Porsche to show hybrid at Salon de Genève


February 11, 2010/11.56

A Porsche hybrid? That’s exactly what the Stuttgart manufacturer is planning to launch on March 4 at the Salon de Genève: a hybrid version of its 911 GT3.
   Dubbed the 911 GT3 R Hybrid, the car was developed for racing. The electrical front axle drive has two electric motors developing 60 kW each, supplementing the 480 bhp flat-six engine at the rear. An electrical flywheel power generator delivers energy to the motors, instead of batteries.
   Porsche claims that its founder, Ferdinand Porsche, came up with the first car with hybrid drive 110 years ago, called the Semper Vivus. The 1900 model, built for k.u.k. Hofwagenfabrik Ludwig Lohner & Co. of Wien, featured two combustion engines and an electric hub motor, and could store energy in a battery.
