Porsche 918 Spyder: Full Pricing Details Leaked

When Porsche announced the initial details on their 918 Spyder, they reported a price tag of $845,000 for the US market, but a leaked document suggests that the car will actually be priced at 768,026 euro, or about $995,976 at the current exchange rates. That price is also only good for the stock car, adding any additional equipment will make it considerable higher.

Let’s take a look at the stock car, though. Its design was inspired by legendary racing cars such as the Porsche 917 Le Mans and the current Porsche RS Spyder. The exterior design is defined by striking rear hoods extending out of the headrests and retractable air intakes with a ram air function. The production version will also make intense use of carbon fiber and aluminum for improved crash safety. The model will be offered with a full carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) monocoque with unit carrier, fully adaptive aerodynamics, adaptive rear-axle steering and the upward-venting "top pipes" exhaust system. The interior gets sports bucket seats, a touch-sensitive surface for intuitive control of the car’s functions and three-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel.

In stock form, the Porsche 918 Spyder is spectacular, but then there are the available options that can turn this perfect hybrid sports car into a true work of art.

Hit the jump to see all of the available options, as well as get a good idea of how much extra cash you’ll be tempted to throw down.

Options Euro price US conversion
Weissach Package 71,400 euro $92,500
Car Foil 11,900 euro $15,500
Liquid Metal Paint 47,600 euro $62,000
Magnesium Wheels 29,750 euro $38,700
Six-Point-Harness 2,975 euro $3,900
Special German Leather 23,800 euro $30,800
Five-Piece Luggage Set 17,731 euro $23,000
Lift System 8,925 euro $11,500

So, what started out as a relatively affordable supercar - for those with a few million in their bank account, of course - ended being as expensive as a Bugatti Veyron, albeit more environmentally friendly.

well i guess debound is right. we are talking for the sake of the discussion. people who really buy this kind of cars don’t sit around and read discussions like this, they go, drive the car and buy it if they like it.

alex, the car is worth a lot of money. and there’s the thing of the exclusivity of it. if you have the money, you get it and prove that. if you don’t, then you don’t.

is this car really worth all that money?

i think tinur is right. it;s not like someone will spend the last money they have on hr car and not be able to afford something extra if they wanted to.

i don’t think those extras are such a problem. after all, whoever has 1 mil $ for the car, can afford the extra 277.900$ for all the extra features.

this is a super car for the super wealthy. and those extras make it even more exotic.
