Porsche is putting the spotlight of its presence at the 81st Geneva Motor Show on the world premiere of a parallel full hybrid model. The new hybrid model is being unveiled on 1st March 2011 at the press conference to be held on the Porsche stand in Hall 1, stand number 1050, starting at 7:30 am in the morning. It will be an early call for the GTspirit team.
The world premiere in Geneva is being complemented by the 918 RSR hybrid racing car concept, making its first public appearance in front of a European audience. The mid-engine coupé combines the design of the 918 Spyder with the technology of the 911 GT3 R hybrid racing car. Porsche is also showcasing the especially sporty 330hp Cayman R in Europe for the first time.
Limited special editions of the 911 and Boxster model lines are two especially tasty morsels rounding off the appearance in Geneva. Porsche is producing the 911 Black Edition, limited to 1,911 units, based on the 345hp 911 Carrera. The Boxster S Black Edition, which with its 320hp packs ten hp more power than the Boxster S, is limited to 987 units.
The release follows after the first information of a Porsche Boxster E, a full-electric version of the sports car. The Boxster E configuration includes two electric motors producing 180kW. Batteries are used as an energy storage and have a capacity of 29 kilowatt hours. The vehicle was on display last week in front of the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
