2011 Porsche Panamera Gets Brake Energy Recovery System

Published by on Jun 19th, 2010, 1 Comment

It doesn’t come in as a surprise that car manufacturers are trying to make their cars faster, yet more fuel efficient. A great example is the 2011 Porsche Panamara that has been announced to feature brake energy recovery systems as a standard on all future models.

2011 Porsche Panamera 4S

According to official numbers, the new tech is going to help the Porsche Panamera Turbo to reduce fuel consumption by 0.7-liters / 100 km. And add the new low roll-resistance, all-season 19-inch tires, and you’re going down another 0.2-liter / 100km. The new brake energy recuperation system is going to help the Panamera S and 4S models to increase their fuel efficiency by 0.5-liters / 100km.

Good job Porsche, we’ll now wait patiently for a V8 engine to actually go below the 10% fuel consumption. Think that’s possible?

This shape grows on me gradually. No match for the Aston Martin Rapide’s svelte lines, though.
