Driving the hybrid Porsche 911 | Thank Frankel it's Friday

We have known since March that the second generation of the 992 series of Porsche 911 will feature a hybrid powertrain. Further details are not yet available but I understand that full disclosure is not far away. When those stories are published, many will be keen to point out that this is the first time in the long and illustrious history of the 911 that the output of its flat-six motor has been boosted by electrical power. And they will all be wrong.

Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
