Porsche 918 Spyder, new details released image

The German based automaker Porsche has recently released more details on the upcoming 918 Spyder supercar.

The Porsche product manager, James Eastwood, has recently spoken with the guys at Car Magazine, and said that the output of the 918 Spyder will not be increased in order to match the one of the LaFerrari and the P1. The supercar will weight approximately 1,700 kg (3,747 lbs) with fuel and fluids included, and the model will be offered with an optional Weissach package which will lower the weight by 50 kg (110 lbs). The company’s official is certain that most customers will order the weight reduction package.

According to James Eastwood, the new Porsche 918 Spyder will get a four-wheel steering system and this has been actually developed for the 918 Spyder and later implemented on the new 911 GT3. Eastwood believes the company will have no problems in selling all 918 units of the supercar. Additional details on the Porsche 918 Spyder remain unknown for the moment and will probably be announced during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, when the model will be unveiled. The 918 Spyder will rival the Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren P1.
