Porsche revises 918 Spyder figures

Porsche 918 Spyder
Porsche has just confirmed the rumours that it has made further enhancements to the 918 Spyder‘s drivetrain, resulting in increased performance.

From what we gather, apart from general fine tuning, the front motor has been reprogrammed to work at a higher rpm, allowing it to make more power for longer and to be decoupled at higher speeds and to make all the systems work together more efficiently.

With the hardcore Weissach package fitted, the 918 now cracks 100 km/h in just 2.6 seconds (-0.2s), 200 km/h in 7.2s (-0.5s), and reaches 300 km/h mark after 19.9 seconds (-2.1s). In purely electric mode the car accelerate from to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds or 6.1s with the Weissach package fitted.

“We have now used all options available to electrify the 918 Spyder, working right up to the last minute to do so,” said Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, the car’s project manager.
