Slow and silent? Porsche set to hybridize every one of its models, including the 911

porsche-tech-5

Within the next few years, Porsche will include hybrid drivetrain technology in all its models, including the 911. Don’t think for a red-hot second that this spells some kind of neutering of Porsche’s fire-breathing sporting machines. Hybrids don’t have to be wimpy, just look at the Porsche 918 Spyder supercar for a perfect example. Porsche’s widespread hybridization represents a big push by the German automaker to reduce emissions and fuel consumption. Starting somewhere around 2016, the newfangled Porsche hybrid powertrain system will be included in the next-generation Panamera S E-Hybrid, which will replace the current Panamera Hybrid.The E-Hybrid will have an all-electric range of 11- to 23-miles and an EV top speed of 86mph running on its 94 horsepower electric motor. When E-Hybrid kicks on its supercharged 3.0-liter V6, it should be good for 168mph.According to Autocar, Porsche sought out weight saving at ever level of the new E-Hybrid, including the wiring. In place of the standard copper wire loom, Porsche has designed an aluminum loom instead.
