After nearly three years of speculation, Porsche has announced official U.S. pricing for its upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid supercar. The Porsche 918 Spyder bowed in concept form at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and could make its production debut at the 2013 edition of the annual show.
According to Porsche prices report, the 2014 Porsche 918 price will be $845,000. And that’s just for the base model. Stepping up to the Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach Package will set you back $929,000.
Although Porsche has yet to confirm details of the Porsche 918 Spyder, the hybrid supercar is expected to make use of a 4.6L V8 mated to a pair of electric motors. On its own the gas engine should be good for 580 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque, with the electric motors boosting the car’s total output to 795 horsepower and 569 lb-ft of torque. The Porsche 918 Spyder is expected to deliver an equally impressive 78mpg.
The Weissach Package doesn’t add any more power, but it does improve the car’s overall performance thanks to a 77 pound weight reduction and an improved braking system. Porsche says the Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach Package is 8 seconds faster around the Nurburgring than the standard car.
The 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder is capable of hitting 60 mph from a stop in about three seconds, continuing on to a top speed of over 200 mph. Power from the V8 is transmitted to the rear wheels via a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox while power from the electric motors is controlled by computer and sent directly to the front wheels.
The Porsche 918 Spyder has several drive modes, offering different levels of performance and efficiency. E-Drive minimizes fuel consumption by using the batteries to power the car for up to 16 miles. Hybrid mode uses both electric and gas power for a blend of efficiency and longer range. Sport Hybrid adds torque vectoring for more performance-oriented driving. And, lastly, Race Hybrid maximizes both gas and electric output, without regard for efficiency.
Porsche will reportedly build just 918 examples of the hybrid sports car, but those customers will have quite the range of options. A previously leaked brochure, which appeared on Team Speed, revealed that the 918 will be available in at least 12 different colors as well as two special graphics packages.
In a sudden announcement that caught Catholics around the world off guard, Pope Benedict XVI said he will resign at the end of February, becoming the first pontiff to step down in nearly 600 years.
In a meeting with Sales Manager Pope Benedict XVI revealed that it’s not easy to choose between new Porsche 911 and Porsche Panamera. Pope noticed that is not a money issue, because porsche prices for both models are practically the same.
Later, during a visit in Porsche center Riga, Pope Benedict XVI told that owning a Porsche is an ancient dream for him, but his position does not allow it in the past.
Porsche dealer employee used the unique opportunity to ask what Pope thinks about speeding to which Benedikt XVI replied that in principle he is against the fast driving, but speeding with Porsche is little different and God knows it.
Let’s wish Pope Benedict XVI good health and courage to make the right choice between all Porsche models.
Porsche is celebrating 50 years of its famous Porsche 911 model with a host of events throughout the year.
Starting with the “Retro Classics” automobile show, taking place between the 7th and 10th of March, Porsche will exhibit four special models at its Museum in Stuttgart: an early-model Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe, a Porsche 911 Cabriolet study from 1981, a 1997 street version Porsche 911 GT1 and the pre-series Type 754 T7.
The company is also sending an authentic 1967 Porsche 911 model on a world tour; this vintage Porsche 911 will travel to five continents where it will be shown in places like Pebble Beach, Paris and Goodwood.
Later this year, the Porsche Museum will host a special exhibition featuring the history and development of the 911. Called ”50 years of the Porsche 911“, the event will run between June 4 and September 29.
Porsche has built 820,000 911s since the model’s launch in 1963; the model is a benchmark for all other sports cars and the central point of reference for all other Porsche series, according to the German brand.
It is worth noting that the 911 was first introduced as the Porsche 901 at the IAA International Automotive Show in September 1963, but the German company had to rename it the “911″ after a legal dispute with Peugeot.
