Porsche told what to expect from a hybrid version of the coupe 911

In a recent interview, representatives of the German brand talked about what to expect from a version of the Porsche 911 sports coupe, which will be equipped with a plug-in hybrid engine.

The Porsche 911 is one of the most iconic cars on the planet and an ever-evolving piece of Porsche engineering, offering customers one of the most advanced platforms ever built. The Porsche 911 has been criticized for not changing much from generation to generation, and to some, the lack of sophisticated innovation may seem negative, but to others, the 911’s slow-paced nature creates a vehicle that is not only well-designed but also optimized out of the competition.

The biggest change in the history of this sports car could come very soon with the introduction of hybrid technology. Hybridization for the model will be done in the name of performance, not fuel efficiency, the company says.

Porsche has an impressive track record in both hybrid and electric motors that few other car manufacturers can match. Add to this the financial strength of parent company Volkswagen Auto Group and you have a powerful recipe for successful innovation.

The Porsche 918 hypercar debuted with Porsche’s hybrid technology, and the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid brought this technology to the masses. In addition, Porsche unveiled the Hybrid LMP1 racing car, which was able to beat the toughest endurance race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans 919.

As noted by the automaker, Porsche will not be introducing technology into its most important model unless it has proven itself in other Porsche vehicles.

When will we see the Porsche 911 Hybrid? So far, there is no official data on this.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote about the strangest restomode from the Porsche 911. MIT Electric Vehicle Team and PhenomenArts showed a project of an original restomod based on the Porsche 911 sports car. This car combines unusual components and solutions.
