Porsche has displayed 911 GT3 R hybrid at the Geneva Motor Show 2010. The highlight of his eco-drive is a flywheel that stores energy, mounted instead of batteries.
By Jan Horn A Porsche high speeds loves living from touring in the red. The boxer engine in a 911 at the limit just feels really comfortable, then screams already well beyond the 7000 mark. Lovely! But this maximum speed is nothing if a GT3 R Hybrid only comes once in full swing. Okay, it’s not the six of the Endurance racing car, which goes about it so ludicrously high – but here lies the main module of Porsche’s new hybrid approach to the stuff: the flywheel storage.
It is an electric motor-generator unit, which consists of a magnetized rotor and consists of a plastic plunger. To protect against rupture of the extremely fast circular rotor is still tightly in a plastic sleeve carbon-wrapped. This high-tech gyroscope in the format of a washing machine drum begins with the brakes on the energy produced there later than from electric power again. The maximum “load”, which is in this mass momentum, at least six to eight seconds long enough for 162 bhp, which act on two electric motors at the front axle.
