As it was expected, Porsche has released different new details on their future 918 Spyder. The new model is capable of combining pedigree motor racing technology with excellent everyday utility and maximum performance with minimum consumption. The model was designed around the hybrid drive and proves the potential of the hybrid drive to a degree never seen before. The 918 Spyder has the potential to break many records. The 918 Spyder prototype model was around 20 seconds quicker than the Porsche Carrera GT. As a plug-in hybrid vehicle combines the dynamic performance of a racing machine with more than 880 horsepower and low NEDC fuel consumption. The model has a lightweight design with a low center of gravity.
The whole load-bearing structure is made of carbon fiber reinforced polymer for extreme torsional rigidity. The drive train components and all components weigh over 50 kg and are located as low as centrally as possible within the vehicle. The central and low position of the traction battery directly behind the driver not only supports efforts to concentrate masses and lower center of gravity, but it also provides the best temperature conditions for perfect battery power capacity. The carmaker has offered the Porsche Active Aerodynamic, which is a system of adjustable aerodynamic elements which ensures unique and variable aerodynamics. The new model also comes with adjustable air inlets under the main headlights. The car receives power from a 4.6-liter 8-cylinder unit capable of generating 608 horsepower. The V8 engine is coupled to the hybrid module which comprises a 115 kW electric motor and a decoupler that serves as the connection with the combustion engine.
