Porsche 918 Spyder gets its own websiteWed, 26 Jun 2013
The Porsche 918 Spyder (pictured) now has its very own website
It’s more than two years since the Porsche 918 Spider went on sale, but it’s now getting close to arriving in Porsche showrooms so Porsche has created a new microsite dedicated to all things 918. Since it went on sale, the 918 Spyder has been developed further and the production 918 will come with 4WD courtesy of its electric motors – one delivering 154hp (rear) and the other 127hp (front) – which, combined with 608hp from its 4.6 litre V8, promises 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds (and 7 seconds on just the electric motors) and on to 211mph.
The new 91 microsite reveals Porsche’s self-imposed challenge was to beat the Carrera GT by at least 10 seconds on the Nurburgring, and there’s video of the 918 out playing at the Nurburgring, as well as plenty of photos and detail on exactly what the 918 offers.
That includes details of the 918′s high-revving V8, it’s top exit tail pipes, PDK gearbox, the electric motors that can get the 918 to 93mph all on their own, the lithium-ion batteries and the four driving modes – E-Power, Hybrid, Sport Hybrid and Race Hybrid plus a Hot Lap configuration button.
There’s details on the chassis, the testing and development, design (inside and out). the Weissach Package and much, much more.
A perfect time waster for Porsche anoraks.
