Soul cannot be lost! Porsche 911 will keep the engine as long as possible

Porsche 911 preserves the engine to retain its soul

【phoneauto News】The Porsche 911 is a classic sports car, and its engine is one of its trademarks. However, with the automotive industry shifting towards electrification, whether the Porsche 911 will abandon its engine has become a concern for many people.

Porsche 911

According to a report from The Drive website, Frank-Steffen Walliser, the project manager of Porsche 911, stated in an interview that Porsche 911 will retain its engine for as long as possible, even when other models are electrified.

Walliser believes that the engine is the soul of the Porsche 911, providing a unique driving experience and sound that cannot be replicated by electric cars. He also mentioned that the engine of the Porsche 911 is already highly efficient and environmentally friendly, and can further reduce emissions by using synthetic fuel or hydrogen fuel.

Walliser revealed that Porsche 911 is currently developing a mid-cycle facelift version of the eighth-generation model, which is expected to be released in 2023. This model will continue to use a turbocharged flat-six engine, but may incorporate some mild hybrid systems to improve performance and efficiency.

Walliser also mentioned that Porsche 911 may introduce a fully electric version in the future, but this will require significant advancements in battery technology to meet the weight and space requirements of the Porsche 911. He estimates that this will take at least 10 years or more.

In conclusion, the Porsche 911 will continue to adhere to the tradition of its engine while exploring new technologies and energy sources to adapt to changes in the automotive industry. For those who love the Porsche 911, this is undoubtedly good news.
