Porsche has let loose more official details on the long awaited 918 Spyder and its impressive Hybrid drive system. The car uses technology taken straight from their racing division including a monocoque load-bearing structure made of carbon-fibre reinforced polymer for stiffness and it contributes to the car's speedy, athletic build. The car will feature five driving modes from a purely electric "E-Power" mode that'll get you up to 18 miles on a battery power alone to Race Hybrid mode that unleashes the full performance potential of the 918. All that power comes from a 4.6L, 608 hp V8 and a hybrid module that contains a 115 kW electric motor. Other details include a plug-in charging system, a new cockpit design that features a multi-touch control panel, and a optional Weissach performance package that adds special colorways and designs based on historic Porsche race cars and visible carbon components, magnesium wheels, an optional film-coating instead of paint, six-point seat belts, and a reduction in gross weight.
