Porsche 992 Hybrid Preview: Specs & Details
The Porsche 992, a new Porsche 911 generation, is arriving later this year, and plans for a hybrid model are already in the works. Learn more about the future Porsche 992 Hybrid and its anticipated specs and details below!
Porsche 992 Hybrid Engines: What We Know
A mild hybrid, a plug-in hybrid, and an electric-only model could be on the market as soon as 2022. The way the 992 is configured shows that it’ll be compatible with an electric engine. For one, the eight-speed PDK transmission is going to be shorter by 100 millimeters. This allows space behind the gearbox for a disc-shaped electric motor. What’s more, the transmission will be able to handle over 590 lb-ft of torque.
The Inspiration: Panamera S E-Hybrid
The engineer in charge of the Porsche 911 lineup, August Achleitner, advised people to look to the Panamera S E-Hybrid as a reference, as the engine output for the 992 has not been released.
The Panamera S E-Hybrid produces 676 hp and 626 lb-ft of torque. This is thanks to two engines working together: the 126-hp electric motor and the 550-hp twin-turbo V8 engine. While the actual 992 Hybrid power output could be different, we can estimate that the 911 992 could produce up 577 hp and 686 lb-ft by combining the electric motor from the Panamera S and the 444-hp engine from the Carrera 4S.
Anticipated Porsche 992 Hybrid Features
Though the Porsche 992 Hybrid specs and engine output are still merely approximations, the model’s standard and optional features are a little more tangible. Many 2019 911 model features will likely cross over to the hybrid model. These features include available advanced driver assistance systems and a PCM display that has smartphone integration, navigation, audio streaming, and more.
