Au­gust: hot­ter than July

Wheels (Australia) - - Features -

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.
