Porsche already offers the 53 MPG Panamera hybrid luxury sedan and the 918 Spyder hybrid super car – not to mention the GT3 flywheel hybrid and the blisteringly quick Porsche 919 Hybrid LeMans racer! As a leader in advanced hybrid tech, then, it should come as no surprise to hear that Porsche is developing a plug-in version of its iconic 911.

Only these aren’t rumors or fuzzy, unclear spy photos of a 911 hybrid. These are actual patent drawings. It’s coming.

As you can see from the patent drawing, above, the plug-in 911 should offer an EV mode with high-end lithium-ion batteries can be charged via the Porsche Universal Charger (PAC), or by being connected to a conventional, household electrical outlet.

No word, yet, on when the new plug-in Porsche will come online, but with hybrid-only laws being passed in key markets like London and Beijing, Porsche needs a plug-in 911 to arrive in showrooms sooner rather than later.
