How To Get a Hybrid Six-Pack: Porsche Testing 918 Spyder in Italy

Whenever a car such as the Porsche 918 Spyder is launched, the psychological shock caused by its monstrous spec comes with an interesting side effect.

The adjacent images show a six-pack of Porsch 918 Spyders being tested in Italy. Porsche has shown the car on multiple occasions, with the most recent one being the Geneva Motor Show. Despite this, it looks like the company is still setting up the final details.

Besides, with the extra weight of the hybrid system, it’s very important to offer the right feel to the vehicle.

In spite of this, we must not forget that there is a deadline here - Porsche was supposed to start customer deliveries last September.
