Porsche 918 Spyder Concept

Porsche, in their Press Release, introduced a new, efficient, high-performance, medium engine, low-emission, and hybrid sports car- the 918 Spyder. The prototype of this model is fused with the latest breakthroughs in technology. Also, it answers the demands of today’s society.

First off, the 918 Spyder is an environmental friendly vehicle having a very low emission rate. After consuming three liters of fuel, the car emits only 70 grams per kilometer of Carbon dioxide. Indeed, it shows that Porsche is not lagging behind in terms of hybrid technology.

Then, it has one of the fastest accelerations. Although the 918 Spyder only has a medium sized engine, it performs as well as those with large engines.
From rest, the car can go up to a hundred kilometers per hour in just 3.2 seconds with a maximum speed of 320 kilometers per hour; running at a speed which is even faster than most sports cars, even Porsche’s own Carrera GT.
The 918 Spyder has an 8 cylinder hybrid engine. And it weighs less than 3300 pounds. One of its best features is the option to choose a running mode located on the steering wheel. These four running modes are: E-Drive mode, Hybrid mode, Sport Hybrid mode, and the Race hybrid mode. Drivers can choose the best mode in relation to the road conditions. Porsche currently has three hybrid cars that will make their first appearance at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.
