2025 Porsche 911 GTS Unveils T-Hybrid Power in the 992.2 Generation

Introducing the new 2025 Porsche 9911. So, what’s new about it? Well, in short, a lot of evolution but also some significant revolution. Initially, Porsche is announcing only two versions: the base Carrera and then the GTS, traditionally one of the later introduced variants.

The decision to alter the order stems from the GTS’s popularity; evidently, when customers are faced with a choice between Carrera S and GTS, they lean towards the GTS. Thus, Porsche sees fit to bring it forward.

But what truly sets the GTS apart from the outset is its intrinsic novelty: an all-new engine, dubbed the T hybrid. This innovation does not transform the 911 into a Prius; it’s distinct from the e-hybrid plugins found in other Porsches. The hybrid system is designed to complement the new 3.6 L boxer 6, rather than run independently.

Additionally, an electric motor within the turbocharger virtually eliminates turbo lag, among other benefits, resulting in a total system output of 532 horsepower and 449 lb-ft of torque. I had the opportunity to experience a hot lap in the GTS, and I can assure you, there’s nothing remotely hybrid-feeling about it.

As for the standard Carrera, it retains its 3 L boxer 6, albeit with new turbos and an intercooler derived from the old GTS. There’s no electric augmentation here.

Output remains at 388 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. And for those wondering about a manual transmission, the base Carrera won’t offer one now or in the future. As for the GTS, the placement of the T hybrid’s Electric Motor necessitates integration into the PDK transmission, rendering the 7MT an impossibility. However, enthusiasts need not dismiss the manual entirely, as future variants may yet accommodate it.

Now, let’s delve into the design changes. The base Carrera, notably a Cabriolet, retains its metal components while undergoing significant alterations elsewhere.

For instance, the number plate’s placement is adjusted to streamline bumper designs, especially noticeable on the GTS with its inward sport exhaust.

Other modifications include a thicker lighting unit, featuring a new black trim piece to enhance the Porsche font. The rear corners are accentuated to emphasize the car’s width, while changes to the air intake design add a distinctive touch.

At the front, the lighting unit integrates within the LED Matrix headlight assembly, boasting 16,000 individual LEDs. The lower fascia now extends lower, complemented by new horizontal elements.

However, it’s the GTS that truly stands out, with its active aerodynamic features that adjust based on cooling demands. Inside, a start button debuts, retaining its traditional left-side placement.

Digital instrumentation, including a five-gauge design, offers more comprehensive information than before. The updated tech interface now includes wireless charging, while rear-wheel steering becomes standard across all Carreras.

In summary, the new 92.2 generation is set to debut this fall with the Carrera, followed by the GTS in the winter, marking an exciting chapter in Porsche’s evolution.
