Porsche Unveils Its 918 Spyder 2015 Sportscar
Porsche definitely proved that it could keep up with the current trends when it released the brand new 918 Spyder 2015 – a pinnacle of modern engineering that boasts impressive performance capabilities, great looks and incredible efficiency at the same time.
The car was equipped with an outstanding drivetrain that involves a hybrid engine on the rear axle, an electric motor on the front axle as well as a 4.6-liter V8 engine under the hood. The 608 horsepower of the V8 combined with 154 horsepower of the hybrid module and the 127 horsepower of the electric motor ensure a sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds. These numbers rival with those boasted by some of the world’s most acclaimed hypercars, but the 918 Spyder was not built to be driven just on the track.
This elegant machine has a softer side as well, which comes to light when it is forced to run on electricity exclusively. This mode ensures a range of approximately 18 miles and a top speed of 93mph, while the 0-62 sprint time goes up to 7 seconds.
The new Porsche is “light as a feather”, since it features multiple carbon fiber reinforced polymer elements, including the air filter box and the oil tank. That being said, the Porsche 918 Spyder 2015 is a fantastic sportscar that will definitely earn a special place in the hearts of automotive enthusiasts.
