Porsche updated the current 911 in 2015 where a new family of turbocharged engines was also inducted into the line-up. However, the car was originally launched in 2011, and a replacement is more than welcome. Though details have not been revealed, Porsche has earlier stated that the new 911 will preserve some of the features that make the 911’s character unique. Traits like the naturally aspirated engine, and the manual gearbox.
Furthermore, Porsche’s next-gen 911 is expected to be underpinned by a new modular platform which will feature a wider range of engines. One that will also include a hybrid powertrain, for the first time. The brand is already known to be working on a pure-electric vehicle called the Mission E which is slated for a 2020 debut.
It is likely that Porsche may launch the next-gen 911 in the first half of 2018 at an Auto Show, so stay tuned to CarWale for more news in the time to come.
