Not so long ago, it became known that large, premium, and sporty cars like the Panamera had lost some ground to the Model S, which offers solid performance as well. But in a recent Autocar interview with Porsche development chief Wolfgang Hatz confirmed, for the time being at least, there won't be an all-electric Panamera. “We are a sports car firm, and that brings with it certain expectations," Hatz explained. "A Tesla is a fine car, but you cannot drive it enthusiastically without losing range or performance too quickly. Until the technology offers a solution to those problems, we will not be looking at launching such a car." Instead, Hatz said his firm is leading the way with plug-in hybrid technologies.
