> New Porsche 911 Turbo Hybrid expected to be launched early 2022
> First ever hybrid 911
> YesAuto’s spy shots of test mule reveal telltale electrification signs
> Prices expected to be around £180,000
Porsche’s most potent 911 is about to get even more so thanks to some electrification tech. Just like other hybrid models in Porsche’s portfolio, this car will become the most powerful and costly of the range.
Think this test mule just looks like a regular 911 Turbo? Take a closer look to see some high voltage warning stickers that give the game away.
The Porsche 911 Turbo Hybrid will likely be powered by the same twin-turbocharged 3.7-litre flat-six we know from the Turbo S. Expect power to rise from 641bhp to around 700bhp thanks to the addition of an electric motor.
This one is a bit of a mystery because the mule only really tells us that it exists. How far through development Porsche are, or when the car will be revealed, is anyone’s guess. We’d estimate that the car will be on the road next year, maybe following a reveal at the Geneva Motor Show.
A Porsche 911 Turbo S is pricey at £160k, and this hybrid model is expected to become the new ‘top dog’ 911, so it will likely cost more still. Looking at the price jump between a Turbo and Turbo S, a £180,000 sticker for the new Turbo Hybrid is possible.
