Porsche is preparing a hybrid version of the 992nd generation 911. The most powerful Porsche 911 is already available for sale.

In fact, real-world images of the 911 Turbo S generation 992 appeared on the Web, showing us how 640 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque look packed into metal. But the automaker from Stuttgart does not stop there. According to a recent report, Porsche CEO Oliver Blum confirmed that a hybrid version of the 911 992 generation is coming – and it will be “very powerful.”

The fact is that this report contradicts the one published earlier, in which the head of the Porsche 911 series Frank-Steffen Wallizer said that 911 will be the last Porsche to be electrified. His position on this issue seems really strong, as he said that he “will fight to let 911 keep his gas engine,” and that he hopes this will happen after he retires.

However, the Porsche CEO has confirmed that a 911 hybrid is coming soon, which was supposed to appear in 2022. Who to believe is a very difficult question, for which we will closely monitor.

Messages about the 911 hybrid appeared even at the launch of the 992nd generation of the iconic sports car, which first appeared in 2018. It was reported that the new 911 platform was designed with electric motors in mind. But then again, other stories appeared that modern battery technology is not good enough for the hybrid 911. Be that as it may, Porsche is undoubtedly serious about electrification, and it is not surprising that an electrified 911 “lit up” on the horizon. .
