We’ve known for a while that Porsche is working on a hybrid version of the 992-generation 911 and up until now Porsche hasn’t really given us that many details about the electrified 911, but that just changed. Porsche CEO Oliver Blume recently hinted what we can expect from the upcoming 911 hybrid.
“We have said the next 911 will add a hybrid version. That will be the highest-performance 911 of all,” Blume recently told Top Gear. “So it won’t have the extra weight of batteries, it will be a non-plug-in hybrid. We have the experience to do that—look at the racing 919.”
The 911 hybrid will feature a disc-shaped electric motor housed in between the its flat-six engine and the eight-speed PDK transmission. We’ll have to wait and see how much power it will pack, but since it will be the most powerful 911, it will pack more power than new 911 Turbo, which Car and Driver claims will have 641-hp. All signs point to the 911 hybrid having around 700 horsepower.
