• Porsche CEO Oliver Bloom told the media in a roundtable interview on Thursday that if hybridized 911 arrives, it will not be a connected hybrid.
  • Bloom called it a “sports hybrid” and said it draws inspiration from the 919 Hybrid race car that won at Le Mans.
  • Bloom also confirmed that 718 will be electrified while maintaining its average engine proportions.

    Porsche was thinking hybridized 911 for a long time. Back in 2017, when the current 992 generation was still under development, Porsche was going back and forth about whether he wants to sell the 911 hybrid and what form this hybrid will take. Three model years after the release of the 992 hybrid model has not yet appeared, but yesterday in a roundtable interview Porsche CEO Oliver Bloom confirmed its existence and expressed several hints of what we can expect from the 911 hybrid.

    Previous reports suggested that the electrified 911 would come as a plug-in hybrid, but at a roundtable, Bloom explicitly said that the 911 would not be plugged in, and that responsibility remains behind Cayenne SUV and Panamera models. Instead, he described the 911 as a “sports hybrid” and even said it was inspired by the 919 Hybrid, an endurance race car that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Asked if there will be 911 GT models such as GT3will get hybridization in the future, Bloom simply replied that one should expect “surprises” from 911 in the future.

    At the roundtable, Bloom also confirmed less 718 warehouse in 2025 there will be a fully electric model that will retain the classic dimensions of a roadster with a medium engine. The Makan E.V. that will arrive in the US in 2024 has been reaffirmed, and Porsche has also reiterated its ongoing development of synthetic fuels. The automaker said it aims by 2030 for 80 percent of its sales to be fully electric, and synthetic fuels will help close the remaining gap.
