In the Porsche 918 Spyder, Porsche is launching the future of the sportscar: As the first vehicle to boast road homologation, the Porsche 918 Spyder beat the record of seven minutes set for a lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife, achieving a time of 6:57 minutes. What's more, the Porsche 918 Spyder can glide through the city without releasing any emissions, and virtually without a sound.
The maximum level of performance delivered by the Porsche 918 Spyder, namely through its system out - put of 887 hp and minimal consumption figure of three litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC), is the result of a unique plug-in hybrid concept. To meet the driver's requirements, the Porsche 918 Spyder exhausts all possibilities offered by the combined drive of combustion engine and electric motor.
The Porsche 918 Spyder is a mid-engined plug-in hybrid supercar designed by Porsche. The Porsche Spyder is powered by a 4.6 liter V8 engine, developing 608 horsepower (453 kW), with two electric motors delivering an additional 279 horsepower (208 kW) for a combined output of 887 horsepower (661 kW). The Porsche 918 Spyder's 6.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack delivers an all-electric range of 12 mi (19 km) under EPA's five-cycle tests.[1] The Porsche 918 Spyder top speed of around 345 km/h (214 mph).[3]

The Porsche 918 Spyder is a limited edition supercar, and Porsche plans to manufacture 918 units as a 2014 Porsche model year. Production began on September 18, 2013, with deliveries initially scheduled to begin in December 2013. The starting price is US$845,000.[3] It is the second plug-in Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid car from Porsche, after the 2014 Panamera S E-Hybrid.
The Porsche 918 Spyder production version was unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.[7] The 2013 model year Porsche 918 Spyder is being produced in a limited series and it was developed in Weissach and assembled in Zuffenhausen. Porsche planned to manufacture Porsche 918 units as a 2014 model year and production started on November 18, 2013, with deliveries scheduled to begin in December 2013.
Porsche 918 Spyder Sales in the United States began in June 2014.[20] Pricing for the Porsche 918 Spyder price US$845,000 (~ €611,000 or GB£511,000).[3] According to its battery size, the 918 Spyder is eligible to a federal tax credit of up to US$3,667.
Porsche announced that on September 4, 2013, a Porsche 918 fitted with the optional 'Weissach Package' set a Nürburgring lap time of 6:57 on the 12.8 mi (20.6 km) road course, reducing the previous record by 14 seconds, and making it the first series production street-legal automobile to break the 7 minute barrier (Radical SR8 cannot be converted to street use in certain countries).
Walter Röhrl (born 7 March 1947 in Regensburg) is a German rally and auto racing driver, with victories for Fiat, Opel, Lancia and Audi as well as Porsche, Ford and BMW. In Italy, Walter Röhrl was elected "Rallye driver of the century". In France Walter Röhrl was elected "Rallye driver of the millennium" in November 2000. A jury out of 100 worldwide motorsports experts elected Walter Röhrl "Best Rallye driver ever" in Italy.

In recent years, Walter Röhrl has been retained as the senior test driver for Porsche road cars, famously setting quick laptimes for them testing round the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife, for example with the Porsche Carrera GT.

Walter Röhrl was expected to make his competitive return to the Nürburgring 24 hour race in 2010 at the wheel of a Porsche 911 GT3 RS. However, Walter Röhrl was forced to withdraw from the event due to a back injury.[7] It was to be Walter Röhrl's first 24 hour race in 17 years, since his last start in 1993. In 2011, Walter Röhrl was inducted into the Rally Hall of Fame along with Hannu Mikkola.
