Porsche has announced it will debut an all new hybrid model at the Geneva Auto Show on March 1st. No details have been provided beyond that, but the vehicle is believed to be a hybrid version of the Panamera sedan.

Likely to wear the Panamera S Hybrid badge, it will use the same powertrain found in the Cayenne S Hybrid which uses a 3.0-liter V6 engine that is supercharged and mated to a 47-hp electric motor for a total of 380-hp and 427 ft-lbs of torque. Porsche claims the Cayenne S Hybrid can travel up to 40 mph on just electric power and can cruise on pure electric power at speeds of up to 97 mph.

In addition, Porsche will also hold the European debuts of the stunning 918 RSR hybrid race car concept, as well as the Cayman R, 911 Black Edition and Boxster S Black Edition.
