Report: Each Porsche model will have a hybrid version

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 5, 2010

It’s not a secret anymore that Porsche is trying to make its cars greener but also to introduce hybrid versions of its current models. What we didn’t know until today is that the German manufacturer will introduce a hybrid version for all of its models found in its lineup. As you may know already, the 2011 Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid was introduced earlier this year at the 2010 New York Auto Show.

The Cayenne was the first hybrid Porsche introduced on the market, and according to our sources, the second hybrid model introduced on the market will be the Panamera S Hybrid.

The hybrid version of the Porsche Panamera is expected to use the same technology as the Cayenne S Hybrid, which means it will be powered by a 3.0-liter V6 combustion engine delivering 333 hp but also by an electric motor capable to deliver 47 hp.

This means that the car will deliver a total output of 380 hp and 427 pound-feet of torque, which is available from a low 1,000 rpm. The Cayenne S Hybrid can travel for short distances on electric power alone and can reach a top speed of almost 40 mph.

The Panamera S Hybrid is expected to deliver the same numbers. Furthermore, Porsche will also introduce at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show the 918 Spyder, a hybrid supercar known as the successor of the Carrera GT.

This car will be powered by a 500 hp V8 engine delivering 500 hp but also by four electric motors delivering 218 hp, which means that the total output of the car will be over 700 hp. The 918 Spyder will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds while the top speed will be in excess of 320 km/h (200 mph).

The next hybrid additions to the Porsche lineup will be a 911 Hybrid but also a Boxster/Cayman Hybrid. For the moment there are no details regarding these two models, but as soon as we will find out something we will let you know!
