Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid: Pending the model of series

The prestigious German manufacturer Porsche, innovates once again by presenting a new race car driven by a hybrid powertrain, like no other.

In fact, it uses technology 'KERS' developed by the Williams Formula 1 stables, but adapted to a Porsche 911 GT3, developed especially for circuits.

This technological approach is made at the base of a six-cylinder flat, always room at the back that develops 480 horsepower. Here it is second by two electric motors 60 kW each that will assist him in leading to the front wheels, in addition to giving a little more stability to the car, especially when cornering emissions.

This additional aid must be activated by the driver and only lasts six to eight seconds.

The main feature of this approach is to replace the battery with a wheel-type kinetics, whose first mission is to feed the electric motors. This electromagnetic driving and draws its energy from mechanical way, via a rotor that rotates 40 000tr/min. Basically, it will look at the energy required many braking, allowing electric motors serve as generators to power the rotor.

The Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid will debut in the upcoming race Nurburgring 24 Hours to be held next May.

This beautiful technological achievement will be officially unveiled to the public during the International Motor Show in Geneva, which will open in a fortnight.

In addition, Porsche is currently develop a Cayenne SUV and a sports section 911, both powered by a hybrid engine. Commercialization of these two models is planned within the next couple of years.
