August: hotter than July
For nearly 20 years, August Achleitner has been the father of the 911. So will he preside over an electric version? “I wouldn’t categorically rule it out,” he concedes. As for a hybrid, “It could be an option somewhere down the line.” Achleitner describes his ongoing change of heart: “I drove the prototype of our coming electric sports car, the Mission E, and it was a very compelling experience.” Consider a hybrid a case of when, not if.
