of this car will be its fuel consumption and the level of CO2 emissions. As you might have expected, they are quite low.
