Car Description
Back in 2010 the Performance Hybrid Porsche 918 Spyder made its debut at teh 2010 Geneva International Motor Show. The 918 Spyder combines two electric motors with a high performance gas engine.
The 918 Spyder has unique thermal management system consisting of 5 separate cooling circuits using both air and water. The intelligent generator control system is capable of converting far more of the kinetic energy into electrical energy than other hybrid vehicles of it's class. This allows this hybrid sports car to reach an EPA rating of 67 MPGs.

The results of its engineering prowess speak for themselves. The Porsche 918 Spyder goes from 0-60mph in an impressive 2.5 seconds. In fully electric mode it can make 0-62 in 6.2 seconds with zero emissions and is capable of reaching a speed of 93 mph. On the track it was bench-marked with an acceleration of 0-124 in 7.2 seconds and 0-186 in just 19.9 seconds.



The 918 Spyder weighs in at a trim 3,715 lbs. And 3,616 lbs. With the Weissach package. This is die to the entire load bearing structure being comprised of carbon fiber reinforced polymer.

Another interesting feature is its rear axle steering which changes based on vehicle speed. To assist with faster more responsive cornering and a tighter turning radius at low speeds the rear wheels turn in the direction opposite of the front wheels. At high speeds the mode changes so that the rear wheels turn the same direction as the front wheels which improves the stability of the 918 Spyder.
