The Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid plug-in, the concept car which debuted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, is now available for order for $845,000.
The 918 Spyder will come equipped with a plug-in hybrid system that consists of a high-revving V8, 500-horsepower engine, combined with two electric motors for an additional 218-horsepower. The electric motors will provide about 16 miles of electric-only driving on a single charge and are powered by a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery that can be charged from any conventional power socket. The Porsche 918 Spyder also features a 7-speed Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) dual clutch transmission, a 0-62 time of 3.2 seconds, and a top speed of 199 mph.
The 918 Spyder Hybrid plug-in is similar to the concept shown at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, but is now based on a carbon fiber reinforced plastic monocoque and will feature a manual roof system with removable panels that can be stowed away in the front luggage compartment.
