KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • When will Porsche reveal the 911's hybrid version?

    The vehicle reveal will be on May 28.
  • How can the Porsche 911 hybrid go?

    The sports car was able to complete a lap at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7:16.934 minutes – 8.7 seconds faster than its predecessor.
  • To be launched on May 28, the Stuttgart-headquartered marque said that the vehicle with a performance-focused hybrid drive is ready for series production. Its announcement was made after the company completed an extensive development and testing program for the new 911.

    “For the first time in our icon’s 61-year history, we are installing a hybrid drive system in a roadgoing 911. This innovative performance hybrid makes the 911 even more dynamic,” Vice President Model Line 911 and 718 Frank Moser said.

    “We left nothing to chance during development and tested the new 911 under all sorts of conditions all over the world. From the freezing cold to scorching heat, as was the case during the final stages of testing in Dubai. Whether at a high drivetrain load in the demanding conditions of mountain passes or in the stop-and-go traffic of an urban environment, the new 911 has mastered even the most difficult challenges with aplomb. All in all, our engineers and test drivers clocked up more than five million kilometers of development driving."

    Tested and tuned at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, the hybrid-mill powered Porsche 911 was able to complete a lap of the circuit in 7:16.934 minutes – 8.7 seconds faster than its predecessor. Driven by Porsche brand ambassador Jörg Bergmeister, the tested model was fitted with standard road tires and an aero kit with a fixed rear wing that has been available as an option for several model generations.

    “The new 911 has become considerably faster on the track,” the driver shared.

    “We have more grip, significantly more power, and the spontaneous response of the performance hybrid is a great advantage.”

    Porsche in PH

    Early this month, PGA Cars introduced the Porsche 911 Dakar. The model pays homage to the marque’s victory in the Paris-Dakar rally in 1984.

    With regards to sustainability premium mobility, the company also brought to the country the Cayenne E-Hybrid in December last year, which furthered the brand’s electrification thrust in the country (alongside the all-electric Taycan). The aforementioned sport utility vehicle is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbo engine paired with an electric motor and integrated into an eight-speed automatic transmission.
