A few days ago, Porsche announced its plans for the future, and one of them is the presentation of the first hybrid version of the popular 911. The Porsche 911 Hybrid is currently in the testing phase at the Nürburgring, and will hit the market in 2023.
After winter testing on the snowy roads of the north, the Porsche 911 Hybrid is currently on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Spy photos show that this prototype has the same design as the previous ones. The front end with large air intakes and vertical slats, additional lights on the sides that should not be part of the final design, narrower arches, a smaller spoiler and centrally placed exhaust pipes are just some of the features of this prototype.
The car still bears a yellow sticker indicating that it is a hybrid. A few days ago, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume said that the car will not be PHEV. This could mean that it will be equipped with a small battery, and that the owners will not have to plug in to charge the battery.
When it comes to the powertrain, there is a lot of speculation. Some say it could use a naturally aspirated 4.0L engine like the one in the Cayman GT4. Some say it could have over 650 hp (478 kW). There is a lot of information, but only one is true. Which one? Only Porsche knows that.
