Porsche 911 is working on a plug-in hybrid version of the next-generation 911, but we are saying that a pure EV has not moved beyond the planning stage. Instead, EV only in the Porsche in the near future is the production version of the concept Mission E company announced it was built.
Porsche 911 recently learned CARandDRIVER will be provided with a plug-in hybrid to 911 on regular turn, starting with the next generation, according to the technical boss of the company for 911 variants, Erhard Mossle.
Inspired by the concept of Mission-E, the plug-in hybrid 911 is part of the new Porsche electrification initiative, not only provides the plug-in hybrid, but a complete EV at some point. Although EV will not happen in a very long time.
The commitment of the company to hold a six-cylinder engine at the heart of 911 has led to the development of an electric drivetrain sell have the ability to meet increasingly tough fuel economy and emissions targets world standards.
“We are working on different solutions,” Erhard Mossle, technical boss 911 Turbo, Carrera 4 and Targa, told us at the Detroit auto show. “We are developing a pure-electric vehicle as Mission E, and of course we are discussing solutions plug-in also for 911.”
Indeed, to do more than just talk, with Mossle confirm that we will almost certainly see with a plug 911, but not until the next generation model to about 2020.
“I think it takes a while to put on the market, with the packaging problem of the car,” he said. “There are many issues to be resolved before [then].”
Mossle admits need to contain the size and weight of the battery is one of the main factors in the next technique 911. “We are fighting hard,” he said, “especially when we are discussing plug- in hybrid form, then pin weight.
