Porsche 918: Mean and Green and 887 HP

Oct 18, 2013

Some interesting numbers have surfaced surrounding Porsche’s leading-edge supercar including 2.9-second 0-60 mph and a 199-mph top speed. Production will be limited to 918 units, assembly will commence on 9-18 (September 18, 2013), and finally 845,000 is the number of dollars you’ll need to buy one.

The main source of propulsion is the 4.6L V8 that produces 608 hp. The V8 is coupled with the 154hp hybrid module. Since the 918 Spyder is designed as a parallel hybrid like the current hybrid models from Porsche, it can be powered at the rear axle either individually by the combustion engine or electric motor or via both units jointly. The 918 Spyder will act as the gene pool for the Porsche sports cars of the future.
