The new Porsche 918 Spyder would have been displayed at the final production lap in Frankfurt. But it is revealed before the actual time of showcase.
Although it is not a huge car but it is indeed the widest car the company ever made. The main features are of the Carrera GT but 918 have more space for the driver and enough leg space for the passengers. It also sports a four wheel power steering, hybrid battery and a PDK in place of a manual box.
The Porsche 918 Spyder is packed thickly with features. It has a 4.6 liter V8 that gives 608bhp or 132bhp/ liter that can accelerate at a speed of 9150. It is supported by an electric motor of 149bhp which rides through the seven speed PDK gear box to the wheels at the back. An electric motor aids at the front of 129bhp, so all combined it is 887bhp. The front wheels are equipped with revving option to stop the car while accelerating.
The two reasons for the electric drive to help the sports car:
1. The four wheel traction
2. It engages the torque hole
As it is a plug-in hybrid, it can go up to 20 miles without having to run the engine at all.
