The 918 Spyder Concept

Porsche has announced that it is proceeding with development of the 918 Spyder, which was showcased in concept form at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.

With the 918 Spyder concept, Porsche aimed to combine high-performance with an efficient powertrain, and the production model will use plug-in hybrid technology to achieve that.

The concept features a 500bhp petrol V8 engine which is paired to two electric motors with 109bhp each.

Despite the car’s total power output of 718bhp, Porsche claims that the 918 Spyder concept can deliver fuel efficiency of three litres per 100km. Porsche has also announced that it will soon launch the 2011 Cayenne S Hybrid which delivers 23 percent higher fuel efficiency compared to the outgoing 2010 Cayenne S.

    Form following function…Count on Ferdinand’s men to do it right.
    Its worth mentioning, the 918 can do 25kms on electric charge alone and produces a staggering 147bhp/ltr which belittles the 458 Italia’s 127bhp/ltr.
    They do ads pretty well too…
    3.2 million words in the English language and none can describe a Porsche.
    Porsche. There is no substitute.
