In this one, we’ve got info about the new Porsche Electrified Hypercar that most fans have started anticipating already 😊.
In fact, the production of the popular Porsche 918 Spyder was concluded by the brand since mid-2015 but it is actually going to take as long as 2025 before the brand rolls out a new flagship model that will fill in the void already on the ground.
Porsche Eletrified Hypercar will arrive in 2025 the earliest
Just like the same case with Porsche’s Hypercar Holy Trinity membership, the expected replacement has been planned to adopt an all-electric powertrain. But the puzzle that comes up now is; whether it will be a pure EV or a Hybrid car? Nevertheless, this anticipated flagship won't come to surface until the year 2025. Oliver Blume, the Porsche head honcho had made this revelation during a media interview at the Geneva Motor Show 2019 event.
According to him, he claims that the planned battery technology which will be suitable for such an expected range topper model is not yet ready which is why the company has decided to wait more before the new Hypercar can be released. He claims that by estimate, it will take another 3 to 4 years from now before the advancement of electric car batteries will be able to catch up to become appropriate for the proposed model having the same status as the 918 Spyder that is limited-run for now.

We know from the brand’s product strategy that the anticipated vehicle will be an electrified Hypercar but the brand hasn’t yet in anywhere specified if it will include an internal combustion engine or not. From observations, we see that this German automaker is partnering with Stanford University to research and work on the things which could help revolutionize the EV sector which gives us clear signals that the anticipated “High-performance car” could feature solid-state batteries.
Porsche has revealed in some of their research reports that an impressive 621 miles (1,000 km) of driving range can be achievable with Solid-State batteries, which interestingly will even be 30% lighter than all the current packs in use. And around 99% of the materials of each of these batteries will be recyclable for use again when due.
Last year, Volkswagen Group, the parent company of Porsche, invested a massive ₦36 billion ($100 million) in QuantumScape – a tech company based in California, just to work and experiment on the so-called Solid-State batteries in question. With all these reports and observations, Porsche can be seen to be having an ultimate goal of establishing a sort of production line in or before the middle of the decade to come.

However, it is also clear that many issues still need to be kind of ironed out especially with Blume about these new batteries production processes especially when it comes to the batteries’ discharge rate when not in use as well as the batteries’ daily use majorly in extreme situations or conditions.
However, fans are to expect a Hybrid 911 Porsche hypercar in 3 to 4 years from now and many indicators show that it will be likely positioned just above the Turbo S in its vast lineup.
So, let’s all just keep our fingers crossed, sit back, relax and wait for Porsche to announce and introduce breakthroughs in each of their ongoing researches as well as unveil all these highly anticipated hypercars soon.
