    Plans for 911 Hybrid Is Put On Hold

      Don't expect Porsche to do a 911 Hybrid anytime soon

    There has been talk about Porsche doing 911 Hybrid for the past year, including the possibility of a plug-in variant. But it seems now those plans have been put on hold. 

    “A 911 hybrid? It’s possible, yes. It’s possible to have 918-derived technology in a 911. It’s possible with today’s technology in a 911. However, there is no decision to do this on short notice, but we have this constantly on our radar,” said Porsche development chief, Michael Steiner to Motoring.com.au.

    Currently, Porsche is focusing all of their efforts on the upcoming Mission E and its electric powertrain. The powertrain and platform is expected to be used on future models.

    “We decided we would do the Mission E as our priority one. It’s in serial development. If you look at the alternatives, what would be more important to us?” said Steiner.

    This is surprising. This car is a no-brainer. They already have the technology in place. And it ties into their race car a few years back nicely.

    Totally makes sense to put this on hold. Finish the more advanced Mission E, use the ubber Wealthy .01% to pay for the R&D, then push out this into the rest of the company product portfolio. 

    That is how you do it right!

    My gut also tells me this is Porsche responding to the potential only EV's by 2030. Might as well focus on using the ultra wealthy to pay for your research on flipping the whole product line to a new powertrain.

    Of course the Mission E should take priority, but they should be developing this car alongside it. Or at least with it in mind. It'll help recoup costs by having components shared among platforms and applications.
