New porsche 911 hybrid

2025 Porsche 911 Hybrid Revealed

The first street-legal Porsche 911 Carrera equipped with a performance hybrid powertrain is here. It will find its way into the new 911 Carrera GTS variants (from AU$381,200 plus on-road costs) and combines a newly developed 3.6-litre six-cylinder boxer engine with a T-Hybrid system that uses an electric exhaust gas turbocharger and an electric motor for a total system output of 398 kW (541 PS) and 610 Nm. That combination has dropped the 0-100km/h time from 3.4 to 3.0 seconds.

Meanwhile, the 911 Carrera Coupé (from AU$280,500) benefits from a handful of upgrades to its 3.0-litre twin-turbo boxer engine for a power output of 290kW with no hybrid assistance.

The 992.2 generation Porsche 911 Carrera also adds more technology inside and out with a 12.6-inch fully digital instrument cluster for the driver, five vertically arranged flaps at the front bumper with active underbody cooling, and a redesigned light strip at the rear that sits lower to visually widen the vehicle from behind. Let’s check out the new hybrid 911 in detail!

Hybrid Power Added to GTS Models, Base Gets Turbo Upgrades

As mentioned, the new Porsche 911 Carrera GTS line-up will be powered by a 3.6-litre six-cylinder boxer engine combined with a lightweight T-Hybrid system that includes a small 1.9 kWh battery, an electric exhaust gas turbocharger, and an electric motor which has been integrated into the new, more powerful eight-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK).

The traditional twin-turbo set-up from the previous GTS model has been thrown out for a Mercedes-AMG-style single electric exhaust gas turbocharger that uses an integrated electric motor placed between the compressor and turbine wheel to instantaneously bring the turbocharger on boost.

This electric turbo can provide 11 kW of power electric power on it’s own, but the second, more powerful electric motor integrated into the new 8-speed PDK box provides a more significant power increase of up to 40 kW and 150 Nm of torque. Still, this is not a ‘Plug-in Hybrid’ model as the vehicle continues to focus on a performance driving experience with no claimed ‘all-electric range’ from the 1.9 kWh battery.

As far as power figures for the new hybrid 911 are concerned, the boxer engine alone delivers 357 kW (485 PS) and 570 Nm of torque, which then combines with the electric motor for a total system output of 398 kW (541 PS) and 610 Nm. This allows the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Coupé to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.0 seconds before reaching a top speed of 312 km/h.

Meanwhile, the standard Porsche 911 Coupé will use a lightly modified 3.0-litre twin-turbo boxer engine that is more powerful than its predecessors and now produces 290 kW (394 PS) and 450 Nm of torque. It’s taken the intercooler from the previous-gen Turbo models and the turbochargers from the GTS models to get to that figure. As such, the 0 to 100 km/h time has improved to 4.1 seconds (3.9 seconds with the Sport Chrono package), and the top speed is capped at 294 km/h.

Under the skin, you also get suspension trickery like rear-axle steering, which now comes as standard alongside an advanced Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) anti-roll stabilisation system integrated into the high-voltage system of the performance hybrid models.

More Technology, Added Practicality Inside

You’ll notice the changes inside this new model are mostly evolutionary, but we prefer it that way. There’s a standard driving mode switch on the steering wheel, a revised driver assistance lever, a cooled wireless charger inside the glovebox for your smartphone, and a start button, which makes its debut in a 911 model.

Technology has also increased, and this is the first time we’ve seen a fully digital instrument cluster in a Carrera. No longer do you have that gorgeous mechanical RPM gauge staring at you. Instead, you get the same curved 12.6-inch display from the new Cayenne, Macan, Panamera, and Taycan. It’s customisable in seven different ways and remains one of our favourites on the market, but there’s no doubt it will take some time for Porsche enthusiasts to get used to this change.

We’re glad to see the centrally-mounted 10.9-inch screen hasn’t ballooned into an oversize tablet-style display, and the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system is still operated via the same high-resolution central display. Finally, you can watch and stream videos to the display while parked.

Exterior Design Gets Edgier, More Efficient

Looking around the exterior of the new Porsche 911 you now get matrix LED headlights as standard, but we’re more interested in the redesigned light strip. You’ll notice the brand has added an integrated ‘PORSCHE’ logo and redesigned the rear grille with five fins per side, complemented by a retractable spoiler. If you like the look of the fixed wing, you can option the aero kit package for the 911 Carrera GTS for $5,700.

Speaking of the exterior design, you’re probably wondering about those five vertically arranged vents. They’re standard on the front bumper of the GTS model, and we’re pleased to say that they have a function, acting as cooling air flaps, which are further complemented by an adaptive front diffuser in the underbody to direct the air flow as required. For example, when power requirements are minimal the flaps are closed to optimise aerodynamics, and when you need maximum attack, the flaps direct large amounts of air to the radiators.

The exterior design is rounded out by your choice of seven 19-/20-inch or 20-/21-inch wheel designs. Those seeking maximum performance can option Exclusive Design wheels with carbon blades that reduce the drag coefficient and increase efficiency.

Here’s How Much the New Porsche 911 Costs

Prices for the updated Porsche 911 Carrera will start at $280,500 plus on-road costs in Australia, a $2,700 increase over the previous model ($277,800). Meanwhile, the most affordable Porsche Carrera 911 GTS with Hybrid tech will be priced at $381,200 plus on-road costs in the Carrera GTS Coupé rear-wheel drive specification, representing a $27,500 price increase ($353,700). If you want to go all out, the Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet and Targa are both priced from $437,900 plus on-roads.

Deliveries for all models in Australia are expected during Q1 2025, and it appears the brand has removed the manual gearbox from the line-up (for now), as the official press information does not mention the word ‘manual’ once, only stating “both model variants are equipped with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) as standard.”

  • 911 Carrera Coupé starts at $280,500*
