    They could of course do it with an NA engine, but the fact remains that they don't have any new NA engines. They'll do it with a turbo simply because they already have turbo engines.

    Yes, god forbid that "Porsche" has to develop an engine for the purpose... how in the world could the go about doing that Smiley

    It wouldn't be very hard to make an NA version of the 3.0L Flat-6 to pair with hybrid.  Different pistons and lots less hardware for turbochargers.

    Since we're talking about Porsche here (and their desire to have a million permutations of the 911), I wouldn't be surprised to see both NA and turbocharged versions of the hybrid 911.  A hybrid/turbo version actually has some appeal, using electric to "torque fill" during the periods where turbo motors would otherwise be a little anemic (from low rpm and throttle transitions where lag would be common otherwise).  Sort of like a mini McLaren P1...

    Turbo is a turbo. New Carrera is probably as fast as a 997 Turbo, no?

    Most likely. That is Porsche's way. The next 911 will be as quick as the last GT3.

    SciFrog:

    It actually make sense.

    They could use bigger turbos for higher output, and use the electric motors for the low end when the engine is off boost. 

    Fuel economy cycles are done is tiny throttle input anyway, so the car will be rated nicely in that department. 

    As they can disengage the e-motor at higher rpm and let the gas engine do all the work, so the hybrid system is only working part time. Smaller battery requirement and smaller e-motor requirement.

    E-motors are most efficient from rest to around mid range. After that they loses efficiency. One reason why pure electric doesn't make any sense for highway driving, especially those that travel at a constant speed, there is no chance to regenerate electricity. It's just a straight current draw. Think it through like a German, or any Europeans that has access to the autobahn. At the speed they are driving, a pure electric car's battery would be drained very quickly.

    Even a Tesla can't do North American highway efficiently either. And that car was DESIGNED to excel in North American roads. Remember that hyper mileage record from a Tesla? They had to drive extraordinary slow to keep the electric motor in the most efficient range to stretch out the battery.

    I think you are both right. Hybrid as a fuel saving/ save the planet technology is an interim step. Electricity as a torque fill for performance cars makes sense but fails on its own in terns of the cheap thrill only lasts for a while and range is going to be a major issue for a while yet.

    Nick is right for the high end luxury and sport segment, which the focus of this group here at Renteam. For more normal cars no so much though.


    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019) Thread Closed

    I actually agree for the entry level or low end market where cars are just for city driving that electric car make the most sense.

    Tiny engines even with turbos will have no 'power', it feels slow no matter what. Replace that with a electric motor and that car sudden feels snappy and 'exciting'. 

    Once the charging infrastructure is solved, I can certainly see a majority of cars within city to be cheap electric cars, perhaps a fleet of one time rentals parked on the side of the road for people to hop in, drive to wherever they needed to be, and park the car at the destination, plug it in and waiting for the next hire. Basically replacing taxis. 

    Imagine Manhattan without taxis...........................

    Yep, digital dash. At some point, Porsche was rumored to use the virtual cockpit from the R8/Huracan but apparently they decided against it to add a flair of analogue (rev counter) to the dash. Size of navigation display is rumored to be the same as in Cayenne/Panamera but to be blunt, I think it is a tiny bit too big for the 911.

    Agreed. I don't like how they are copying the Cayenne/Panamera instead of the driver focused 918.

    The shape is (almost) the same, the rear and front will look different. Actually, the rear will be adapted to the new Porsche style language and the front is typical 911 but with slightly smaller sized headlights.

    I wish Porsche would have been a bit more courageous with the 911 design but if they bring the 960, I'm good. Smiley

    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" ... Porsche doesn't need to take risks with the 911 since it's a winning formula that they just need to keep evolving, its the envy of the auto industry, so it's the others ones that need to reinvent things. Personally the 911 delivers what I want so I'm quite happy the 911 is so successful that it doesn't need to change and just keep up with technology with each generation. Those that the 911 does not deliver what they are looking for, hopefully Porsche can satisfy then with another model liked the 960.

    I still love the 911 but it kind of got...a little bit...boring. Or maybe it is just me, I don't know.

    My 991.1 C4 GTS Convertible lease ends next year in March and I have to admit that I feel sad about it. I wish my wife would buy the car, something she really considered in the past but now she has fallen for that damned Smiley C63 S AMG Convertible and she made up her mind, she wants the AMG (probably also because my son often refuses to be taken/picked up to/from school in the Porsche 911 for various reasons). Smiley

    The 960 could really be a game changer for Porsche (and me) but if a 991.2 Turbo S costs over 200k now, how much will be a 960? Smiley Not sure I can really afford one and I also don't even know if I actually want one (if it sounds like crap Smiley). Time will tell...maybe I am going to drive a Mercedes S class in five years...or a Tesla. Smiley Smiley

    I am hopeful that they will have a wide range of 960 models, including one with RWD and NA (lower) power with a price that overlaps some 911 models.

    That's just another way of saying lazy.

    Porsche sells most cars based on cachet, not because their tried and true methods are so amazing. What's better than a 991 GT2 RS? A 991 GT2 RS with an interior from a 918 or a 2020 911 concept.

    If you don't take risks, you have no chance of making anything amazing. The 918 was a risk of doing something very new and it turned out amazing. The 911 is an exercise in profitability and brand value. This means you just get "good" 911s, not amazing 911s.
