Porsche Confirms First Electric Two-Seater Will Be a 718, Not 911

But a hybrid version of the 911 is coming … sometime.

The first two-seat electric Porsche will be a 718, executives confirmed on a far-reaching video call with reporters.

Drivers can also expect a hybrid version of the Porsche 911, Oliver Blume, Porsche AG’s chief executive officer, said Thursday. But he did not specify when production—which would use on-board rather than plug-in hybrid technology—would begin. The question of how many variants of the 911 might get the hybrid treatment was also not answered.
