The 911 is one of the most popular models in Porsche’s lineup and was always highly appreciated for its top notch performances and the classy design language.
The vehicle was also constantly attacked by various tuners who spent a lot of time developing various body kits or engine tweaks to raise its performances even more.
However, not many tuners have dared to make any radical changes under the hood and most of them were limited to ECU upgrades. Though, one of the tuners was bold enough to come up with a hybrid version of the Porsche 911 and name it the Genevart Celsius.
For the moment, we didn’t have the chance to see it in flesh and bones, as the Celsius will make its big debut next year at the 2013 Geneva Auto Salon. On the other hand, Genevart released a lot of specs and pictures, so we can make a pretty clear image about their new beast.
The most important modification is represented by the addition of two electric motors mounted to each of the rear wheels. These motors are combined with a flat six engine, the entire hybrid system offering a total power output of 900 horsepower.
Swiss company, Genevart, is preparing a big surprise for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show: a new supercar called Celcius that mixes design elements from the 918 Spyder with the Carrera GT . The model is based on a Porsche 997 Turbo and will feature two KERS units for each of the front wheels. Its total output will be somewhere in the 960 HP area - just enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds.
The Celcius will feature a four-wheel drive system, an electronic sequential gearbox, and a set of carbon ceramic brake discs. Genevart’s new model will also be offered with full carbon fiber panels and in both coupe and spyder versions.
Genevart will unveil the first images of the car in August 2012, while the first on road demonstration will be made at the Top Marques Monaco Auto Salon in April 2013. The upcoming supercar will also take part in a track day at the famous Nurburgring track in June 2013. Sales will begin in September 2013 with production limited to only 10 units per year.
