Since the cost of manufacturing hybrid powertrain is dropping, and itsĀ mechanical performance is raising within these years, now it is practically for auto makers to introduce hybrid powertrain in their sports-oriented models. This is exactly the case for the next-generation Porsche 911.

The next-gen 911 will be debutedĀ  about 3 years later, the future 911 Carrera 4 will be the first model to receive a hybrid powertrain, which uses traditional gasoline engine to power the rear wheels, while utilizes an electric motor to drive the front wheels. According to our source, the hybrid 911 Carrera 4 will not use a turbocharged gasoline engine, instead the auto maker prefers a naturally aspirated engine, because the electric motor can compensate the low-RPM torque perfectly.
