Porsche’s Sporty 911 Hybrid New Update!
Porsche’s Sporty 911 Hybrid Won’t Be a Plug-In Vehicle.
For a long time, Porsche has been considering a hybridized 911. When the current 992 generation was still under development in 2017, Porsche was debating whether or not to sell a 911 hybrid and, if so, what form that hybrid would take.
Here are the major highlights:
- In a Thursday roundtable interview with the media, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume stated that the hybridized 911 would not be a plug-in hybrid.
- Blume described it as a “sporty hybrid” inspired by the Le Mans-winning Porsche 919 Hybrid race car.
- According to Blume, the 718 will be electrified while preserving its mid-engine proportions.
Unfortunately, the hybrid model has yet to debut three model years into the 992’s production run.
Still, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume confirmed its existence and gave some ideas about what we may anticipate from a 911 hybrid in a roundtable discussion yesterday.
Earlier sources claimed that the electric 911 would be a plug-in hybrid. Still, Blume stated flatly at the roundtable that the 911 will not be plug-in, leaving that responsibility to the Cayenne SUV and Panamera models.
Instead, he referred to the 911 as a “sporty hybrid,” even claiming that it was inspired by the Porsche 919 Hybrid, which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
When asked if future 911 GT variants, such as the GT3, might be hybridized, Blume merely replied that we should expect “surprises” from the 911 in the future.
Blume also confirmed that the trimmer 718 series will have an all-electric vehicle in 2025, with the iconic mid-engined roadster characteristics.
Furthermore, Porsche proved the arrival of the Macan EV in the United States in 2024 and its continuous development of synthetic fuels.
By 2030, the carmaker wants to sell entirely electric vehicles for 80% of total sales, with synthetic fuel filling in the gaps.
