    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.
