Porsche 911: Hybrid racer to be unveiled for Nurburgring 24 hours

Porsche 911
Porsche is said to unveil a hybrid Porsche 911 racecar for the 24 hours of Nurburgring.

A hybrid Porsche 911 will race at the Nurburgring 24 Hours this year, and could form the basis of a car for a return to Le Mans with an LMP1 prototype.

Reports suggest the Porsche 911 GT3-RSR is being prepared to run as a petrol-electric hybrid, using an F1-style KERS system.

Porsche has refused to comment on the car, but an announcement is expected later this week.

“It is not a question of yes or no, but a question of how and when,” said Porsche motorsport boss Hartmut Kristen when asked about its hybrid intentions.
