2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is a 680-HP wagon

Because it's a plug-in hybrid - which takes up to six hours to recharge depending on what you're plugged in to - it comes with a bonkers official economy of 97mpg and an EV range of 31 miles. That means it accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 310 km/h.

The all-new Audi RS 7 will get an optional 700bhp plug-in powertrain derived from the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, Auto Express can confirm.

Elsewhere, the E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is similar to the standard models.

TV stalwarts Liz Dawn and Tony Booth die
ITV have also released a statement, sharing their heartbreak at the sad news about one of Coronation Street's most-loved stars. News of her death comes just two weeks after she was rushed to hospital with severe breathing problems.

The Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo has a range of up to 49 kilometres and a top speed of 140 km/h when driven exclusively using electric power, which result in no local emissions.

Like the sedan, the Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo features a 550 hp 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 accompanied by a 136 hp electric motor for a total system output of 680 horsepower and 626 lb-ft of torque.

The Turbo S E-Hybrid tops the Sport Turismo range, sitting above the Turbo ($390,700), diesel-powered 4S ($325,900), V6 4 E-Hybrid ($255,800) and 3.0-litre V6 petrol entry-level model ($232,500). It will deliver power to all four wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The same spoiler also shifts into a different angle at speeds above 90km/h to minimise cabin turbulence when the panoramic sunroof is open. Also, it gets a boot space of 424 litres which can be extended to 1,294 litres by folding the rear seats.

US Attorney General Weighs In on Free Speech Debate
There are ways to protest without "denigrating the symbols of our nation", Sessions said. Both policies, she said, are in line with university policy "given limited capacity".

All the good stuff is standard, like all-wheel drive, ceramic brakes, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport including torque vectoring and the Sport Chrono Package.

If you have £140,868 burning a hole in your pocket and want the most appealing Panamera you can buy, your local UK Porsche dealer will now be happy to oblige.

Doomed to Fail, Senate Debates Whether to Vote on Healthcare Bill
But despite the tweaks, a single hearing on the bill, and lobbying by senators and President Donald Trump , those efforts failed. Cassidy was asked earlier Monday on CNN whether Collins' opposition would mean it's over for the bill and said, "Yes, it is".
