Porsche 918 Spyder may be priced at $630,000

According to the latest reports, it appears that Porsche will price the 918 Spyder at $630,000.

It means that the new hybrid supercar from the German manufacturer will be more expensive than the Carrera GT.

For its new vehicle which will be its most expensive model, Porsche says that over 2,000 potential buyers expressed their interest for the supercar.

For those who don’t know, the 918 Spyder is one of three hybrid models Porsche presented at the Geneva Auto Show in March.

The 918 Spyder is like no other hybrid on the market, with its ability to return up to 78 mpg, with ultralow CO2 emissions, yet accelerate from zero to 60 in less than 3.2 seconds and gallop to a top speed of 198 mph.

Mounted ahead of the rear axle, the V8 is an evolution of the 3.4-liter unit that powers the Porsche RS Spyder, rated at more than 500 hp.

Porsche also fits electric motors to the front and rear axles, with a combined output of 160 kW (215 hp).

Power is transmitted to the rear wheels through Porsche’s seven-speed PDK gearbox. The front wheels receive electric power from a fixed-ratio transmission.
