    Monterey: Porsche 918 Spyder pre-production version in all its almost-done glory

    Filed under: Convertible, Hybrid, Performance, Porsche, Misc. Auto Shows


    Porsche continues the long tease of its upcoming 918 Spyder, with the latest instantiation here at the Pebble Beach Concours, with the car presented in pre-production form to the throngs on the golf course.

    Just a few days ago Porsche dropped an image of the car on its official Twitter feed. True to that leak, this 918 looks damn near what we expect the full customer version to be when it is officially debuted in Frankfurt. The neon-green brake calipers are items new to this version of the 918, and seem to be an identical color to those found on the Panamera S E-Hybrid.

    When it shows up as a drivable piece, expect the Porsche supercar, with its gasoline-electric drivetrain, to be pretty insane. Horsepower in excess of 800 ponies will be available with a toe-tap, while the price of entry is expected to come within shouting distance of $850,000. A good deal for Porsche to bring the thing to Pebble then, where buyers with that kind of cash are think on the ground (and most likely wearing sherbet-colored trousers).

    We've got image galleries of both our new live images from here at Pebble, and the latest official photos of this late-stage Porsche prototype, browse with confidence.Porsche 918 Spyder pre-production version in all its almost-done glory originally appeared on Autoblog on Sun, 18 Aug 2013 18:29:00 EST.
