Spy Shots: Porsche 918 Spyder reveals its interior
It’s only been a few days since we brought out a series of spy shots of the upcoming 918 Spyder wearing a very cool Martini Racing livery, and today it’s time for another testing session. Judging by the photos, this prototype was testing somewhere in Spain, and lucky for us, our spy photographers were able to take some pretty cool images of the interior, as well as more shots of the cool "Martini Hippie" livery previously used in the 917 race cars.
The first thing we noticed is the enormous center console that seems to be inspired by the console found in the Carrera GT, but it also gets a large LCD screen in the middle. A few dials and control interfaces are visible below the screen, but it’s clear that the large screen will be a touch screen.
Porsche has tried to keep everything camouflaged, but it’s also obvious there will be plenty of carbon fiber used for the upcoming supercar’s interior. Spy shots also reveal a red indicator that shows what gear the car is in and a few gauges that help the driver be in control of his vehicle. The sports seats also reveal the "918 Spyder" logo stitched into the headrest, but we bet the final product will look completely different. The tachometer appears to have a 9000rpm redline, and the word "Charge" also appears on it, while aluminum paddles complete the look.
As a reminder, the 918 Spyder will be powered by a 570 HP 4.7 liter V8 engine combined with two electric motors. The front motor is rated at 107 HP and the rear motor at 121 HP. With nearly 800 HP, the supercar will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and will go up to a top speed of over 200mph.
