After three years in development (first shown as a concept in March 2010), Porsche launched the future of the sports car. The production of the mid-engine plug-in hybrid German hypercar began on September 2013.

The Porsche 918 Spyder embodies the traditional Porsche virtue and contains the genetic blueprint for the future, a worthy successor to the vaunted Carrera GT supercar: futuristic and aggressive.

Porsche 918 Spyder

Performance

Definitely the incredible performance of the supercar blows our minds. The designers mainly aimed to improve acceleration, at least it can be inferred that reaching the 100 km/h in the final version is 0.2 seconds shorter than the previous prototype: the new time is 2.6 seconds. The hybrid motorization of Porsche 918 is elaborate and made of a racecar-derived 4.6-liter, 608hp central V8 linked with two electric engines at the rear and front and combines a four-wheel-drive system – driving just the front wheels up to 146 mph (the rear motor produces 154hp). The two electric engines are fueled by a 6.8-kWh lithium-ion battery. The combined output of the system is about 880-890 hp.

Drivers can change between front-wheel, rear-wheel, and all-wheel drive. Adaptive suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes, electromechanical steering, and a multi-functional 7-speed PDK automated manual transmission offer a driving experience like no other. The five available drive modes you can pick cruising around the roads in this sensational automobile: E-Power, Hybrid, Sport Hybrid, Race Hybrid, and Hot Lap. A 7-speed gearbox drives power to the rear wheels, meaning high-speed drifting is very possible, you will not be disappointed.

Price

Porsche produced just 918 units of Spyder, had a starting price of $845,000 in the United States where the optional Weissach Package commanded a massive premium of $85,000 for a grand total of $930,000. Nowadays a used Porsche 918 Spyder is listed for $1.2-2.0 million but it’s worth every bucks. Generally speaking the Spyder seems like the best deal of its kind.
