Porsche 918 Spyder Models and 918 Spyder History

A limited-production hypercar developed by Porsche with a new, modern approach towards high-performance, the 210-mile per hour 918 Spyder was among the most vibrant examples of a hybrid vehicle when first produced in late 2013. A combination of a direct-injected 4.6-liter V-8 gasoline engine as well as two electric motors (one at the front axle and the other at the rear axle), the Porsche 918 Spyder operated as a plug-in hybrid. With power stored in a lithium-ion battery pack, the supercar could be driven up to 19 miles on electricity alone. When the gasoline engine and electric motors functioned in unison, the supercar boasted a combined system output of 887 horsepower. Through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission combined with an all-wheel drive system, the 918 Spyder can rush to a top speed of 214 miles per hour when equipped with the Weissach Package consisting mainly of a 90-pound weight reduction. Heavily bred from Porsche's motorsport expertise, the plug-hybrid 918 Porsche Spyder incorporated the extensive carbon fiber construction, active aerodynamics and high-performance braking. Ending production on June 19th of 2015, only 918 examples of the Porsche 918 Spyder were delivered with 294 vehicles sold to customers in the United States.
