Porsche 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid hits the track

For those of you saving up the $845,000 you’ll need to purchase a Porsche 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid, we have good news. No, the price hasn’t come down – but it is as fast as originally advertised.

Porsche, in one of those whetting-the-appetite news releases, said the supercar prototype zipped around the 12.8-mile Nürburgring Nordschleife (a twisting and turning and rising and falling track in the Eifel mountains) in 7 minutes and 14 seconds. That’s an average speed of 106 mph.

That was enough for Porsche to shout “success!”

“With the time of 7:14 minutes, the 918 Spyder prototype is already proving to be a fully sustainable concept after just a few months on the road,” Frank Walliser, head of the 918 Spyder project, said in a statement.
