As far as hybrids go this has got to be up there with the best looking. Having previously brought you news of a Porsche 918 Spyder concept becoming official, we can now confirm that the German company is taking pre-orders starting at $845,000.
Though it may not be as cool as the 918 RSR hybrids, at least this one will make the production line. The expensive looking price tag seems to be justified when it comes to performance of the vehicle.
For the money you can expect a V8 mid-mounted car with 500HP at least, with a rear and front mounted electric motor providing an additional 218HP as well as AWD handling. These electric motors get the Li-ion technology battery pack offering 16 miles solely on electric off of a seven hour charge.
All in all 78 miles per gallon and a carbon-fiber bodied convertible capable of 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds makes the price tag seem reasonable wouldn’t you agree?
Shipping for the vehicle begins in the later end of 2013 which gives you plenty of time to save your pennies. Will you be getting a Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid? Let us know in the comments below.
