Testing of the Porsche 911 hybrid has begun

It is no longer a question of whether the most famous sports car of all time will also get a hybrid drive option.

Noting that Porsche with the electrically powered Taycan model, whose sales so far have already surpassed the combined sales of the 718 and 992 Series models, has proven that electric sports cars are well received, the famous German car company is working hard on partial electrification of its most famous model. hides behind the number 911.

Proof of this is the test prototype seen on the German Nürburgring Nordschleife, and the confirmation that it is a car whose engine is assisted by electricity is a yellow sticker on the tinted rear window of the Porsche 911 Turbo, which is mandatory at the Nürburgring when testing hybrid prototypes.

That electrification will not bypass even the most famous sports car of all time, Porsche revealed during the presentation of the current generation model 911 (992) when they confirmed that the platform is adapted to accommodate a hybrid system with batteries and electric motor that will be integrated with 8-speed automatic transmission.

Porsche is silent on the technical details for now, but promises that the combined power of the hybrid “elf” that should be presented in 2023 will be above the potential of the 6-cylinder boxer engine offered by the 911 Turbo S version.
