[VIDEO] Porsche 918 Spyder spotted at Cars & Coffee Irvine
A brand new blue-finished Porsche 918 Spyder has been recently spotted at Cars & Coffee Irvine and the German hybrid supercar has managed to attract quite a crowd.
The Porsche 918 Spyder is being placed into the spotlights once again, after it has made its public debut 6 months ago, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, in its final production form, this time with the hybrid supercar making an appearance at Cars & Coffee Irvine.

The brand new Porsche 918 Spyder will be produced in 918 units and offered with a mid-engine and an all-wheel drive layout.

The total output produced stands at 887 HP (661 kW) and 1,275 Nm (940 lb-ft) of torque, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint made in 2.6 seconds and for a top speed of 345 km/h (214 mph).
