2019 Porsche 911: Does This Look Hybrid?

By  | 

Although the sports car brand isn’t finished with the current-gen model yet, there are already signs of significant progress on the next-gen Porsche 911 that’s supposed to be due in 2019. It was most recently spotted by spy photographers testing its moves at Nurburgring.

This time it’s a little different, because the prototype could very well be first plug-in hybrid (PHEV) 911. As reported by Motor1, there appeared to be another fuel door at the rear fender of the spied vehicle which leads to suspicion of a plug-in setup underneath.

That, however, is merely a superficial indicator of the next Porsche 911 having an alternative powertrain. The automaker could have placed the second fuel door to just troll spies and leave us all guessing wrongly. Besides, the prototype didn’t bear any bright warning stickers which would betray it as a PHEV or BEV.

Do you think the next-gen Porsche 911 would be offered as a PHEV when it arrives? Would it have any form of electrification, or is that reserved exclusively for the Mission E?
