Porsche 918 Spyder – A REAL Game Changer
Pure. Energy. This is how the marketing folk at Porsche simply describe the fantastical motor car that is the Porsche 918 Spyder. A brutal and mesmeric combination of distinctively Porsche hybrid fused with ultra-intelligent technology. In our opinion this car, perhaps even more so than the iconic Bugatti Veyron, moves us forward with greater confidence, and optimism into the world of future motoring.
The Porsche 918 Spyder represents an entirely new look at the supercar. It perhaps, truly heralds the future of the sports car, one that combines staggering levels of performance with cleaner emissions. First, let’s start with the numbers:
- Price: (from) £715,000
- 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds
- 0-124mph in 7.2 seconds
- 186mph in less than 20 seconds
- Top speed of 214mph
With the above statistics you would probably consider the Porsche 918 Spyder to be real beast to handle. Not so. This is one road going hyper car which is NOT intimidating to drive, yet is most definitely spectacularly special to experience whichever mode you drive in.
In addition, with competition as stiff as the McLaren P1 and the LaFerrari you could be thinking that Porsche has got it’s work cut out to make the 918 stick. But the boffins from Stuttgart strongly believe the 918 is a much more complete car, thanks to a true hybrid petrol-electric drivetrain and greater concessions to everyday road use. Would you believe – it even has cupholders! We’re thinking nice second-hand sales reps car!!
