Catch the Porsche 918 Spyder from just about any angle and it is hard to spot a detail that hasn’t been breathed on by Porsche’s engineers.
From the vertical-exit tailpipes and the Spyder removable roof, to the carbon fibre tub designed to accommodate the plug-in hybrid’s hefty battery packs and PDK transmission as low as possible, everything about the 918 Spyder has been designed with absolute peak performance in mind.
That makes it all the more impressive that inside the Porsche comes with all the creature comforts you’d expect in the 21st century; modern infotainment system, multi-function steering wheel, climate control and a high-end Burmester sound system all add to the expierience, without detracting from the driver-focused cockpit, designed to perfectly suit the needs of a driver chasing their next personal best lap time.
Porsche 918 Spyder Videos
We’ve scoured the corners of the Internet to bring you the highlights of the wealth of Porsche 918 Spyder content out there, curated from some of our favourite automotive journalists, experts and opinion shapers lucky enough to take a spin behind the wheel of hypercar royalty such as this.
So what are you waiting for? Sit back, get comfortable, and feast your hypercar-seeking soul on these 918 Spyder films.
Steve Sutcliffe heads to test the Porsche 918 Spyder for Autocar cites earlier doubts from a 2011 edition of the magazine that there could be a time where any car could surpass the Bugatti Veyron Supersports. Rather excitingly, he feels that time had already come by 2013, when he got his first experience of the Porsche 918.
Pitting any car against something so world-beating as a Bugatti Veyron is always going to be a daunting undertaking, but given the level at which the 918 Spyder is playing – in terms of technology and all-out pace and performance – we think it’s in with a shot. Don’t forget that Porsche’s owners, Volkswagen, also signed off on the Veyron project, and the Chiron that followed it.
Perhaps most illustrative of the 918’s capabilities is the segment of the video where Steve keeps pace with Walter Rohrl – who himself is pushing hard in an Porsche 911 Turbo!
Doug DeMuro has been very kindly loaned a stunning grey-with-red-highlights example of the Porsche 918 Spyder by an Instagrammer with excellent taste and enough money for such things. (An increasingly rare combination these days…)
Over the course of almost 30 minutes, Doug pores over the details of the 918, even giving a point-of-view button-pressing overview of the steering wheel. And we’re so glad he did, because the level of attention to detail in the 918 is extraordinary… as you might expect from a halo Porsche.

Filming the 918 on a deserted Abu Dhabi GP circuit for old Top Gear, this video featuring Richard ‘Hamster’ Hammond is worth a watch for the cinematic detail alone.
It’s night, and the hamster has free reign over the track. The 918 takes centre stage however (how could it not?!), spitting fire from those top-exit exhaust pipes, barking and snapping and snarling its way around the Yas Marina.
Pitting the 918 Spyder against one of its most formidable contemporary rivals around Anglesey Circuit, UK, Jethro Bovingdon for EVO has his hands full.
With Jethro driving the P1 first, we get to see just what the 918 is up against – the McLaren flexes and exhales, demonstrating that it isn’t to be messed with. How does the Porsche shape up against it? Watch below and find out…
Mike Spinelli wrestles with the sheer conceptual greatness of the Porsche 918 Spyder before letting Porsche factory driver Patrick Long put it through his paces a Circuit of the Americas.
While Mike himself doesn’t get behind the wheel, there is some truly stunning footage of the car scithing across the vast tarmac of the Texan circuit, dubbed over with Spinelli’s enthusiastic and expert comment.
In this video for The Drive, Chris Harris traces the three-and-a-half year journey to the birth of the 918 Spyder, tackling the addition of the hybrid system head on and considering the build-up to the launch of the 918 in the context of its arrival – and what it has to prove to the world.
After rifling through the car’s stats (set to some fabulous slow-mo footage of him drifting the car through the curves of the Valencia Circuit), Harris hops behind the wheel.Porsche 918 Spyder Press Release > < Back To The Beginning
