It seems the electrified Porsche 911 is closer than we think as a prototype has been spotted testing.
It may look like a normal Porsche 911 (992) Turbo S but if you take a closer look, there is a yellow sticker on the back window which is an industry requirement for electrified test cars in some parts.
It has been debated as to which 911 variant will be given a hybrid powertrain first and if these shots are accurate, then it could well be a potent 911 Turbo variant.
Could that mean a Turbo S E-Hybrid will be available in the near future? Only time will tell.
Sources of Motor Authority suggests that the 911 hybrid will use a 400-volt electrical system instead of an 800-volt system like the Taycan. The higher voltage system is better suited to rapid charging, which isn’t necessary for a hybrid that will have only a small battery.
At this stage, we are expecting the 911 hybrid to be introduced in 2023 as a 2024 model, with its arrival expected to coincide with the 992-gen 911’s mid-cycle update.
