Porsche has finally unveiled the production version of the 918 Spyder here at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Later today we will give you guys some fresh photos from the show but for now, let’s take a look at the specs. We have a mid-mounted dry-sump-lubricated 4.6-liter V8 engine developing 608 hp combined with three electric motors, which produce 268 hp.
The total amount of power delivered by the 918 Spyder is 887 hp. Yes, less than its main rivals, the McLaren P1 (903 hp) and the Ferrari Laferrari (949 hp). Also, it is a little bit cheaper, as it starts at $845,000, while the other rival supercars start at over $1 million.
Despite the “small” price, the Porsche 918 Spyder has some impressive performance figures: 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds, 7.7 seconds from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) and 22 seconds to hit 300 km/h or 186 mph. As we know, the 918 Spyder can act as an electric car for almost 20 miles (36 km) at speeds of up to 93 mph or 157 km/h. [source: Porsche]
