Prototype 911 with German electric warning badge spotted testing
Model wears loads of Turbo S parts, could offer 700+ hp
Look, we all knew that Porsche would make a hybrid version of the 911 sooner or later. The odds of there not being an EV 911 by the end of the decade is growing increasingly slim. We knew it, but that doesn’t make this much easier. A new report and spy shots have captured the Porsche 911 Turbo S Hybrid testing around the place where every new German rocket is captured testing.
The UK’s CarWow has the news along with the spy photos that show a car that’s remarkably lacking in camouflage. Why is it exposed? The report says it’s because the car will look just like the non-hybrid Turbo S.
This car wears the same front splitter as the 911 Turbo S (it even wears that car’s badge), has the same twin rear exhaust, and the same rear diffuser. So what’s the giveaway? The big yellow sticker on the rear glass that every electrified prototype has to wear in Germany. We can’t see the driver-side fender to spot if there is a matching door on that side to plug in and charge the hybrid 911.
The report says the car will come with the batteries from the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid. It also says that the car is likely to match the gas-only Turbo S in performance. That car makes 640 hp, and Porsche E-Hybrid models often make much more power than their non-hybrid counterparts, so power well in excess of 700 hp is possible.
Expect to see the car in 2024, and expect it to be pricey. North of £180k, says the report, which would be £20k more than a Turbo S. That would likely put it at or above $250,000 in Canada.
