Discussions about SUVs and electrified vehicles would’ve. Nonetheless, Porsche has opened the door with the first Cayenne and hasn’t looked back – and, financially, is doing better than ever, together with the Macan and Cayenne topping their sales graphs.
Now, the company is entering a whole new ball game with the arrival of its first electric vehicles in the kind of the Taycan, which will be coming this fall, and the more practical Taycan Sport Turismo.
Of course, Porsche has, for some time, rolled out PHEV versions of some of its models. The new generation of the 911 will sit alongside those eco-friendly models, as a plug-in hybrid version of the iconic sports car was confirmed last year by CEO Oliver Blume.
More recently, it’s been introduced into discussion by the newest ’s Product and Technology Communication representative, Ben Weinberger, who told us the following: “The new 911 is intended to be hybrid capable, but will not be offered as a hybrid at launch. But maybe in the course of its life cycle. ”
The electrified 992 is believed to combine a flat-six engine with an electric motor, which would give it a whole output of up to 700 horsepower. It will get & ldquo; a button for additional punch & rdquo and should also have the ability to travel for short distances alone on electricity;, Blume said.
While the 911 PHEV/Hybrid seems certain, it’ll be a while until Porsche decides whether the Cayenne is a contender for the race. The organization ’s contemplating with the concept of getting the full-size SUV with a zero-emission powertrain, underpinned by a dedicated platform.
“For the model lines, such as the Cayenne, we are step by step testing rdquo & the electrification;, Weinberger informed CarScoops. This is regarded simply because of the CO2 laws ”, as a car would help Porsche lower the carbon dioxide emissions.
We’ve been sitting kind of in the grey zone until now, so let’s move towards the light which, in this case, is the electric Macan. It’s already been confirmed for production and will arrive next decade, riding on the PPE architecture co-developed with Audi.
The first all-electric Porsche is just six months away. The Taycan will start in September instead to the Tesla Model S, together with the range-topping Turbo (a misnomer – but anyway …) having in excess of 600 horsepower on tap and the ability of traveling for more than 500 km (311 miles) on a single charge, in the NEDC cycle.
Previewed by the Mission E Cross Turismo Concept, the Taycan Cross Turismo will hit showrooms next, with exactly the same powertrain as the sedan, albeit in a jacked-up package with a Shooting Brake/Estate body design.
We’ve saved the best for last, as the 918 Spyder successor, which should come after 2025, is in the film. Unlike the hybrid hypercar stopped in 2015, the new one could be all-electric, according to Blume – and Rimac, in which Porsche has purchased a stake and is getting ready to launch its nearly 2,000 HP C_Two electric hypercar, might just get involved.
