Porsche Released GT3 R Hybrid Teaser Trailer

Posted by Joel
Last week Porsche revealed the new Porsche GT3 R Hybrid race-only car. Rumors suggest a full return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans by Porsche, and this hybrid technology could help to give Porsche the efficiency and power boosts it needs to be competitive as early as 2012.

According to Leftlane News, the GT3 R Hybrid has all-wheel drive capability, and a significant power boost that can be activated with the push of a button to help accelerate out of turns, or while attempting to overtake fellow racers. The electric motors work in conjunction with the traditional 4.0-liter 480 hp flat-six that is driving the rear wheels.

Although the system in the GT3 R Hybrid wouldn't work in a consumer version of the car, Porsche has hinted that some technology may trickle down to a street version of the 911 in the near future.

Check out this incredible teaser trailer.
