Porsche has released more details on its Panamera S Hybrid four-door, scheduled to debut at next month's Geneva Motor Show.

Essentially the same powertrain found in the Cayenne S Hybrid, the 2012 Panamera S Hybrid will pair a 333-horsepower, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 gasoline engine witha 47-horsepower electric motor. Power is routed through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Total combined power is 380 horsepower and 427 pound-feet of torque, which will reportedly rocket the Panamera from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds onto a top speed of 167 mph, according to Porsche.

EPA ratings are still forthcoming, but on the European combined test cycle, the Panamera S Hybrid is expected to achieve up to 35 mpg when rolling on low-resistance tires. A Porsche North America representative tells us the actual U.S. MPG numbers will likely ring in slightly higher.

The hybrid Panamera is slated to reach U.S. dealers later this year, and will sticker for $95,975 (including destination). Although that’s roughly $5200 more than the base price for a V-8-powered Panamera S, Hybrid models are equipped with Porsche’s adaptive damper system, a rear window wiper, and navigation as standard equipment.
