Porsche 911 GT3 Hybrid slated for a Geneva Debut

The Geneva Motor Show will be a great event with some scorching cars and one of the highlights of the event will be the unveiling of the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid. The hybrid system which features in this car is tailor-made for racing and it is different from the conventional hybrid systems like the one found in the Prius.

Porsche has used a fly-wheel generator in a KERS and the generators rotor renders 40,000rpm which then combines with regenerative brakes to send eight-second power bursts to the motors. The entire combination involves a couple of front mounted motors that churn 161hp and a rear-mounted 4.0-liter 480-horsepower flat-six engine. The racing entity is scheduled for an endurance test before summer and the Hybrid will also participate in the 24 Hours on the Nordschleife of Nürburgring later this year.
