Porsche 918 Spyder is a limited-production mid-engine plug-in hybrid sports car manufactured by German automobile manufacturer Porsche.[4] The 918 Spyder is powered by a naturally aspirated 4.6 L (4,593 cc) V8 engine, developing 447 kW (608 PS; 599 hp) at 8,700 rpm, with two electric motors delivering an additional 210 kW (286 PS; 282 hp) for a combined output of 652 kW (887 PS; 875 hp) and 1,280 N⋅m (944 lbf⋅ft) of torque.[5][6] The 918 Spyder’s 6.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack delivers an all-electric range of 19 km (12 mi) under the US Environmental Protection Agency‘s five-cycle tests.[1]

Production began on 18 September 2013, with deliveries initially scheduled to begin in December 2013, and a starting price of ~ €711,000 (US$845,000 or GB£711,000).[7][8][9] The 918 Spyder was sold out in December 2014 and production ended in June 2015.[10]

The 918 Spyder was first shown as a concept at the 80th Geneva Motor Show in March 2010.[7] On 28 July 2010, after 2,000 declarations of interest, the supervisory board of Porsche AG approved series development of the 918 Spyder.[11] The production version was unveiled at the September 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.[12] Porsche also unveiled the RSR racing variant of the 918 at the 2011 North American International Auto Show, which combines hybrid technology first used in the 997 GT3 R Hybrid, with styling from the 918 Spyder.[13] However, the 918 RSR didn’t make it to production. The 918 Spyder was the second plug-in hybrid car manufactured by Porsche, after the 2014 Panamera S E-Hybrid.[14]
