Is Porsche Seriously Going To Do This To The 911?

Rumor / Comments

Our educated guess: yes.

We've all heard the rumors before but so far a Porsche 911 hybrid hasn't happened. Is it technically possible? Absolutely. Is it the right move in regards to the countless 911 purists out there? Debatable. Automotive News is reporting that Porsche CEO, Matthias Mueller, confirmed the automaker will decide sometime later this year whether or not to build a plug-in hybrid version of the legendary sports car. "Why not?" Mueller stated.

"That is a technique which we at Porsche are very familiar with, so we can suppose that we could have plug-ins all over the model range, not only to save fuel but also to boost the performance of these cars." The Cayenne plug-in, for example, accounts for 10-12 percent of the model's total US sales, so it's a fact that Porsche plug-ins are in demand. Another plug-in example is the 918 Spyder halo car, which has received nothing but praise. But would a 911 plug-in hybrid have the same universal effect? Let us know what you think in the comments.
