Porsche’s upcoming 918 Spyder supercar is, perhaps, the most eagerly anticipated hybrid vehicle in history, and images of pre-production cars are all over the internet. We’ve even shown you a leaked video (now private) that reportedly captures a production version at an uber-secret gathering for potential buyers.

Now, German site Auto Bild has published a photo of the 918 in production trim, originally filed with the Office of the European Union for the Registration of Trademarks, Designs and Models (OHIM). From what we can tell in the limited-resolution image, the car doesn’t differ much from what we’ve seen in a supposedly leaked brochure.

What we do know is that the 918 Spyder will come to market with a 4.6-liter V-8 engine, a seven-speed PDK gearbox and a pair of electric motors. Combined output is said to be 795 horsepower, with the V-8 contributing 580 horsepower to that total number.

The 918 Spyder will give drivers the ability to run in electric-only mode, gas-only mode or a combined mode. In the combined mode, the run from 0-60 mph is said to take around three seconds, and the claimed top speed is just over 200 mph (202 mph to be precise).

Auto Bild says that Porsche will begin 918 Spyder customer deliveries in September of 2013, priced from 768,026 euros ($1,018,940). Deliveries in the U.S. will reportedly begin in early 2014, with the car priced from $845,000 on this side of the Atlantic.
