Not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven, but as many as EIGHT Porsche 918 Spyders put together. That is nice to wake up!
Once in a while Porsche comes up with a special supercar. Usually every 10 to 15 years. At the end of the eighties we were delighted with the Porsche 959. A 450 hp mutated Porsche that was successful at Dakar as well as Le Mans. In addition, it was also a very advanced road car, far ahead of its time.
The Carrera GT was the best way to fail a Le Mans race car project. The engine from that project was used for the Carrera GT supercar. For many, that is still the ultimate ‘analog’ supercar.
Porsche 918 Spyder
The Porsche 918 Spyder is quite the opposite. It’s basically a plug-in hybrid, but not a Prius or Outlander. There is an atmospheric V8 with 608 hp and two electric motors that together learn 286 hp. We have now known the design of the 918 Spyder for almost 10 years. The car’s concept form was unveiled in 2010 at the Geneva Salon. The production model was at the IAA in Frankfurt in 2013 shine.
Eight Porsche 918 Spyders
And now? Now there are no fewer than eight (!) Porsche 918 Spyders in the Netherlands! The chance that you will get a real Hypercar (one Audi R8 with spoiler is no hypercar) is very little, let alone several together. We see six different configurations of the hypercars.
We have to be a little cautious, but it seems that the variety of colors is greater than you might think, judging from the photos. The eight Porsche 918 Spyders are Carrara White (1), Rhodium Silver Metallic (1), Meteor Gray (2), Carrera GT Gray (20), Basalt Black (1) and Liqiud Metal Silver (1).
The latter is the light blue. It was a pretty pricey option at the time, but it looks great in the photos. Speaking of pricey options, the black 918 Spyder has the so-called Weissach Package, recognizable by its simpler styled wheels. Although you can swap them just as well, of course.
