Porsche first announced its Porsche 918 Spyder Sport Car as a concept back in 2010, and since recently we have heard that the company has been working on the production of the vehicle over the past few years and now Porsche has finally decided to announce the final production version of the hybrid supercar.
The Porsche 918 Spyder will be launched in 2015, and it features an 887HP V8 engine combined with an electric engine, it has a 0-60 time of 2.8 seconds and can travel for up to 18 miles on the electric engine alone. The 918 Spyder prototype was therefore approximately 20 seconds quicker than the Porsche Carrera GT.
As a plug-in hybrid vehicle, it systematically combines the dynamic performance of a racing machine with low fuel consumption. To sum it up: maximum driving fun with minimal fuel consumption. The Porsche 918 Spyder will go on sale next year, and will retail for a cool $845,000, you can find out more details over at Porsche.
