[11-Feb-2010] Porsche AG will unveil the 911 GT3 R hybrid on March 4th in
Geneva, exactly 110 years after Ferdinand Porsche developed the world's
first car with hybrid drive, the Lohner Porsche Semper Vivus. This will
open a new chapter in the history of Porsche with more than 20,000 wins in
45 years scored by the extremely successful Porsche 911 in racing trim. The
innovative hybrid technology featured in the car has been developed
especially for racing, standing out significantly in its configuration and
components from conventional hybrid systems. The car features electrical
front axle drive with two electric motors developing 60 kW each supplements
the 480-bhp four-litre flat-six at the rear of the 911 GT3 R Hybrid. A
further significant point is that instead of the usual batteries in a
hybrid road car, an electrical flywheel power generator fitted in the
interior next to the driver delivers energy to the electric motors.
