Porsche 911 Going Hybrid in 2024 Says New Report

911s to get faster, more electric

  • 992.2 getting new engines, more electrification

  • Expect more power, lower emissions


Porsche is getting ready to update the current 911. The Porsche 911 992.2 version is expected to arrive in the first half of 2024, with a mild hybrid system and a new engine for some models.

The rumour mill for the 2025 Porsche 911 992.2 is being stoked by Car and Driver, which is reporting on the hybrid system and changes.

Initial changes will include a slight styling update, a new cabin, and a 48V system added to the lineup to help curb emissions. But arriving early into 2025, C/D reports, there will be a more serious T-HEV hybrid system.

That system will reportedly add 80-90 hp to the 3.0L twin-turbo flat-six found in those cars. The report says that the system will only weigh around 55 lbs and that it will have 400-volt F1 Kers-inspired tech developed with help from Rimac.

An extra 90 hp on the 3.0L’s 395 hp would put the car close to 500 hp. An even more powerful one is said to be in the works.

Non-hybrid cars also get new engines. C/D says the GTS will get a naturally aspirated 3.6L flat-six, and that the Turbo and Turbo S get a new twin-turbo 3.6L. It says the NA 3.6 will replace the 3.0L turbo engines eventually, as well as the GT3’s 4.0L down the road.
