The Porsche 918 Spyder concept is making its latest tests, most recently when we consider appearance, to take greater driving pleasure, efficiency and incredible engine performance. Hit the market in late September 2013 for their ‘exclusive’ buyers can enjoy it as soon as possible.
The Porsche 918 Spyder will be the first Porsche -powered plug-in hybrid, but is the fourth car from the Stuttgart firm with hybrid technology when you consider the Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid, Porsche GT3 R Hybrid and Hybrid Porsche Panamera.
In the case of the 918 Spyder, its propulsion system combines a combustion engine 4.6 liter V8 with 570 horses, an electric front axle 80 kW, the same type in the transmission (90 kW). The set comes to offering a superior power to 770 hp, a top speed that exceeds 325 km/h and a change from 0 to 100 under three seconds … like the Lamborghini Aventador. It also consumes less than three liters per 100 km and emits less than 70 g of CO2 per kilometer.
Electric motors have a lithium battery with an autonomy of 25 km and a top speed of 150 km/h. In addition to charging to the grid, are recharged through a system of energy recovery. And to ensure good performance, the Porsche 918 Spyder concept has four cooling systems for engines, transmission and battery.
As for the exterior, you can see the photos remind 917 competition. In addition, the new 918 Spyder will wear a body monocoque carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). One of the most striking things are the outputs of the exhaust pipes that lie just behind the heads of the two occupants. The two-piece Targa roof and aesthetics of this ‘sportcar’ warns is already here over from the Carrera GT.
