Porsche is Developing a Plug-in Hybrid 911

Blume also said he'd like to see the plug-in hybrid 911 offer more than 40 miles of all-electric range. "The potential is very good with the new generation of batteries."

12 years is a long time to own and build a project car. In a time when many projects are built and flipped as soon as they're done, 1 has to wonder: Why wouldn't you enjoy what time (and money) has afforded you to enjoy?
