Rumors about a hybrid version of the Porsche 911 have been swirling around for years and it seems there’s still a chance for the vehicle to be greenlighted.

Speaking to Automotive News, Porsche CEO Matthias Müller commented “we could have plug-ins all over the model range, not only to save fuel but also to boost the performance of these cars.” According to him, the 911 hybrid will “possibly” be the next one and the final decision will be taken by the end of the year.

Müller also said “we are firmly convinced that the plug-in technology is the solution for the nearer future” and “that is a technique which we at Porsche are very familiar with”.

Currently, Porsche is offering three plug-in hybrid models – the 918 Spyder supercar, the Panamera S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne S E-Hybrid.
