After we have shown you Jay Leno take the Porsche 918 Spyder for a spin at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, view time has come for another famous petrol head to get behind the wheel in the impressive German supercar. We’re talking about Patrick Dempsey, the American actor and race car driver, who is best known for his role in Grey’s Anatomy, as neurosurgeon Dr. Derek Shepard. Dempsey owns a GT3 RS so it’s no surprise that he now favors the pre-production 918 Spyder.
The Porsche 918 Spyder seen at Pebble Beach is a pre-production version, as the final variant will be officially presented to the public next month, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, in a premiere. The supercar will be powered by a 4.6 liter V8 engine, producing just over 600 HP, helped by two electric motors, each of them generating 150 HP. The total output produced by the hybrid powertrain will stand at approximately 885 HP, which will allow the supercar to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and to reach a top speed of 210 mph.
