2025 Porsche 911 Adds Hybrid Carrera GTSPorsche
  • 2025 Porsche 911 Carrera models get an updated version of the 3.0-liter engine, which now makes 388 hp—a 9 hp increase.

  • The 2025 Porsche 911 GTS adds a hybrid powertrain, which sports an electric motor integrated into the eight-speed transmission and an electric motor in the turbocharger.

  • The 2025 Porsche 911 GTS also uses a turbocharged 3.6-liter boxer-six that makes 478 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque before adding the hybrid system.

After 60 years, Porsche is finally turning the 911 into a hybrid.

Well, one model of the 911, anyway, and it’s not close to being a slouch. For 2025, Porsche is giving its beloved 911 a light update, which includes powertrain updates for the base Carrera models, as well as a new hybrid powertrain for its 911 GTS models. Joining these powertrain upgrades are updates to the suspension and some styling changes for the new model year.


Base Carrera power still comes from a turbocharged 3.0-liter boxer mill. This base powertrain get new turbochargers from the outgoing GTS models, which push fresh air through the intercooler lifted from the 911 Turbo. These changes help add 9 hp to the base Carrera and crank out up the output to 388 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque.

Porsche says that this updated Carrera can sprint to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, or 3.7 seconds if you tack on the Sport Chrono package. Porsche also says the updated 911 Carrera tops out at 183 mph, a 1 mph bump over the outgoing model.

For GTS models, Porsche is adding what it calls a T-Hybrid system. The 2025 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS sports a turbocharged 3.6-liter boxer-six that makes 478 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. That power heads either to the rear or all four tires.

Adding to that, Porsche integrated an electric motor into an eight-speed PDK that makes 53 hp and 110 lb-ft of torque. Porsche also added an electric motor to the turbocharger, which helps to more quickly spool up. This motor can also take those exhaust gases and convert them to 11 kW of electricity. This single-turbocharger system also does not use a wastegate.

Feeding these electric motors is a compact and lightweight battery pack. Porsche says the battery is about the same size as the 911’s 12-volt battery and can hold up to 1.9 kWh of energy. Porsche also notes that this is a 400-volt system.

With the hybrid system, the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS makes a combined 532 hp and 449 lb-ft of torque, which is a 59 hp bump over the current 911 GTS. Porsche also says that this hybrid system isn’t too much of a weight penalty, saying the 2025 GTS only weighs 103 pounds more than the current model.

Underneath the 911 Carrera GTS, you’ll find standard rear-axle steering for the first time. Porsche also says that you can add on the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control system if you want to take advantage of the wild hydraulic suspension. Rounding out the updates, Porsche says that there are seven different wheel options across the Carrera lineup.

The exterior updates are subtle, as is the tradition with 911 models. At the front, Porsche has integrated all the lighting into the LED matrix headlamps. Porsche says this allows for more space for larger air intakes in the front. Carrera GTS models sport five vertical air flaps at the front that help guide air and active front diffusers that also work to guide air.

At the rear, you’ll find a revised light bar with Porsche lettering. There’s a new deck lid grille, a new license plate mount location, and a simplified rear fascia. Porsche also says that there will be model-specific exhaust systems that integrate into the diffuser fins.

On the inside of the 2025 911, Porsche shoppers will see only two seats as standard issue. For no extra cost, you can throw in the back seats if you want.

The ’25 911 also features a 12.6-inch curved digital driver display that features seven display views. Of course, there’s still the 10.9-inch center display screen that handles your multimedia functions. Video streaming joins the list of features, but, thankfully, only works when the vehicle is parked. Apple CarPlay sticks around for ’25, and information from CarPlay can be viewed in the instrument cluster.

As for when you can get one of these ’25 Porsche 911 models, Porsche says deliveries will start in the fall. However, the order books are open right now for coupe and cabriolet rear-drive Carrera models.

The 2025 Carrera GTS is also available to order, with the same fall delivery target. For fans of 911 Turbos and GT3 RS models, don’t worry: They’re sticking around for 2025, too.

Base 911 Carrera coupes will start at $122,095, which is over a $6,000 bump from the Carrera’s current $116,050 sticker price. The updated GTS models will start at $166,895. That’s a $14,345 bump over a current 911 Carrera GTS. Turbo models and the GT3 RS will carry over pricing for 2025.
