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.
