Will we see a Porsche 911 hybrid in this 992 generation?
The Porsche 911 in generation 992 is already a reality. It was presented just a few days ago, as here we tell you, in the versions 911 Carrera S and Carrera 4S . Little by little new versions will be arriving , as the most accessible Race (to dry), the GTS, GT3, etc., but probably the most curious will take a little longer to arrive.
I mean with "the most curious version" to the hybrid variant that we are waiting for, as it is practically confirmed that within two or three years we will see a hybrid Porsche 911 . It will be the first "nineonce" hybrid and, seeing the performance results of the 918 Spyder or the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, we have no reason to burst into tears.
It's true, even if the 911 remains very true to its original aesthetics, technologically has evolved very much . There will be people who seem good and others who do not like at all this type of more ecological versions (and less pure) of the mythical German sports. However, in my opinion, the best thing of all is the possibility to choose . Whoever wants the hybrid, has it; who prefers a more traditional mechanics, too.
As published Autocar , have chatted with August Achleitner , responsible for sports models of the German brand. He has commented that the Porsche 911 992 has been designed to be hybridized , also confirming that these hybrid versions are in development. It seems that there will be a "soft hybrid" and also a plug-in variant, that is, plug-in.
"We have taken the experience we got with the hybrid versions of the Cayenne and the Panamera, as well as the 918 Spyder, and we apply it to the new 911, "said Achleitner. " In the future, this will allow us to offer it with purely electric capability. "
The electric motor will be located in the rear, next to the gearbox, while the battery pack will be placed on the front. Obviously, this means an increase in weight, but despite this disadvantage there are also some advantages, such as achieving a better weight distribution between axles and a lower center of gravity .
Little more we can confirm today about the hybridization of the Porsche 911 992. It does not seem that a 100% electric version will be marketed in this generation , but these hybrid systems should start to mentalize that probably in the next generation, in the second half of the next decade, it does exist.
