Mark your calendars, as the first road-going Porsche 911 hybrid is set to make its global debut on May 28. The German carmaker has concluded the development of its first hybrid 911 after nearly 'five million kilometres' of extensive testing. The partially electrified sports car has been in prototype form for nearly two years. It is now ready to go hybrid for the first time in its six-decade-long lifespan to further improve driving performance. Porsche hasn't divulged the specs of the new 911 Hybrid but claims it has been built with a focus on performance.

Frank Moser, Vice President of Model Line 911 and 718, commented 'For the first time in our icon’s 61-year history, we are installing a hybrid drive system in a roadgoing 911. This innovative performance hybrid makes the 911 even more dynamic.'

He further added 'We left nothing to chance during development and tested the new 911 under all sorts of conditions all over the world. From the freezing cold to scorching heat, as was the case during the final stages of testing in Dubai. Whether at a high drivetrain load in the demanding conditions of mountain passes or in the stop-and-go traffic of an urban environment, the new 911 has mastered even the most difficult challenges with aplomb. All in all, our engineers and test drivers clocked up more than five million kilometres of development driving.'

During the testing, Porsche confirmed that the model achieved a lap time of 7 minutes 16.934 seconds at the Nurburgring, which was 8.7 seconds faster 'than the corresponding version of the predecessor model'. The test vehicle had the aero package with a fixed rear wing and standard road tyres.

The German manufacturer is expected to implement electric power in the 911's powertrain with a unique approach. However, it has been verified that the upcoming model won't be a plug-in hybrid.

The car's hybrid system will likely include the 911's turbocharged six-cylinder engine with an electric motor located in the front axle to power all four wheels. In addition, the automaker may incorporate a 48-volt starter motor into the dual-clutch automatic transmission to provide an electric push and run auxiliary parts.
