The Stuttgart manufacturer surprised everyone by offering this hybrid version designed around two 218 hp electric motors and one 500 hp V8 3.4 L. This rounded version somewhat recalls the 918 from the 1970’s. It can be used in 4 drive modes, from 100% electric over a distance of 25km, to “Race Hybrid” mode combining the three motors for a total power of 700 hp. The manufacturer has not yet indicated when it might be on sale.

The Porsche 918 Spyder is exhibited with Michelin Pilot Sport tyres.
