New Porsche 911 hybrid confirmed

The updated Porsche 911 has been spotted testing, and there’s going to be a high-performance hybrid version

The new Porsche 911 Turbo S has been spotted out and about with next to no camouflage, giving you the best look yet at what this updated sports car will look like.

A new high-performance hybrid version of the 911 is also on the way, and this alternative to the McLaren Artura and Ferrari 296 GTB could have up to 700hp when it hits the streets.

The new Porsche 911 hybrid was confirmed by Porsche’s Chief Executive Officer – Oliver Blume – during the firm’s annual press conference. However, prototypes of a new electrified 911 sportscar have already been spotted undergoing testing

This prototype (identifiable as a hybrid by the yellow sticker on the rear windscreen) appears to be based on the latest Turbo S model. This suggests you’re looking at a performance hybrid in the same vein as the Cayenne and Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid models.

It’s thought the Porsche 911 Turbo S Hybrid will use the same 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six as the standard car but could also feature a 136hp electric motor (just like other hybrid Porsches) to produce a total of between 700hp and 800hp.
Although the new hybrid will likely be heavier than the normal 911 Turbo S, it should match, and possibly beat, that car’s impressive 0-60mph time of 2.7 seconds
New Porsche 911 design
This prototype of the new Porsche 911 Turbo S is wearing a very thin disguise, with only a couple of plastic covers on the lower bumpers. It appears this is only going to be a minor facelift, with only some subtle tweaks to this iconic shape.
The front end is sporting some updated headlights with a new LED signature. The lower bumpers also have some much larger, and more square-looking air intakes. There does appear to be some plastic covers on the edges of the bumper, possibly covering some more changes.

The side profile is still instantly recognisable as a 911. This Turbo S keeps the side air intake of the current car, as well as the fixed rear spoiler.

At the back you’ll find the most camouflage. The lower bumper is almost completely covered for now, so expect to see a more aggressive rear diffuser. The lights have also been tweaked, as have the square exhaust tips.

The new Porsche 911 Cabriolet has also been spotted testing. It’ll look very similar to the coupe, with the same twin-exit exhausts and larger air intakes. It will retain the fabric roof from the current car as well. You’ll be able to get the Cabriolet in both Turbo and Turbo S models, as potentially as a future hybrid version.
New Porsche 911 interior and infotainment
No pictures have been revealed yet of the updated Porsche 911’s interior, but don’t expect any major changes.
t’s likely that there will be some new trim options and updated infotainment on offer. Plus there may be some new displays in the gauge cluster hybrid 911s.
New Porsche 911 engines

The updated Porsche 911 is expected to use the same suite of engines as today’s car. Carrera models are likely to be the first to be introduced, followed by Turbo models and eventually an updated GT3.
The upcoming 911 Carrera models will likely retain the current car’s 3.0-litre turbocharged flat-six engine, though power may be nudged up from its current 385hp to possibly more than 400hp.

The 911 GT3 could see a tweaked version of its 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six for more power too, with an increase also possible for the 3.8-litre twin-turbo unit found in the 911 Turbo and Turbo S models. A new hybrid version of the Turbo S range topper could be on the way, too.

New Porsche 911 price and release date
The new Porsche 911 is likely to go on sale in 2023, with the new Porsche 911 Turbo S Hybrid following in 2024.

No pricing information has been revealed yet, but it’s likely to cost more than the current car. Expect pricing to kick off from around £90,000 for entry-level cars and rise north of £180,000 for the Turbo S hybrid.
