Porsche 918 Spyder Rendering Released
Now, TeamSpeed.com comes to raise our level of anticipation by releasing this stunning rendering of the vehicle. We can see a lot of goodies, such as the carbon ceramic brakes, but also features that are less spectacular than the ones seen on the concept - the tailpipes are no longer placed on the side, having been moved to a conventional rear position.
We’ll remind you how Porsche described the concept: “The highly-innovative Porsche 918 Spyder concept car combines Porsche's Intelligent Performance philosophy with the high-technology from motorsport, with classic but modern design to make a truly convincing statement.Offering a unique combination of extremely low fuel consumption, supreme performance and long electric range, the Porsche 918 Spyder concept represents an essential milestone in Porsche's strategy on the way to genuine electric-mobility.”
The 918 Spyder concept promises to emit just 70 grams of CO2 per kilometer and return a fuel consumption of 3 liters per 100 km (78 mpg0, while needing only 3.2 seconds to complete the o to 62 mph sprint and allowing the driver to play up to 320 km/h (198 mph). Let’s not forget that the hypercar also promises a Nurburgring laptime of less than 7:30 minutes.
