The upcoming Porsche 911 will have a hybrid version, and Porsche just gave us a sneak peek before the full reveal on May 28. They tested a new hybrid 911 at the Nürburgring Nordschleife track. It finished one lap in 7 minutes and 16.934 seconds.

That’s 8.7 seconds faster than the old model. We don’t know exactly which model it beat yet, but we’ll find out on May 28. The test car used regular road tires and had an optional aero kit with a fixed rear wing. Jörg Bergmeister, a Porsche ambassador, drove the lap.

Bergmeister said, “We have more grip, significantly more power, and the spontaneous response of the performance hybrid is a great advantage.”

Porsche also shared details about testing the hybrid 911. Frank Moser, the model line vice president for the 911, said, “We tested the new 911 in all kinds of conditions worldwide, from freezing cold to scorching heat. Our engineers and test drivers drove over 3.1 million miles during development.”
