Porsche 918 Spyder 2013 official reveal promo
The Porsche 918 Spyder is a mid-engined sports plug-in hybrid designed by Porsche and first shown as a concept at the 80th Geneva Motor Show in March 2010. The Spyder is powered by a 4.6 litre V8 engine, developing 608 horsepower (453 kW), with two electric motors delivering an additional 279 horsepower (208 kW) for a combined output of 887 horsepower (661 kW).
It is the second plug-in hybrid car from Porsche, after the 2014 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid. The production version was unveiled at the September 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The plug-in hybrid is a limited edition supercar, and Porsche plans to manufacture 918 units as a 2014 model year. Production began on September 18, 2013, with deliveries scheduled to begin in December 2013. The starting price is US$845,000.
Porsche unveiled the RSR racing variant of the 918 at the 2011 North American International Auto Show, which combines hybrid technology first used in the 997 GT3 R Hybrid, with styling from the 918 Spyder.
