2025 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS T Hybrid Technical Animation


Porsche is known for making notable changes during its car facelifts, and the revamped 992-chassis 911 for 2025 is a prime example. The major update for this model year is the introduction of a hybrid version. The new Carrera GTS combines the classic rear-mounted flat-six engine with an electric motor and electric turbocharger, delivering a powerful 532 horsepower and 449 pound-feet of torque. This model is expected to hit the market by the year’s end. The Carrera GTS now features a 3.6-liter flat-six engine, an upgrade from the previous 3.0-liter engine, which will still be used in other 911 models.

This new engine alone generates 478 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, a slight boost from the previous GTS engine. The hybrid setup allows Porsche to replace the twin turbochargers with a single electric turbocharger. This electric turbocharger, powered by an 11-kW motor, spins up quickly for rapid response, reducing turbo lag and recharging the 400-volt battery efficiently. Additionally, a 32.6-hp traction motor is placed between the flat-six engine and the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. Both are powered by a small 1.9-kWh battery located under the front hood, where the 12-volt battery usually resides in other 911 models.

The 12-volt battery has been moved to a compartment behind the rear parcel shelf. This powertrain enhances performance across the rev range while maintaining an optimal air-fuel ratio of 14.7:1 nearly all the time. Overall, the new Carrera GTS is 103 pounds heavier than its predecessor due to additional standard features, including rear-wheel steering, but the increased power compensates for the extra weight. It’s the first 911 Carrera model to achieve a sub-3-second 0-60 mph time, clocking in at 2.9 seconds.


Besides the hybrid system, the Carrera GTS also features new active aerodynamic flaps at the front to improve cooling without increasing drag. The front and rear fascias have been slightly redesigned, new wheel options are available, and the rear tires are now 10 mm wider at 315/30ZR21, while the front tires remain at 245/35ZR20. Inside, the most notable change is the introduction of an all-digital gauge cluster, replacing the analog tachometer. However, the digital cluster still prominently displays the tachometer, preserving the 911 tradition.
