Porsche will not build hybrid versions of the 911 and Boxster, according to CEO Michael Macht.
Although the company has announced that it will make a hybrid version of the new Cayenne, Macht rejected the idea of giving its sports cars a petrol-electric powertrain.
“It’s technically possible but it’s not part of the plan. It also adds weight,” he said. “We want brake regeneraton and stop-start for our sports cars, but not hybrid. They’re not driven in the city, where you get most of the advantages [of a hybrid].”
