Report: Porsche to go the way of the hybrid for the next gen 911

Porsche’s making some big changes as the automaker continues its own trend of trying to reduce it’s CAFE figure while using the resourceful parts bins of Volkswagen AG.

And one of those big changes includes the introduction of a new hybridized version of the 911.

According to a new report fromĀ Motoring.com in Australia, Porsche should be ready with the new hybrid 911 by 2018, with the new generation of 911, which is codenamed the 992.

Speaking with Porsche’s head of motorsports, Dr. Frank-Stefan Walliser, the Carrera 4 will be the first to gain the hybrid powertrain with an electrically-driven front axle, to simulate the all-wheel drive system already standard on the Carrera 4.

Powering the hybrid system isn’t a downsized turbocharged flat-engine, but rather Porsche’s traditional naturally-aspirated motor because Walliser explains that it’s lighter, less complex, and assisted by electric motors to aid with the delivery of low-end torque.

The current Porsche 911 is destined to be updated for its mid-cycle refresh in September of this year.
