The U.S. was the market with the most 918 Spyder sales, with 297 examples destined to land here. China and Germany were the next biggest markets, with each accounting for roughly 100 units. Pricing for the plug-in hybrid supercar started at $845,000.
Buoyed by the success of the 918 Spyder, Porsche will launch a successor in due course. The information was confirmed to Autocar by the automaker’s R&D chief Wolfgang Hatz.
“Will we build a successor to the 918? Yes,” Hatz said. “Not immediately, but not in 20 years' time either.”
The Porsche exec went on to explain that projects like the 918 Spyder help develop experience and technology that can be applied in other areas and vehicles.
Note, while it may be some time before we see another groundbreaking supercar like the 918 Spyder, Porsche may fill the gap with another, less extreme model, something akin to a modern-day 959.
