Porsche 911 hybrid still on the cards, but not a priority

There has been a burning question among Porsche purists for a while now: will the Stuttgart brand really put a hybrid drivetrain into its performance icon, the Porsche 911? According to Porsche executive board member for research and development, Michael Steiner, there is potential for such a version of the 911. But it won’t be some fuel-sipping Prius wannabe - instead, customers and enthusiasts alike can expect a performance-oriented hybrid drivetrain derived from the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Porsche 918 Spyder recalled over chassis problems

Remember that Porsche 918 Spyder you were going to buy but couldn't because they were all sold out? Well, lucky - because 205 of the hybrid hypercars have been recalled due to defective chassis components. Porsche claim the recall is a precaution based upon results of internal testing - no issues or faults have actually been reported (unlike the 991 GT3).

Audi Le Mans road racer to challenge McLaren, Porsche, Ferrari: report

An all-new road-going Audi supercar will employ technology from the German brand's highly successful Le Mans race cars in a bid to take on the latest breed of upcoming hybrid performance cars. Destined to sit above the V8- and V10-powered Audi R8, the new Audi supercar will take the same diesel-hybrid technology found in the Audi R18 e-tron Le Mans race cars and meld them into a high-performance road car.

Porsche 918 Spyder: hybrid supercar gets track pack

The Porsche 918 Spyder, Porsche's plug-in hybrid supercar due in 2013, will be available with a racing-inspired track pack option for owners who feel the standard car just won't cut it. Autocar reports the track pack will be all about shedding more weight out of the carbonfibre-reinforced polymer (CRP)-monocoqued Porsche 918 Spyder by means of a stripped-out interior and the option of no paint.
