Porsche 918 Spyder is even faster, beats its benchmark values

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 18, 2013

Although the first specs of the Porsche 918 Spyder were already impressive, the German manufacturer announced today that its hybrid super sportscar is even faster. Fitted with the weight-optimised Weissach package, the Porsche 918 Spyder is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.6 seconds (-0.2 seconds), to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 7.2 seconds (-0.5 seconds) and 300 km/h (186 km/h) in 19.9 seconds (-2.1 seconds).

As you may know already, two electric motors on the front and rear axle power the 918 Spyder. These motors push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.2 seconds, without producing any emissions. With the Weissach package fitted, the time is reduced to 6.1 seconds.

Moreover, the Porsche 918 Spyder featuring the Weissach package lapped the Nurburgring racetrack in 6:57 minutes. Despite its impressive performances, the 918 Spyder is certified to efficiency class A+.

With the Weissach package fitted, the vehicle has a NEDC fuel consumption amounts to 3.0 l/100 km (3.1 l/100 km without the Weissach package). CO2 emissions are only 70 g/km (72 g/km without the Weissach package). The level of energy consumption was determined to be 12.7 kWh/100 km during the approval cycle.
