Porsche 911 Carrera revealed in police livery in Austria

A lot of heads turned in Austria when a police car pulled over. Not because there was an accident, but because it was a new Porsche 911. For decades now, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Interior has been known to drive around the nicest cars, as Porsche used to supply cars to the country's law enforcement agencies.

This partnership first began in the 1960s and now has been taken to the 21st century. Therefore, the automaker provided the agency with a brand new 911 Carrera to ensure the country's safety, as they pull over traffic offenders.

Naturally, Porsche had to give the Carrera a little bit of customization to make it look like a police car. The 911 was designed with a police livery, and blue flashing lights to match. Not to mention the radio system required by police. We learned that the Porsche is a free loan and will also be used by the local Federal Ministry of Interior until the fourth quarter of the year.

In addition, this 6-cylinder 4-liter flat engine has been placed on the rear.

In terms of design, both the apron in the front and the rear section have been redesigned in order to enhance downforce. As a result, this allowed the 911 GT3 Cup to offer better performance and traction.

It remains equipped with the 18-inch one-piece racing wheels that have a central locking mechanism. The 270 mm. Michelin racing tires are fitted on the front axle while the 310 mm. tires are on the rear axle.

Three plug-in hybrid models are currently available from Porsche, the 918 Spyder, Panamera S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne S E-Hybrid. Still, you shouldn’t expect any new models from the German manufacturer, as company’s hybrid powertrain manager Manfred Schumann told TopGear that is is impossible to use the same technology from the Panamera S E-Hybrid for example, on the smaller Macan.

As a result, Porsche is not planning to offer a hybrid version of the Macan, at least for now. Regarding the plug-in hybrid version of the 911, Porsche said that it is too early yet and the current 911 will not receive any plug-in hybrid tech.

Maybe the next-generation will! The last plug-in hybrid model introduced by Porsche, was the facelifted Cayenne S E-Hybrid. This model uses a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine that delivers 333 hp (245 kW) and an electric motor that produces an additional 95 hp (70 kW).
