“New” Porsche Hybrid: The Semper Vivus

Posted by Stephen On Friday, February 25th, 2011

Ferdinand Porsche created the first petrol-electric hybrid in 1900, and this model has been lovingly recreated over a period of 4 years by the firm that bears his name in time for the Geneva show. Porsche will be showcasing some more modern hybrids there – such as the 918RSR and the Panamera S Hybrid.

So if you think that “Prius” means hybrid, and Toyota came up with this all on their own – think again. It may have taken a while for these early ideas to come to fruition, but it just goes to show that you can’t keep a great invention down!
