Ready, Set Go! Its official since the green light has been given for development of the Porsche 918 Spyder. Going green has never looked so luxurious and ultra sleek with high class velocity. This concept version of an ultra-high-performance mid-engined sports car with plug-in hybrid technology made its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and at Auto China in Bejing, hitting headlines worldwide. Michael Macht, President and Chairman of the Board of Management of Porsche AG: Production of the 918 Spyder in a limited series proves that we are taking the right approach with Porsche Intelligent Performance featuring the combination of supreme performance and efficient drivetrain concepts.
The Concept Study of the 918 Spyder allows CO2emissions of just 70 g/km, corresponding to fuel consumption of 3.0 liter/100 km (94.1 mpg imp) in the New European Driving Cycle, on the one hand, and the performance of a super-sports car, on the other. This extremely efficient drive train technology forms a symbiosis in the 918 Spyder with truly outstanding design and high-tech motorsport achievements. Further details of the 918 Spyder will be released in the months to come.
