Great test drive report here with the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid. Enjoy the video!
What’s it like?
Quite spooky, incredibly efficient but also just very, very exciting to use. When you press the magic button for the first time it actually feels a bit like a cheat, the rush of extra acceleration comes at you that fast. But when you get used to the way it works – the way it can alter not just your speed along a straight but also the handling balance mid corner even – the hybrid GT3 R is quite clearly a highly significant piece of kit; the beginning of a brand new era.
In practice, the system recharges so fast that it is constantly available, simply because unless you forget to press the brakes for some strange reason, you are always recharging the system.
