Production Porsche 918 Spyder Revealed Early On Video?

Follow Nelson

We've seen the near-production Porsche 918 Spyder in several different forms, including its most recent Martini Racing livery, for months now. The official releases have all but given away what the production version of the car will look like, but in this video, we see what purports to be the real deal, dressed in simple silver rather obfuscating racing stripes.

While we can't vouch for the authenticity of the video, found via Biser3a, the car itself looks identical to the liveried versions we've already seen, with the exhaust mounted on top of the engine cover as you'd expect, but in its classic silver paint, the Spyder looks much more like a street car--and remains breathtakingly gorgeous.

With the 918's combination of beauty, power, and efficiency, it's set to show the world what "supercar" really means in the 21st century, packing a 4.6-liter V-8 engine, PDK dual-clutch transmission, hybrid drive with all-electric capability, and expected horsepower at about 770 total. All with 78 mpg gas mileage.

  1. WOW!!!!!!!! I'm so impressed. It's an amazing evolution from the Carrera GT.

  2. Center locking hubs suggest prototype.

  3. Actually, center locking wheels are already a standard or optional item on several production Porsche models.

  4. Don't you remember the Carrera GT and its blue and red center wheel locks? One pair for each side of the car. That was cool. This will be a great Porsche too. Looks even better than the concept IMO. Love how the exhausts stick out, staring at the face of the driver behind the car.

  5. someone let me borrow 900K
