Porsche 918 Spyder: Some new pics

by Alex

The Porsche 918 Spyder was there at the Pebble Beach Concours in all its glory and here are some excellent pictures of the supercar worth splashing all over the internet. These photo shots beautifully depicts the grandeur of the Porsche 918 Spyder that was put on display at a private Porsche event.

The auto experts and analysts have an opinion about the cost and time required to build this prototype. Industry experts believe, (with rumors too complementing this belief) that the Spyder, the prototype sports car, required over five months of rigorous hard work on part of engineers in addition to an investment of over $20 million to attain the shape that we now know it in. Perhaps this could be a potential hurdle in producing the car though experts also believe that it may be a small frizz in Porsche’s original plans and it is believed that, Porsche would fix it very soon for sure.

Similar to the concept edition of the super sports car, the production edition of the 918 Spyder is expected to feature an entire new carbon fiber shell. However, complying with the U.S. safety standards, the production edition of the 918 Spyder would come fitted out with an aluminum front end. On the inside, the Porsche already has a beautiful touch screen center console and camera rear view mirrors.

A V8 engine powers the Porsche 918 Spyder. This power plant churns out a maximal power that is in excess of 500 hp. The three electric motors deliver an overall power output of 218 hp. The power plant of 918 Spyder expels less than 70 grams CO2 every kilometer. The car has fuel efficiency with a consumption of mere 3.0 liters every 100 kilometers (i.e. over 94 mpg imp). The 918 Spyder can shoot from 0 mph to 60 mph sprint at a rocketing speed in lesser than 3.2 seconds. The maximum speed of the car is electronically limited and controlled to 198 mph. The Nordschleife of Nürburgring track can be concluded in the lap time, by the 918 Spyder, in a mere seven minutes and 20 seconds. This lap time of Spyder is better and faster as compared with even the Porsche Carrera GT.
