On September 18th, in test drives on the “Nurburgring-Nordschleife”, a Porsche 918 Spyder prototype turned in a remarkable best time of just 07:14 minutes for the demanding 20.8-kilometer (12.92-mile) long circuit.
One year before its production launch, the 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid super sports car from Porsche AG is already proving its superlative dynamic performance potential.
The lap time of the Porsche 918 Spyder prototype is one of the best ever clocked for street-legal vehicles with standard production tires.
The course was only available to the development team from Weissach for one lap, and it had to be started from a standstill.
The 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid super sports car with over 795 hp was equipped with production tires from development partner Michelin as well as the optional “Weissach” package, which integrates modifications that boost driving performance.[wzslider height=”400″ lightbox=”true”]
