    Upcoming 911 Plug-In Hybrid Could Be the Most Powerful 911 Yet

      700 horsepower may be possible

    The next-generation Porsche 911 will offer a plug-in hybrid variant and comments made the CEO hint it could be the most powerful 911 ever.

    “The 911 plug-in must be a very strong performing car. It will be the most powerful 911 we’ve ever had; 700bhp might be possible," Porsche CEO Oliver Blume told Autocar.

    It should be noted that Porsche already has a 911 that produces 700 horsepower, the GT2 RS. To pull this off, the plug-in hybrid needs a powerful electric motor. Luckily, they have one in the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid which produces 134 horsepower. The gas engine would likely be a turbocharged flat-six. Blume says there would be a button that provides "the electric punch".

    The 911 plug-in would draw on knowledge from the 918 Spyder and Panamera hybrids, but also come with its own set of technologies.

    The plug-in variant is expected to launch “a couple years” after the new 911. Considering the next-generation 992 will be debuting at the Paris Motor Show later this year, expect to see it either 2020 or 2021.

    Exciting but they must do better than 700BHP. Tesla already has this staked in the ground with their AWD S model. 

    2018 Tesla S P100D 760 HP / 920 Lb-Ft Torque

    2018 Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid TTV8 / Electric assist = 680 HP / 626 Lb-Ft Torque

    Less just say, that Tesla is the Yard Stick and Porsche has some catching up to do.

    A 700hp Hybrid 911 will gap a Tesla, lol.

      Last month, Porsche unveiled the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S, the two top trims of the Taycan, priced starting around $155,000.  Now, Porsche is debuting the Taycan 4S, a new lower price model. 
      The Taycan 4S comes with a single-layer performance battery with 79.2 kWh as standard, the two-layer performance battery plus from the Taycan Turbo is available as an option.  Regardless of which battery is chosen, the Taycan can accelerate to 60 in as little as 3.8 seconds.  As of yet, range estimates for the U.S. have not been published, but assume somewhere north of 250 miles on the performance plus battery.
      All-wheel drive is standard on the 4S, with a dual motor setup and a 2-speed transmission on the rear motor, the overall motor package is smaller and lighter than in the Turbo and Turbo S.
      The Taycan can charge at up to 800 volts at a high-speed DC charging station. That can bring the charge from 5% to 80% in as little as 22.5 minutes. Porsche has partnered with Amazon to have 240 volt home chargers installed at customer's homes for an additional charge. 
      The Taycan 4S will start at $103,800 for the base model and $110,380 for the model with the performance plus battery.
      Ordering of the Taycan 4S is available immediately.

    • Yeah, I think turbos in trucks will always do pretty well.. 🙂  It’s these smaller cars/CUVs that people barely take care of that worry me.  I figure if I care for the turbo’d cars in have picked up in the last 2 years ( Nox 1.5, Trax 1.4) they should go for a while. Heck, I still do the “wait to cool the turbo” even though they are built to handle better abuse now. But when I helped drop my dad’s Equinox off for an oil change (also a 19) they had a Trax in there waiting almost 16k for a change, and a Malibu almost 15k to get one. While part hunting for the Cobalt in the boneyards I’ve already seen some 13-15 Fusions and 11-14 Cruzes with blown engines/turbos......
    • Better late than never.  Here are some sightings from 4 days in Eastern Sicily in early February ... when things were still "normal" there. By order of comic relief: 1.  a Subaru doubling as a police car (they have different types of law enforcement and carabinieri is one of the different departments).  A Subaru?!? 2.  They have gone nuts with these weird pastel enamel colors on small cars over there, like this pale blue-green on Fiats, Renaults, Citroens, etc.  This one is in front of a funeral home.  You can also see that people have been spending more money on their cars over there. 3.  This made for the best laugh.  It must have belonged to the guy who worked inside the gas station and ran the credit card.  I can't believe they sell these in Sicily.  I don't see a big V8 under the hood and I wouldn't assume an automatic transmission is a given. It's fun to spot cars that are out of the ordinary from what you'd expect in a far-away place.
    • The list has changed over the years, that is for sure. I grew up around dogs as both my mom and aunt raised show dogs. Lots of cool dogs out there... 🙂  Our dogs (Lhasa Apso) is at 78
