In an interview with Automotive News, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume said the development of a Plug-in Hybrid Porsche 911 was about to begin shortly with only a few details left to finalize.
The idea of an electrified 911 has been circulating for years now, but it was mostly rumors although Porsche has always said it understood the importance and need for such a version. Now it seems that the model will be unveiled a few years after the next generation of 911 is unveiled in 2019.
Nothing has been officially announced when it comes to the specifications of this plug-in hybrid engine, but according to early information Porsche would have in mind a range of about 70 kilometers. At present, Porsche offers a plug-in hybrid engine in the Porsche Panamera and Porsche Cayenne lineups.
