Hybrids are everywhere, we are now all aware of the importance of having eco-friendly technology for the future of our planet. And hybrids are a good step in the right direction. Less pollution, less emissions. A lot of people have hybrids nowadays, for everyday life.
But who would have thought that Porsche would create a competition-calibre hybrid car?
Well now they have! It will be called the 911 GT3 R Hybrid and they will be unveiling it at the Geneva Motor Show in March before taking it to Nordschleife of the Nurburgring for a 24hr race!
The system used in the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid is completely different from the conventional hybrid systems. The front axle has two electric motors, and an electrical flywheel power generator installed inside next to the driver, it spins up to 40,000 rpm while it mechanically stores energy and also works as an electric motor. Enough tech talk, high powered eco-hybrids are developing at such a rate that even racing developers are starting to get involve in the eco-friendly spirit.
Maybe it won’t be too long before we see this kind of automotive technology used in Formula 1!
