The Hybrid Porsche 911 Will Be Revealed May 28th

Porsche says it has finished development of the first-ever hybrid 911, and it has announced the new model will debut on May 28th.


The automaker says that testing consisted of “all sorts of conditions all over the the world, from freezing cold to scorching heat…” All told, Porsche drove over three million miles across the new 911’s development.


This included time spent at the Nurburgring Nordschleife. Early lap times show a huge improvement over the “corresponding version of the predecessor model,” whatever that means. Porsche is understandably being coy about what model is a rough equivalent to the new hybrid car, but a 991.2 911 GT3 did lap the ‘Ring in 7:12.7 EM not far off the hybrid car’s 7:16.9. Little else was shared, but Porsche did give us loads of photos, which you can enjoy in the gallery below.
