Porsche will make two hybrid versions for the 911

Porsche is working on two hybrid versions of the 911 sports car, which will become part of the family at the next generation change. One of them will be an option, not inferior to the power of the Turbo modification. About this, with reference to the source inside the company, reports Auto Express.

The basic plug-in hybrid Porsche 911 will be located on the step above the base Carrera. Technically, it will be identical to the new Cayenne E-Hybrid, which has an electric motor between the engine and the transmission, and a lithium-ion battery under the boot floor. According to Auto Express, the electric “stuffing” of the sports car will be adjusted not for fuel economy, but for improving overall performance.

A more powerful option, which will be offered along with modifications of Turbo and Turbo S, will rise at the top of the line. Now something similar can be observed in the Panamera family, where there is a simpler E-Hybrid and the flagship Turbo S E-Hybrid.

The current 911 family is represented by 24 different versions of the sports car: this includes the basic Carrera, lightweight Carrera T, all-wheel drive versions, versions in the body of the “targa”, the most powerful Turbo and Turbo S, and the hardcore GT2 RS and GT3.
