I know, where you are coming from (911-vroom), however when compared with a similar setup, additional torque from the motor indeed helps. The hybrid setup on the newer cars is in 4th Generation and the battery capacity and the way it gets charged from the engine power is all better optimised than previous generations.

eCVT is a very dull transmission with typical CVT rubber-band effect. Rubber band effect doesn't literally mean there is a rubber band inside the CVT box.

Absolutely, only when you press the accelerator very hard does that engine sound gets intrusive but you will hardly feel the old rubber-band effect.
