Porsche is on a roll this year, having already debuted an updated Taycan and the long-awaited Macan EV. Next is the iconic 911, which has now been confirmed to be receiving a mid-cycle refresh this summer. The highlight will be a new hybrid variant––the first ever in 911 history.

Porsche CEO Oliver Blume announced that the 911 hybrid will be revealed alongside the rest of the 992.2 lineup during the summer months, and it will feature racing-inspired technology similar to other electrified performance cars. "Once again we are deploying technology in series-production models that we have derived from the world of motorsport," he said. "And our customers can look forward to further technological innovations along those same lines."


Porsche has been great at keeping the details under wraps, though rumor has it that an electric motor will be tacked onto the front axle while the familiar flat-six engine will continue motivating the rear wheels. The 911 hybrid is expected to be a self-charging hybrid rather than a plug-in, as the battery––which Porsche has apparently partnered up with stakeholder Rimac to develop––will be there to help reduce weight. The sports car will not be focusing as much on range.

Based on prototype sightings, the entire 992.2 lineup is expected to receive modest changes to their exteriors, including a redesigned front fascia, updated lighting elements, and relocated tailpipes. In addition, some models are expected to switch out their existing powertrains in favor of new ones––but don't worry, the six-cylinder layout isn't going anywhere.
