Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid in Detroit

Not an honor an automaker hopes to receive.

Autocar recently compiled a list of the UK’s 10 worst cars on sale today.  On that list was one plug-in vehicle: Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid.

The plug-in Porsche landed in spot #8.

8 – Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid

World’s first luxury sporting plug-in hybrid. But its power delivery is annoying, the price high and the base diesel better and more frugal in daily use.

Complete 10 worst list:

10 – Infiniti Q50 2.2D

9 – Ford EcoSport

8 – Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid

7 – Fiat 500L

6 – Mini Paceman John Cooper Works All4

5 – Lexus CT200h

4 – Nissan Micra

3 – BMW 7-series

2 – Alfa Romeo Mito TwinAir

1 – Citroën DS4 DSport THP200

    They seriously bloody think that the Citroën DS4 is the worst? Not exactly helping their (autocar’s) reputation their. Huh? I’m surprised that the Panacea S E-Hybrid was given this place given Autocar’s and VW’s lovely relationship.

    “base diesel [is] more frugal in daily use”

    Er, what? Did Autocar notice that a plug-in can, well, plug in?
    Indeed, the fairness and relevance of their assessment seem… questionable.

    Most traditional car magazines are clueless about how to test an EV. In the latest issue of Car the journalist who has just begun a long term test of a Leaf complains about charging inconvience, but they chose the journo that lives in a London row house so he can only slow charge at home with a long extension chord crossing the sidewalk. Duh!

      Hey, that’s modern day media/journalism for ya. Figure out what your conclusion will be then manipulate the facts so that you’re guaranteed to reach that conclusion.

    I have to admit the Porsche doesn’t seem to be the value leader. At the Buffalo Auto Show over the weekend, the $181,000 911 was ok, but it wasn’t as visually appealing as the $136,000 PHEV BMW I8, nor even the $95,000 Lotus Evora.

    Compared to that car, I think I got the better value with my Tesla Roadster.

    Diehard Porsche fans will disagree, which is why Porche can continually demand more $$ than their competitors.
