Porsche pulls plug on hy­brid 911

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

Weight is­sues and a per­ceived lack of de­mand are be­hind Porsche’s de­ci­sion not to pro­ceed with the de­vel­op­ment of a hy­brid 911. Porsche 911 pro­ject di­rec­tor Au­gust Ach­leit­ner told Wheels his pref­er­ence is for cars to ei­ther have a com­bus­tion en­gine, or be fully elec­tric like the com­pany’s Mis­sion E con­cept (pic­tured). “Of course we could in­stall a hy­brid sys­tem in a sports car, 911 for ex­am­ple, but it’s not an easy job. We look at all th­ese de­vel­op­ments all over the world and maybe we come to an­other de­ci­sion next year, or in the next two years. Right now, we do not plan it.”
