Declassified the appearance of the new hybrid hypercar PorscheApril 19, 2020
Autovisie on Sunday, April 19, distributed patent images of the new Porsche hybrid hypercar. As can be understood from the computer model, the German automaker is creating a successor to the 918 Spyder model, and by developing a super hybrid, the brand’s designers were inspired by the sports concept 917, which won the Le Mans 24 hour race 50 years ago.
The exterior of the novelty is designed based on the modern conceptual model 917, which debuted in March 2019. On patent photos you can see the original single interior layout, a non-standard door opening mechanism and headlights with a pattern in the style of modern cars of the German brand.
There is no information on the technical equipment of the new hypercar, in addition to the fact that it will not become fully electric. The presence of the internal combustion engine is indicated by the filler neck and exhaust pipe. Perhaps the successor to the 918 Spyder will again be hybrid.
One of the options for the power unit for a hypercar is the use of a turbocharged V6, created to participate in Formula 1. In this case, the top model of the German brand will be the answer of Mercedes-AMG One. The creation of a hybrid component for Porsche engineers will most likely be helped by specialists from the Croatian startup Rimac.
Serial production of the hypercar of the German brand will begin no earlier than 2025. However, this does not mean that the details will not be disclosed earlier: there is a possibility that the concept of the top-end Porsche model will be revealed this year and will coincide with the demonstration on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the debut victory of Porsche 917 in Le Mans.
