Porsche's Plans For Hybridization Span Further Than Just The 911

Industry News

Is Porsche going hybrid crazy?

Porsche recently revealed it was interested in putting a hybrid version of its 911 sports car into production after 2020. However, it was reported an electric sedan would be introduced into the market first. Just a few days ago, Porsche came out with a 30-second video that stated it would be offering a hybrid variant for every one of the cars in its lineup, including the 911. The 911, however, is the next car in line to get the hybrid treatment.

“Next in line is the sports car, the 911, and after this of course we will have the fully electric drive Mission E,” stated Porsche CFO Lutz Meschke in the video. A hybrid 911 is definitely happening, but the timing of the sports car is still in the air. Looking at the automaker’s previous 911 history, it looks like 2020 will be the year when Porsche comes out with a brand-new platform. And since the automaker plans to put an electric sedan on the market at the same time, Porsche is right on track to unveil a hybrid sports at the same time. One thing's for sure, Porsche is going to be extremely busy in 2020.
