Porsche is not abandoning the idea of a flagship model, which could become the ideological successor to the 918 Spyder hypercar. However, as the head of Porsche, Oliver Bloome, told Autocar, now the company faces other challenges, and the development of the hypercar has been postponed until the second half of the decade.
- Porsche management has always kept in mind the idea of building a flagship hypercar. But now the company's engineers are primarily busy with the problems of electrifying the model range, and the task of creating a particularly powerful and fast model is not the first priority.
- The company intends to invest in the development of battery technology, and will not start developing the flagship until it considers batteries suitable for it. According to Bloome, this will not happen until the middle of the decade. “Until 2025, we will not have a hypercar. But later it may well appear,”the publication quotes the words of the head of the company.
Perhaps the development of a successor to the 918 Spyder, which will become all-electric, will be helped by engineers from the Croatian firm Rimac. At the beginning of March, it became known that Porsche had increased its stake in this company from 15 to 24%, and Rimac specialists had already begun work on some high-tech components for future production Porsches.
- Around the same period of time, the most iconic model of the company, the Porsche 911, can receive its dose of electricity. The company flatly refuses to fully switch to electric traction, claiming that at least this decade, the "nine hundred and eleventh" will keep the internal combustion engine. However, as Autoblog writes with reference to the statement of the same Bloom, Porsche is already considering the concept of a hybrid version of the 911 - it can be built based on the technologies used on the cars for Le Mans.
