THE 1ST ELECTRIC CAR FROM PORSCHE
The Porsche 918 Spyder is a mid-engined sports car designed by Porsche and first shown as a concept at the 80th edition of the Geneva Motor Show in March 2010. The Spyder is powered by a 3.4 litre V8 engine, developing 500 horsepower (370 kW), with three electric motors delivering an additional 218 horsepower (163 kW). It is the first plug-in hybrid car from Porsche.
Porsche later announced a limited production of the vehicle. At NAIAS 2011, Porsche unveiled the RSR racing variant of the 918, which combines hybrid technology first used in the 911 GT3 R Hydrid, with styling from the 918 Spyder.
The 918 Spyder is featured in the game Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit as a drivable vehicle. Unlike the other Porsche cars featured in the game, it is not available in a police livery. The car is also one of the cars that can be driven in Need for speed: Shift 2 Unleashed
