Porsche is yet to reveal how many of the 918 build slots for its supercar have been filled, but the last we heard the order books were still open. At $845,000 a pop, the 918 Spyder is expensive, but it's a relative bargain beside the other hybrid hypercars of the world; the McLaren P1 was priced at $1.15 million in the U.S. and the LaFerrari’s pricetag was also set higher than a $1 million. Of course, Ferrari flagships tend to rise in price over the years so you can understand why there were so many eager buyers.
McLaren started production of its P1 back in September and is building the cars at a rate of one per day. A total of 61 people are responsible for each, completing them in a 10-step process.
How the P1 will fare against its rivals remains to be seen, although it's likely neither Ferrari nor McLaren has managed to beat the 6:57 Nürburgring lap record set by Porsche with its 918 Spyder.
