Video: Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid On Track

Today Porsche, out of the blue, announced that they have developed a hybrid race car based on the 911 GT3 R! The car is set for debut at the upcoming motor show in Geneva, and will make its racing debut at this year’s Nurburgring 24 Hrs in May. Now the company released a video footage of the car flexing muscle on the race track, as a kind of taster!

This hybrid racer is powered by a 480 horsepower 4.0 liter flat-six engine at the back, and two 60 Kw electric motors on the front axle. It also uses a new and very very clever electronically controlled flywheel which acts as the kinetic energy recovery unit and feeds the electric motors instead of the heavy batteries. More details on the car HERE.
