    The Nürburgring 24 hour race this year will see a true-green Porsche revving up its engine at the starting line. The automobile firm will have its 911 GT3 R Hybrid to represent at the race scheduled for the 25th of June. The 2011 Version 2.0 car is fuel-efficient and light yet extremely powerful, more than its predecessor. Using a 470HP 4.0-liter six-cylinder boxer engine at the rear and two electric motors driving the front wheels, this Porsche has 75 kilowatts (100HP) electric motors and weighs in at 1,300 kilograms (2,866 lbs).

    With so much power churning out of a hybrid system, we’re pretty sure the Porsche will leave the rest behind in a cloud of dust, not smoke, as it races to the finish line, 24 hours away.
