2019 Porsche 911 (992)

For the longest time Porsche has been avoiding the “hybrid” debate when it comes to its most iconic of icons, the 911. But as early as in 2016 we reported about the possibility of a hybrid 911 and in December last year we heard a rumour it would definitely be part of the next-generation model. now it seems, that rumour has been confirmed by the guys at Autocar.


According to their report, the next-generation 911 will feature hybrid technology for the first time. As a matter of fact, the hybrid version of that range will be the most powerful, with about 520kW to play with! It would combine a 3.0-litre flat-six turbocharged petrol engine with what will possibly be a plug-in electric motor. Of course Porsche is not new to hybrids; currently it sells Cayenne and Panamera hybrids in several markets globally. And of course its halo car is the 918 Spyder, a hybrid itself.


Hybrid systems have been kept away from sports cars for the simple reason that they add extra weight and have not produced the necessary counter-offer in performance. Hybrid hyper cars have worked because of their ridiculous power outputs. The new-generation Porsche 911 will be unveiled this year at one of the main international Motor Shows.
