The first-ever road-going hybrid Porsche 911 debuts with 532 horsepower. It is the first ever Carrera model to break into the sub-3-second 0-60mph range


Six years after Porsche confirmed that an electrified version of the iconic 911 sports car is in the works, the German automaker has finally revealed the first-ever hybrid 911. Behold the new 2025 992.2 911 Carrera GTS, which is powered by a new T-Hybrid powertrain. But before we go deeper into the details of the world’s first production hybrid 911, let me tell you that its electrified power unit doesn’t focus on fuel efficiency but outright performance. The updated 911 GTS features a new 3.6-liter flat-six instead of the old 3.0-liter unit. The combustion engine alone churns out 478hp and 420lb-ft of torque, which is a bump of 5hp over the previous GTS. It uses a single, electrically enhanced turbocharger that can spool quickly for fast response and almost eliminates turbo lag. There is an 11-kW (14.7-hp) motor on the shaft between the turbine and compressor that can also put back power into the battery.


The combustion engine is supplemented by a powerful electric motor/generator that shares the housing of the eight-speed PDK transmission, which helps boost the overall output to 532 horsepower and 449 pound-feet of torque. Both electric motors draw power from a tiny 1.9-kWh battery that is located under the front hood, right where the 12-volt battery can be found in other 911 variants.

In the new GTS, the 12-volt battery sits in a compartment behind the rear parcel shelf. The hybrid powertrain also doesn’t require a starter or an additional generator, as both functions are taken care of by the transmission-mounted 54-hp motor.


The 992.2 911 Carrera GTS weighs 103 pounds more than the outgoing model, thanks to the battery pack and the motors. However, some of the weight gain can also be attributed to added standard equipment, including rear-wheel steering. Yet, the new GTS is the 911 Carrera model to break into the sub-3-second as far as the 0-60mph time is concerned. The hybrid 911 can do the 0-60mph sprint in 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 193mph.

Other updates include new active aerodynamic flaps at the front that improve cooling, while other styling tweaks are subtle and hard to notice. Inside the cabin, the biggest change comes in the form of an all-digital gauge cluster. The new 911 GTS is priced at $166,895, which is more than $14,000 more expensive than the model it replaces. Porsche says the hybrid 911 will arrive at the dealerships by the end of this year.
