As we move out of the gas-powered era of automobiles and into a more modern, eco-friendly time where electric cars become the norm, as Porsche enthusiasts, we have to ask ourselves if we want to see an electric version of the 911.
In today’s blog post from House Auto Group, we are going to take a look at both sides of the argument, and leave the decision to you. After all, whether Porsche makes an electric 911 may heavily rely on the demand of its clientele.
Electric Cars Are Our Future
There is no doubt left, electric cars are our future. If we want to leave behind a sustainable world for our children and grandchildren, we need to make big changes in our modes of transportation, and we need to do it soon. Porsche has already been a leader of sorts in the luxury car business, introducing the Taycan, the first all-electric Porsche. In fact, Porsche foresees 80% of their sales being from electric cars by the year 2030. However, they do believe that the last hold-out in gas-powered Porsches will be the 911.
There has been an argument made by some Porsche owners and enthusiasts that the legacy of the 911 should not be marred by the introduction of an electric 911. There are many who feel that a large part of the experience of driving a Porsche 911 is the satisfaction of shifting the gears, the smell of the burnt fuel, and other aspects that will not be possible with an electric car. Some fear that if Porsche makes a car and labels it an electric 911, there will be no way that this electric car will meet the expectations of 911 enthusiasts.
Should We Bring the 911 into the Future?
However, there is another side to this argument. While it is totally possible that Porsche could retire the 911 and introduce a new electric Porsche made in its image, isn’t it also possible that they could create a new electric-powered 911 that exceeds all expectations, as Porsche has a habit of doing? And for the Porsche enthusiasts, wouldn’t you like your children and grandchildren to be able to experience a 911 for themselves, even when gas-powered vehicles are no longer the norm? Porsche has invested an unequivocal amount of time and resource into branding and creating the 911, so it may not make sense for them to retire a vehicle that everyone knows and loves.
At this point and time, we are unsure of how the future of the 911 looks — electric-powered or retirement?
