Porsche 918 Spyder is almost sold out

Article by Christian A., on October 20, 2014

Porsche introduced the 918 Spyder back in 2013 and promised that it will only build 918 units, each starting at $845,000 or at $929,000 when equipped with the Weissach Package. Despite the impressive price tag, the German supercar is almost sold out and according to Andre Oosthuizen, vice president of marketing for Porsche Cars North America, planned production is sold out through early April.

Porsche also announced that the production of the 918 Syder plug-in hybrid supercar will end in July, which means that those who wanted to buy it they better hurry up in order to get one. What’s more interesting is that around 30 units were delivered globally so far and according to Automotive News.

Meanwhile, few units were recalled last summer due to a rear-axle problem. For those who don’t know, the 918 Spyder is powered by a 4.6-liter V8 engine that produces 608 hp. The engine is coupled to a hybrid model that consists of a 115 kW electric motor and a decoupler that serves a connection with the combustion engine.

In addition, the engine is bolted to a seven-speed PDK transmission, completely redesigned for this supercar. With a total output of 887 hp (652 kW) at 8,500 rpm, the 918 Spyder accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.6 seconds, while top speed is 345 km/h (214 mph). Fuel consumption is just 3.1 l/100 km (3.0 l/100 km when equipped with the Weissach Package) or 67 MPGe.
