2019 Porsche 911 Teased As Company Hints At Electrified Variant

Porsche has released the first pictures of the next-generation 911.

Described as the “heart of the company” and “not simply a sports car,” the 911 has an evolutionary design which is instantly recognizable. While the pictures don’t reveal much, previous spy photos have shown the car will have an LED brake light strip and a high-tech interior with several digital displays.

Porsche isn’t ready to talk about specifics but 911 boss August Achleitner said the model will generate a “driving feeling that no other car can impart.” The company says this includes everything from the “astonishing amount of space” to the “perfect feedback from the brakes, steering and pedal system.” Porsche said these and other characteristics – such as a one-of-a-kind design – make the 911 the epitome of a sports car.

There’s no doubt the 911 will be more advanced than its predecessor but Achleitner said its driver assistance systems will have to fit with the character of the car. As Porsche explained, “no one buys a sports car because it offers adaptive cruise control or a lane-keeping assist function.” Achleitner noted these types of assistance systems are “convenient and useful” but drivers need to be able to switch them off as desired.

Despite his resistance to autonomous driving technology, Achleitner hinted at an electrified variant and Porsche confirmed it might be an “option somewhere down the line.” There has been a never-ending barrage of 911 Hybrid rumors but Porsche would only confirm there “will be a next step in terms of drive technology—if it fits Porsche and the specific character of the 911.”

    What a courageous bunch of designers. My Fiesta st gives me the same thrills for 19,000$, and that’s at least 9 times cheaper than a porsche.

      Your Fiesta is awesome, so is a Miata, Camaro SS 1LE, and a host of others. They are no 911 though.

    OMG that looks…oh wait, just like every other 911 before it. Yawn.

      And I’m still thankful to see it.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Makes me want a good 997. I’m starting to worry about the future of the 911.

  • DR.FUNK

    Failure to produce a fully electric 911 within the next 2 years…will result in a nasty brutish “extinction level event” for Porsche…or any other sports car maker.

  • SteersUright

    Would like to see more classic cue’s in the front bumper design as well. Its my least favorite part of modern 911’s. Also hope they develop smaller flat-6’s and NEVER move to a 4-cylinder like they did in the 981.

    An electric 911? Don’t get me wrong the 918 was an insane car but an electric 911 will spell the death of this car. By removing the Boxer engine from a Porsche,it will no longer make it a Porsche anymore. That’s the same if Subaru decides to go all electric in the future if they remove their Boxer engines they’ll no longer be Subarus. The defining character,and heritage and tradition of Subaru and Porsche is their awesome Boxer engines and all wheel drive systems (Subaru) and their rally racing heritage.
