    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    The article says the following:

    "Wie geht es beim 911 weiter? Wird es da eine Elektroversion geben?

    Elektrisch sehe ich den Elfer nicht, weil er dafür einfach nicht konzipiert ist. Der 911 ist die Ikone der Marke Porsche und eine feste Größe in der Produktpalette. Er wird noch lange mit einem Verbrennungsmotor unterwegs sein. Wir haben seine Plattform aber so konzipiert, dass wir einen Hybrid draufsetzen können. Wir warten noch eine Evolutionsstufe bei den Batterien ab, dann wird ein 911 Hybrid eine absolute Speerspitze sein. Das System kann man so sportlich ausprägen, wie wir es beim 919 Hybrid gemacht haben.

    Wann wird das sein?

    Bis dahin sind es schon noch drei bis vier Jahre hin. Ich möchte den 911 zudem als Verbrenner so lange durchfahren, wie es möglich ist.

    Dann gilt diese Aussage für diese und für die nächste Generation des 911?

    Ja."

    Freely trnaslated:

    So, the question is; what will the future of the 911 look like, wll there be an electronic version?
    The reply is; "I don't see the 911 as an EV, because the platform is not suitable for that. However, the platform IS suitable for a hybrid. We're awaiting a step in batery performance, and then a 911 hybrid will be an ultimate model. We can make it as sporty as the 919.

    When will that be the case?

    We expect it ti take another 3-4 years.

    So, your statement is for the next generation of 911?

    Yes.

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    The hybrid was planned for the 992.2 Turbo S but of course plans can change. I still think we are going to see some sort of hybrid tech in the 992.2 Turbo S.

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Walliser had mentioned while the 991 platform isn't prepared for hybrid, the 992 is. So if they want to they can.

    Perhaps it will be a mild hybrid, and not a plug in. 

    And if it's for performance usage, then it won't need a big battery, something the size of the 918 one or even smaller would be enough. package that in the transmission tunnel and run a electric motor up front.

    The term "hybrid" is no longer very useful if such a machine would still be called a hybrid.  Since the word "Turbo" has now also been made useless by using it in the Taycan, I propose:  " Electro-boost" for such performance-aimed use of battery and motor.

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    I understood there will not be a 992.2. The 992 is suppost to be an intermedian model for only 4-6 years. Then they will lauch a really "new" model with hybid and so. Woopsy en RC you are better informed could this be corrrect?


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    i think he is hinting that the 911 will follow the Panamera and that the Turbo S will indeed be a hybrid after the facelift.

    I am excited about the offering but to be honest the manual gearshift in that “technoid” interior looks a bit anachronistic to me...

    Embarrassing for whom...? I am certain that this won’t be the last model from Volkswagen Group with that shifter.

    I would say for Porsche when a hatchback from parent group shares design elements with their >150k sportscar.

    Another reason to get a manual in the 992; however, someone here did recently write that the new 992 does drive like a Golf.  


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Doesn't the manual shifter also look kind of VW-ish?

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Economies of scale:

    The manual 992 will be so rare that it wouldn't pay Porsche to design and produce a new gear lever. indecision

    Similarly the DSG VWs are limited compared to the manuals that VW decided to the borrow the Braun (not Brawn as mentioned by someone above) auto lever. This name is from Max Braun, no relation to Ross Brawn.
