Porsche: No hybrid sports cars!

Porsche has now officially declined to work on hybrid sports cars, at least not for the 911 and Boxster.

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].”
