Porsche 918 Spyder Specs & Performance Numbers

It’s impossible to describe the Porsche 918 Spyder’s performance figures without resorting to hyperbole. The all-out go of this machine is absolutely astounding.

Surprisingly for a God-tier hypercar however, the 918 Spyder’s green credentials (on paper at least) are very good too. Take a gander at the table below and see what we mean.

The 918 Spyder launched alongside hybrid hypercar rivals from Ferrari and McLaren, ushering in a new era of all-out performance borne out of the combination of two power sources. Sure, better fuel economy may just be a byproduct of the pursuit of speed, but it is also a stepping stone to zero emissions machines utilising progressive powertrains that return the thrills without pouring tonnes of harmful gases into the atmosphere.
