After making its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the 918 Spyder Concept is on its way to the Museum of Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche AG at Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen where it will be displayed starting October 1 through 7, 2010.
The 918 Spyder is powered by a V8 engine delivering more than 500 hp and three electric motors with overall output of 218hp. The engine emits just 70 grams CO2 per kilometer and has a fuel consumption of just 3.0 liters/100 kilometers (94 mpg imp). Despite this the car’s performances are impressive: the sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just under 3.2 seconds, top speed of 198 mph, and a lap time on the Nordschleife of Nürburgring in less than 7:30 minutes, faster than even the Porsche Carrera GT.
Press release after the jump.
The Porsche 918 Spyder caused a global sensation on its debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show and Auto China in Beijing. This concept study will be exhibited for the first time in the Museum of Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche AG at Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, from October 1 through 7, 2010.
The Supervisory Board of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG decided only a few weeks ago to put this high performance, mid-engined sports car into production. The innovative plug-in hybrid drive of the Porsche 918 Spyder produces the on-the-road performance of a purebred super sports race car, but with maximum efficiency and minimum emissions at the same time.
The Porsche Museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 9 am to 6 pm. Museum admission is € 8 for adults, € 4 for concessions. Children under the age of 14 go free when accompanied by an adult.
