What It’s Like To Drive The New Porsche 911 GTS T-Hybrid

The legendary Porsche 911 gets a high-tech makeover with the introduction of the new GTS T-Hybrid. Unlike traditional plug-in hybrids, the new 911 GTS prioritizes performance over pure electric driving.

The GTS is equipped with a 3.6L flat-six engine churning out 478 horsepower on its own. But the real magic lies in the integration of two electric motors. One eliminates turbo lag by rapidly spooling the turbocharger, while the other provides an extra boost of power. The combined system delivers a whopping 534 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque, propelling the car from 0-62 mph in just 3 seconds and a top speed of 194 mph.

While the hybrid system promises impressive fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, it comes at a cost. Porsche claims a weight gain of 50 kg (110 lbs) due to the additional components.  This added weight might affect the car’s handling, a crucial aspect of the 911’s legacy.
