As you may know already, Porsche is planning to roll out the limited edition 918 Spyder and we will definitely see this beauty in Germany, at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. What we don’t know is that the 918 Spyder came in well above budget and needed more brainpower over a longer time period that originally allocated.
Due to these problems, Porsche might offer a new sports car dubbed 984, which will use a stretched and reinforced version of the carbon fiber cradle used by the 918. What’s more interesting is that the new car will keep the B8 engine used by the 918 Spyder, will be rear-wheel drive and will offer room for four persons and… two extra doors!
Sounds pretty crazy, but it appears that Porsche will built the new car and will offer it for approximately 350,000 euros, half of the 918 Spyder price. The car could be an alternative to the Porsche Panamera Turbo S, but with better performances.
