You think they would skip hybrid and go straight to all-electric?I doubt we get some kind of hydrid with the next facelift.
I expect that we get the new interior with the digital display like the last Panamera and Cayenne.
Similar changes as the this year coming 992.
I think Porsche will skip hybrid on the 718.
The next complete new modell of the 718 will be full electric and coming around 2023.
Analogue gauges are by far the best in general. Digital boards are hard to read whereas "position" is easily indicative. I remember when digital caused huge problems in planes.While I might find a full digital dash interesting, I'd have to see how it is on the 992 to see if I want it. I still like having some analogue gauges.
THe 718 seems to be following the development cycle of the 981 from 2012-2016, if that continued the 718 would get a total redesign in 2020.Didn't 718 just come out two years ago? Are.we talking about.a refresh in 2020 or a redesign? Is this a rumour or definite plan?
I don't think it is that easy. Who would pay the them to be installed? Where would the electricity come from? I also think you'd need around 30-40 especially at some of the larger tracks. I think if electric cars really take off, then it will happen. But not in the next 10 years. So 2020 718s will still be ICE in my opinion.If anything putting electric chargers at a track is trivial. If you think about it, having an electric car charger system on roads is a huge endeavor (look at Tesla's charger system, they have thousands of locations), but there are few tracks where lots of new porsches drive. They could get away with 20 fast charging stations at tracks around the US, that's a non-problem.
Porsche cycle: New Model - Refresh - New Model, etc.Didn't 718 just come out two years ago? Are.we talking about.a refresh in 2020 or a redesign? Is this a rumour or definite plan?
