“While a car of this caliber would seem tricky, the ease of handling is astonishing. Fantastic steering response, a long wheelbase, a rear steering system, and numerous other elements help it deliver confidence similar to that of the current Porsches, but at a level of speed that makes it difficult for your brain to compute. It’s not that the 918 feels slow, but that it doesn’t promote any need for concern about the speeds it reaches.” – Motortrend
The 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder is a car unlike any other. This model gets 887 horsepower, reaching top speeds of 211 miles per hour. The 918 can get from 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and offers drivers a torque power of 940 lbs per sq ft. As the leader in its class for hybrid technology, the 4.6 liter V-8 is accompanied by a 156 HP electric motor, coupled with a 6.8 kw/hr battery. This combination allows the Porsche 918 Spyder to reach up to 71 Miles Per Gallon. You read that right; seventy-one.
The interior of this car is a state-of-the-art as what’s under the hood. LED panels illuminate the dashboard, lighting up options and features like the screen of the smartphone in your pocket.
The 918 Spyder is designed as a race car, designed by teams of engineers who have years of experience and knowledge from working with Les Mans, as well as Porsche, this Spyder embodies all that is great about the racing traditions we know around the world today. The same ideas that have made Porsche so successful for the past 50 years, these ideas are all rolled up in the new 918, making it the ideal car to model for future generations of the Porsche sports and racing lines.
