• Porsche Museum displays the 918 Spyder Concept Study

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

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.

This is impressive. I want to visit this museum if possible and personally, witness its grandeur.

I wonder if they already displayed the Porsche 911 here? The performance and styling of the later is kind of impressive! And I would say that it would be better than the 918!

I really don’t think that the car has an impressive performance. For a v8 technology , 500 hp output is kind of impressive. I guess, this car would become an iconic car.

Funny though, seeing the wheels into its weird appearance. I thought this one will be one of the greatest concept study from Porsche.

I like its metallic color; I’ve been wondering if how much fuel will be consumed because of its ’high speed’ performance.

I don’t think so i find the Porsche very unique! Actually, a car...I just forgot what car is it.. the concept was based on the Spyder, so it’s mean that the concept is exceptional!

Donkervoort cars are cool, sporting those old-school style, but expect more innovative specs and more powerful engines. D8 GT is already a nice
model. Looking forward to Donkervoort D8 GTO, sure it’s more super.

You are right, the wheels looks awkward. It should be more refined.

I hate the wheels...they don’t fit the rest of the design. If they make it to production, I bet many buyers swap them out.

yeah, that’s right we cannot deny the fact about the global sensation of the Porsche Spyder.

I’ll take the "standard" Carrera GT with its normally aspirated howling V-10.

918 is really a great car, a car that can switch to Hybrid, Normal fueled car and all electric!.
