Porsche officially confirms 919 Hybrid, 911 RSR for 2014 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on March 2, 2014

Earlier this week we’ve told you about a Porsche 911 (991) Targa Turbo and a possible debut this month at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The bad news came few days ago when the rumors about a Turbo version of the new Targa were dismissed by Nick Twork, Porsche North America Product Communications Manager.

Twork said that Porsche will not present a 911 (991) Targa Turbo in Geneva and that it will bring the 919 Hybrid and the 911 (991) RSR. Today, the German manufacturer officially announced that will indeed bring the 919 Hybrid and the 911 (991) RSR at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Powered by a 2.0-liter V4 engine, the 919 Hybrid can therefore be regarded as a research laboratory for the technology of future Porsche production vehicles.

Moreover, the two race cars will be flanked by the new Macan compact SUV, which was introduced last November at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. In the official press release, Porsche said that it will bring the Macan S Diesel that features a turbocharged 258 hp engine with PDK transmission, the 400 hp 3.6-litre V6 Macan Turbo as well as the 340 hp 3.0-litre V6 Macan S.

Active all-wheel drive with Porsche Traction Management is standard on all models. Porsche will also bring the 911 (991) Targa, which was introduced back in January at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

The 911 (991) Targa comes with a 3.4-liter petrol engine that generates 350 hp, while the more potent 911 (991) Targa S is powered by a 3.8-liter petrol engine that delivers 400 hp. The new design of the 911 (991) Targa is a tribute to the original 911 Targa design from 1960s. As a result, the new sports car features an innovative electric folding centre roof section, and curved glass rear window.
