  1. We all know the Porsche 918 Spyder has nearly 900 horses and will do almost 345km/h flat out. So how does that look like actually? Sport Auto's Christian Gebhardtcan answer that with the video below... http://dai.ly/x21r3vt_0-333-km-h-porsche-918-spyder-acceleration-launch-control-test-sport-auto_auto Note how fast 200km/h flash past and I must say the sound it produces at 9000rpm, is brilliant!
  2. Besides the Ferrari Enzo 2.0 and the recently unveiled McLaren P1, the other highly anticipated hybrid supercar must be Porsche's 918 Spyder. At the age of technology and the internet, nothing can be kept a secret. The latest victim of leaked material is Stuggart based Porsche. The 918 pieces limited - 918 Spyder images from a product brochure has been leaked onto the web. This comes a month after footage from a private event in New York was leaked. The leaked brochure provides us a clear(er) picture on the production ready 918 Spyder that has often been concealed. With refrence to the brochure, the 918 can decked out in iconic Martini or Salzburg racing livery besides ten other body colours. While the base Spyder can already cost a fraction of many's fortune, is web sources are to be believed, Porsche will (be pleased) to announce that for just $65,000 (S$79,637) you have an option to finish your car in a special Liquid Metal Grey or Liquid Metal Blue paint job. With reference to the image, the Spyder

    Porsche

    [extract] If five years ago, someone said that Porsche would be the first major auto manufacturer to use electric drive technology in each of its models, people might think the person might be joking or just crazy. Fast forward to today and that particular statement is getting real close to being true. Almost every model in Porsche

    Changes for Porsche

    [extract] Almost a year ago, Porsche revealed to the world their next supercar which is the 918 Spyder. It will be a limited production model as Porsche intends to build only 918 units. The car will boast a V8 hybrid engine which generates around 718bhp with an exceptional fuel consumption of 78mpg. Porsche will unveil a production unit of the 918 Spyder at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show and now, Porsche has officially revealed that there will be changes to the 918 Spyder which we can expect to see by late 2013 or early 2014. One of the key changes to the car is the engine size. The V8 engine will remain but the engine
  6. - the Porsche 918 Spyder Concept. A 718ps all wheel drive hybrid supercar. Recently we have read or heard that Proton has come up with a hybrid/electric/something green prototype of a car that basically resembles a box on wheels. The designed by Italdesign-Giugiaro is supposedly an achievement in how a car should be packaged. It looks like either an elongated SMART Fortwo or a shortened Mercedes A-class. So the actual innovative thing is that the Proton concept EMAS is that its a environmentally friendly car made by a company that is a few decades old instead of one which is a hundred or so years old. A milestone for quite a young company I suppose. - A Proton, but not as we know it We then also found out recently that Ferrari has showcased its hybrid 599 Hy-KERS concept car. This green prancing horse has an electric motor giving a small boost in power but is negated by the extra weight it has to carry, due to the batteries. Like the KERS system in Formula 1, the system allows for brake energy regeneration. They say it will run fully on electricity at low speed , but imagine crawling through traffic in a silent Ferrari, or going to those hip and happening nightspots in total silence or going through a tunnel in a Ferrari that does not make any sort of noise. Of course Ferrari has stated that they will never, ever build a totally electric Ferrari so you still have that v8 or v12 for aural thrills. But you just somehow think that most car companies usually eat their words at one time or another. Especially when at one time I remember reading Luca De Montezemolo stating that Ferrari will not build more than 9,000 units per year. And now they're crossing 10,000. - A Ferrari hybrid that is green, in colour Now Porsche has joined the hybrid band wagon with the 918 Spyder Concept. A hybrid that can do 0-100km/h in 3.2seconds, do the Nurbergring in under 7minutes 30 seconds and only use 3liters of petrol every 100km if you're not doing a Banzai lap, that is. It has 718 combined PS of which two electric motors, one front and one rear make a total of 218ps. The supposedly extremely high 9,200rpm redline 500ps V8 driving the rear wheels is the baby which I like. In a nutshell, this is the Porsche Carrera GT in Four Wheel Drive hybrid form. The Porsche is built on a modular monocoque bodyshell made of carbon reinforced plastic as well as magnesium and aluminum. The result is a pretty svelte 1,490kg, despite having to carry the hybrid system. The rear wheels are driven by the V8 and an electric motor through a 7-speed Porsche PDK DSG transmission, while the front axle
