People asking for coffee are served Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid shots instead
How to you like your coffee? Americano? Flat White? E-JOLT?
It’s been a while since we’ve met the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid for the first time but a kind reminder of its existence is never too little, too late, Porsche thinks.
The 671 hp (680 PS) V8-powered four-door saloon gets not only the good ‘ol combustion-sourced horsepower but also some battery juice, for extra performance; and, yes, of course, environmental purposes.
Benefiting from the 918 Spyder expertise, the two-ton executive model can reach 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill after a mere 3.4 seconds, and a 193 mph (310 km/h) top speed. These figures are impressive all right, but nothing compares to testing them by yourself, even in a taxi ride.
This just happened in Porsche’s last stunt, where unwitting customers (who totally are actors, acting) are served the strongest cup of coffee in the world: the E-JOLT. This stunt may be scripted, but we’re convinced that the passengers’ reactions during the exhilarating ride are all natural.
If you’re now wondering what is the actual strongest coffee in the world, let us help you with that info: it’s suggestively called Death Wish, and it features the international symbol for poison/death — a skull and crossbones — as a logo. You're welcome.
Why didn't Porsche use the newer, fresher, better-looking Panamera Sport Turismo instead? Did the customers asking for coffee got their cups in the end? These are questions we can't answer. Would we like to have a ride in this thing? For sure!
