Production Version Porsche 918 Spyder Revealed in Chinese Patents
Until now, we have seen lots of images of the upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder, but all of them were images of the prototype versions. Today, however, the first leaked images of the production version have dripped their way on the internet via the leak-happy Chinese patent office.
As no surprise, the production version looks pretty similar to the concept versions, but it has finally received its door handles, mirrors, indicator lights, seat belts, a slightly different front bumper and redesigned air intakes in the front bumper. Also, the exhaust pipes are now placed in the right position and not on the car’s side as in the concept versions.
Under the hood, the 918 Spyder will combine a 4.6-liter V-8 engine delivering a total of 570 horsepower with an electric motor that adds an extra 200 horsepower.
The production version will debut in September 2013 and will be priced at about $1 million.
