Hybrid Powertrain: A New Era for the Porsche 911

The 2025 Porsche 911 GTS now features a 3.6-liter turbocharged 6-cylinder boxer engine paired with an electric motor integrated into an 8-speed PDK transmission. This hybrid setup provides a combined power of 541 HP and 610 Nm, significantly higher than the previous non-hybrid model. The electric motor itself contributes 15 HP and 150 Nm.

With this new powertrain, the 911 GTS can accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in just 3 seconds, with a top speed limited to 312 kmph. The improved performance also translates to a faster Nurburgring lap time, now 7.17 seconds, shaving 8.7 seconds from the outgoing model's record. However, the inclusion of the 400V battery adds 50kg to the vehicle's weight.
