The new hot streak of Porsche/Audi partnership is bearing all kinds of fruit. The latest is a 700 hp RS7, the follow-up of the same hybrid powertrain from the Panamera Turbo S E-hybrid.

The report comes from England’s EVO, who spoke with Audi’s chair of design, Marc Lichte. Lichte told the publication that next RS7 drive get two drivetrain options: the 700 hp hybrid or a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 making 650 hp.

The V8 liking also do duty in the Panamera Turbo, the Bentley Continental GT, and the new Cayenne. Producing 650 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque for the RS7, the V8 drive be mated to an 8-speed tiptronic transmission.

The hybrid, meanwhile, also starts with a 4.0-liter V8, but it’s betrothed to an electric motor that producing something in the neighborhood of 150 hp. In the Panamera, the locomotive and the motor combine to produce 680 hp and 626 lb-ft of torque.

That’s good enough for 0-60 springs of 3.2 seconds, and a district-mile time of just 11.5 seconds, while also returning a combined 55 MPGe.

Suppose to make its debut later this year and go on sale some time in 2018.
