PORSCHE 918 SPYDER PHOTOS
This is the fastest and most powerful road-going Porsche model yet—the ultra complex and breathtakingly expensive 918 Spyder. Carrying on a celebrated line of racetrack-inspired limited-production specials, the 918 Spyder was first revealed as a concept at the 2010 Geneva motor show prior to receiving an official production greenlight later that year.
Since then the targa-roofed Porsche has undergone an intensive three-year development program culminating in a final validation test at the Nürburgring in early September. There factory driver Marc Lieb established an official 6-minute, 57-second lap time, undercutting the Carrera GT by a stout 33 seconds. Up to now the GT was the fastest road-going Porsche model to ever lap the iconic German race circuit.
On the outside, you see plenty of Porsche’s trademark characteristics. It boasts a sloped nose, along with a sleek roofline that tapers all the way down to the rear end. Speaking of the roofline, a two-piece Targa top graces this roof, giving you the opportunity to drive in the open air. What makes the 918 Spyder special is where Porsche strayed from its typical styling. Up front, you get shapelier headlights than you will see on the rest of its lineup. The front fenders are also far less bulging than on the other models in its line.
