To say that the Porsche 918 Spyder is just another supercar is pretty inaccurate. For one, it’s the most powerful vehicle Porsche has ever built. And another thing: it’s combination of power, speed, fuel economy and low emissions is nearly unrivaled, so much so that even with 918 models priced at over $800,000 a piece, it’s already nearly sold out.
Speaking of sold out, a lot of the customers that paid for the 918 Spyder appear to reside here in the U.S. That’s why Porsche has said that America will receive the biggest allotment of 918 Spyders than any other country with up to 190 models headed our way.
That probably explains why Porsche has taken to great lengths to promote the 918 Spyder in the U.S. Numerous promotional events held in the United States over the past two years, and soon enough, a lot of these actual supercars will be calling the Land of the Free their home.

This is the crown jewel of Porsche’s lineup. Those are big words considering that the German automaker already has the 911 in its stable.
But the 918 Spyder is a completely different animal, especially when you consider that its powertrain, when taken all together, can produce 800 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque, which is good enough to allow it to hit 60 mph in just 3 seconds with a top speed of 202 mph.
Get ready, fellas. The 918 Spyder is coming. And it’s coming soon.
