Porsche 918 Spyder | More Details



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.
