Plug-in Porsche 911 Patent Drawing Revealed

The Porsche 911 is a flagship Porsche. Many people who will never even drive a 911 know all about it. A plug-in electric version of this hot Porsche sports car would certainly be one more big step towards an electric vehicle future, even though the large majority of us, again, would never touch the steering wheel of one of these things. Many people who love this car but don’t follow EVs at all would have an avenue into the EV revolution. It seems that’s in the works, as Jo writes over on Gas2:

Porsche already offers the 53 MPG Panamera hybrid luxury sedan and the 918 Spyder hybrid super car – not to mention the GT3 flywheel hybrid and the blisteringly quick Porsche 919 Hybrid LeMans racer! As a leader in advanced hybrid tech, then, it should come as no surprise to hear that Porsche is developing a plug-in version of its iconic 911.

Only these aren’t rumors or fuzzy, unclear spy photos of a 911 hybrid. These are actual patent drawings. It’s coming.

As you can see from the patent drawing, above, the plug-in 911 should offer an EV mode with high-end lithium-ion batteries can be charged via the Porsche Universal Charger (PAC), or by being connected to a conventional, household electrical outlet.

No word, yet, on when the new plug-in Porsche will come online, but with hybrid-only laws being passed in key markets like London and Beijing, Porsche needs a plug-in 911 to arrive in showrooms sooner rather than later.
