Porsche has released some new details on the upcoming 918 Spyder, which is expected to make its public debut this autumn, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
According to the German based automaker, the Porsche 918 Spyder will be produced in a limited edition of just 918 units, which is way more than what Ferrari is offering for the LaFerrari or McLaren with the P1. The supercar will be priced at around 650,000 euros, but if you want one for yourself, you should pay 200,000 euros in advance in order to make it on the short list. The most important market for the 918 Spyder will be the United States.
As a quick reminder, the Porsche 918 Spyder will be powered by a 4.6 liter V8 petrol engine, mated to two electric motors. The total output produced will stand at 887 HP, which is way more than the originally announced figure of 770 HP. This will be enough to allow the hybrid supercar to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 340 km/h. A full electric mode will be eventually offered on the Porsche 918 Spyder, which will allow the supercar to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7 seconds and to reach a top speed of 150 km/h. The range will stand at 30 km.
