How fast the EV market will grow is anybody’s guess, but there’s no question that the vehicles themselves are getting faster all the time. Porsche is accelerating its Mission E project, which aims to launch a new EV by the end of the decade.
Now we hear that Porsche’s iconic 911 may eventually acquire a plug.
As Porsche unveiled the fastest-ever 911 Turbo at the Detroit Motor Show, 911 engineering boss Dr. Erhard Mossle told Auto Express that the next-generation car, to be launched within the next four years, may be available with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. “We are discussing plug-in solutions for the 911, but there are a lot of things to solve with packaging in the car and other things. It will maybe be in the next generation…we’re also working on an all-electric car.”
Mossle quickly reassured Porsche fans that the plug-in 911 would still be a performance vehicle, probably with a six-cylinder engine. “As far as I can see we will stick with six-cylinder engines…when we see the 911 we see the plug-in hybrid as a performance car – it will always be for performance.”
