Porsche 911 Hybrid to be revealed this summer

  • The reveal should take place this summer.

  • Other non-electrified trims will also be showcased.


 

Electrification is in the spotlight for the Stuttgart-based brand in 2024. After the recent unveiling of the new Panamera, which offers several plug-in hybrid variants, the future all-electric Macan and even the revised Taycan, Porsche is now preparing to launch the 911 hybrid.

This new hybrid version of the brand’s best-known sports car will appear this summer, before going on sale before the end of the year. This very first electrified 911 in the model’s history should, in theory, be offered until the complete renewal of this generation of the model, which took off in 2020, remember.

This summer addition will coincide with the mid-cycle redesign of the 911, the rear-engine sports car that will receive its share of modifications, starting with a cabin more in line with the brand’s most recent models. Expect more screens amongst the modifications inside. Evolving aesthetic changes are also in store for the exterior, an approach that the brand’s top management has mastered to perfection.

Where the history of the 911 takes an unusual turn is in the hybrid powertrain, for the first time in its more than 60-year history. Indeed, purists have nothing to fear, as the twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder 3.0-liter flat engine is here to stay, just behind the rear axle. However, this 911 hybrid will be aided by a second motor, this one electric and developing an estimated 80-90 hp, housed on the front axle.

The gasoline engine will power the rear wheels, while the electric motor will drive the front wheels. A dual-clutch gearbox is also on the program, while a 48V starter-alternator will also be integrated to facilitate standing starts.

What’s more, a new 400 V system will recover energy and store it in reserve, giving the car greater autonomy. However, don’t expect to cover very long distances in electric mode, as the aim is not to add too much weight to the car. The battery will then be very small.

We’ll have to wait a little longer for the first official details of this new 911 hybrid, but what is clear is that we can expect to see a whole range of 911 hybrids over the next few years, rather like the Cayenne and Panamera.
