The next-generation Porsche 911 has just been spied in the midst of testing for the very first time. While the German automaker only recently introduced the mid-life facelift for the 991-generation model, it clearly isn’t wasting any time in developing the all-new car.
The next-generation Porsche 911 will prove particularly important for the company as from the outset, it will be designed to accommodate a hybrid powertrain, a first for a road-going Porsche sports car.
Details about the impending 911 hybrid remain scarce but there’s a chance it could borrow the supercharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder of the Cayenne and Panamera hybrids and joined with an electric motor. There’s also a chance Porsche will fit an electric motor alongside its latest turbo’d four-cylinder set to debut in the new Cayman/Boxster.
Elsewhere in the next-gen 911 range, we expect the same array of variants that currently exist. That means everything from the standard Carrera through to the range-topping 911 GT3 RS. At this stage, it remains unclear if Porsche will release a new GT2 based around the next-gen 911. By: GtSpirit
