With some extraordinary specifications and features both the Porsche cars: Panamera S Hybrid and 911 Carrera GTS have come to impress the car enthusiasts. While each one of these two has its own sets of specs, strengths and weaknesses the majority of the Porsche lovers will get into a sort of dilemma which one to pick. So here is a comparison between the Panamera S Hybrid and 911 Carrera GTS to help them choose which one’s for them.
Both the Panamera S Hybrid and Carrera GTS comes with V-6 engines that can really give a speed boost when required. The Panamera S Hybrid comes with the engine that can generate 380hp at 5,500rpm which looks pretty good. However, with this level of horsepower it looks like the Panamera is more suited for those who are not too speed loving drivers. On the other hand, the Carrera GTS can generate 408hp at 7,300rpm which is a bit better than the Panamera S Hybrid and can produce powerful performance because of the increased horsepower.
If power is what you are looking for then Carrera GTS is the car for you. While more power means more speed so the Carrera GTS seems to have better edge over the Panamera S Hybrid. The S Hybrid can get to the 60 miles mark within 5.7 seconds which is already pretty impressive but the Carrera GTS can do the same within a lot lesser 4.4 seconds which beats the Hybrid out of the water. In the top speed category also the GTS can easily beat the Hybrid because the former manages to get to an impressive 190 mph (max) while the latter can only manage to get to 167 miles per hour maximum. However, in the matter of mileage the Hybrid wins clearly as it is rated to give 30mpg on the highways while the GTS can give 25mpg.
The Price and the Verdict
The Panamera S Hybrid is priced at $96,150 while the Carrera GTS stands at $103,100. But the buyers will have to consider the increased level of performance the GTS can provide and considering the price: performance ratio the Carrera GTS looks like to have the best deal.
