Shanghai/Stuttgart.For the first time in Porsche icon’s 61-year history, the first Porsche 911 sports car for the road with a hybrid drive followed an extensive development and testing programme, and ready for series production. Over the course of performance testing, Porsche brand ambassador Jörg Bergmeister completed a lap of the circuit in 7:16.934 minutes on the Nürburgring Nordschleife – 8.7 seconds faster than the corresponding version of the predecessor model. This innovative performance hybrid makes the 911 even more dynamic, covering different road conditions, terrains and climates all around the world, from the freezing cold to scorching heat, as was the case during the final stages of testing in Dubai. All in all, our engineers and test drivers clocked up more than five million kilometres of development driving.

The world premiere of the new Porsche 911 will be broadcast on 28 May at 21:00 CST in the Porsche Newsroom, and on the Porsche channels on Wechat, Weibo, Tiktok and the Red.

The new 911 Completed final test

“We left nothing to chance during development and tested the new 911 under all sorts of conditions all over the world.” says Frank Moser, Vice President Model Line 911 and 718. “Whether at a high drivetrain load in the demanding conditions of mountain passes or in the stop-and-go traffic of an urban environment, the new 911 has mastered even the most difficult challenges with aplomb. " Testing and tuning on the Nürburgring Nordschleife has always had a special significance during development of the 911. The test car was equipped with standard road tyres, plus the aero kit with a fixed rear wing that has been available as an option for several model generations now, and which provides increased downforce at high speeds. “The new 911 has become considerably faster on the track,” says Bergmeister. “We have more grip, significantly more power, and the spontaneous response of the performance hybrid is a great advantage.”
