The next Porsche 918 will be a Spider

In a recent report, Porsche's outgoing chief of development Wolfgang Durheimer stated that the next Porsche 918 will be a spider and that it will come with a removable roof top, just as the old Carrera GT. In fact, the Spyder will feature a similar concept, using a light weight carbon-fiber panel. Also, the 918 will go into production without interfering with another Porsche project, the 918 RSR, even if they share the same hybrid technology.
On the other hand, Porsche has big plans for its 918 RSR. The German car manufacturer intends to enter the 918 RSR in several racing series of the 2011 season, something that could prove difficult taking into account the fact that most of the racing series have already begun or they are about to do so. Anyway, the 918 RSR is a different story and we’ll write more about it in a future article.
Now back to the 918, we should say that the Spyder was described as a Supersport car, and also as the first of the Porsches to go ecological with a hybrid propulsion system, though at the same time, the 918 promises to be a landmark for the next Porsche generation.
