Porsche CEO, Oliver Blume, has confirmed that the Porsche 911 will never become a fully electric car. The reason being that the 911 platform has been optimised for the Internal Combustion Engine, not an electric system. However, a hybrid Porsche 911, might just become a reality.
In a phone interview with European media, CEO Oliver Blume said "In the future for the 911, there are good ideas for a special kind of hybrid, a very performance-oriented hybrid, where we use, for example, a 400-volt system for our electric engine". "That's more or less our idea of how to continue with the 911."
Porsche 911 enthusiasts may not be too happy to hear about a 911 adopting a hybrid system. If a 911 hybrid were to become a reality, we sure hope Porsche sticks to their word of making it performance-oriented.
