Porsche 918 Spyder Approved For Production - Web Exclusive

PORSCHE 918 SPYDER APPROVED FOR PRODUCTION

Jul 28, 2010

A decision was taken today by the Porsche Supervisory Board to develop the 918 Spyder concept for a limited production road car. The development will take place at Porsche's Weissach facility and it will be manufactured at Zuffenhausen.

The radical mid-engined plug-in hybrid super-sports car concept defines Porsche Intelligent Performance philosophy with a powerful petrol/electric drivetrain offering CO2 emissions of just 70g/km. Reflecting the overwhelming response from the public and customers to the Concept Study, the Supervisory Board gave the Porsche Board of Management the mission to develop a production model based on the concept that made its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and at Auto China in Bejing.

The Concept Study of the 918 Spyder produced fuel consumption of 78.4mpg US (3.0 litres/100 km), combined with the performance of a super-sports car. The extremely efficient drivetrain technology is well suited to the 918 Spyder, given its outstanding design and the high-tech motorsport achievements for which Porsche is renowned. Further product details of the 918 Spyder will be released in the following months.
