Porsche has already confirmed that the 918 Spyder will produce 800-hp with a 0 to 62 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of more than 200 mph - Making it one impressive plug-in hybrid.
Last week, the 918 Spyder recorded the fastest lap on the Nurburgring Nordschleife in just 7:14 for a hybrid and more impressive, it's second to the current record holder, the Gumpert Apollo Speed (Petrol Based) which went around in 7:11.57.
The leaked brochure offered some further details, but on the whole the production 918 Spyder appears virtually identical to the concept first shown at the 2010 Geneva. Owners will have the choice of 10 colours and a Martini Racing finish, with the Liquid Metal Blue or Liquid Metal Grey exterior finish adding an additional $65,000. The interior follows similar cues from the Carrera GT’s & for those willing to loose a few amenities like air conditioning or an audio system can select the Weissach Package which sheds 77 pounds from the 918 Spyder's 3659lb total weight.
Production is scheduled for 2013 and only 918 will be made.
