It will (probably) arive in 2021, which is actually two years earlier, than expected.
Electric drive is one of the hottest topics at Porsche and also in car community. It became a fuzz after the announcement of first fully electric Porsche, Mission E and got even more attention after announcement, that company will double investments in development of this technology. One of the results of new investments is also recently revealed electric crossover Mission E Cross Turismo.
But if the Mission E got a warm welcome and is expected with great pleasure, there are also debates about hybrid or even electric version of iconic sports car 911. One week its arrival was confirmed, next week denied and so on and so on for months. Some fans were rejoicing, others not so pleased with Porsches decision.
Now, plugin hybrid version of 911 has once more been confirmed and it is arriving even sooner, than initially expected. First PHEV version of 911 is going to be based on upcoming generation with internal code 992 and is due to be presented in 2021, while petrol driven version should make its debut on this year's Paris car show.
Once here, 911 PHEV might just become most powerful of its breed. "The 911 plug-in must be a very strong performing car. It will be the most powerful 911 we've ever had; 700bhp might be possible," recently announced Porsche CEO, Oliver Blume. Those numbers could easily be possible if existing 572 bhp engine from 911 Turbo S is going to be paired with electromotor from Panamera 4 E-Hybrid that produces 136 bhp.
