LOS ANGELES -- The Porsche 911 will likely get a plug-in hybrid variant midway through its next generation, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume says.
With the redesigned 911 set to go on sale in 2019, that means the mid-cycle update -- and thus the plug-in -- would arrive about four years later or around 2023.
“We will come with the plug-in hybrid with the next battery generation and with the next evolution step,” Blume told Automotive News at an event here at the Los Angeles auto show. “It will be very important for the 911 to have a plug-in hybrid.”
That decision hasn’t gone through final confirmation yet, but Blume said it’s “my opinion that we will go for it.”
