Porsche has confirmed their plans to build the Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid if there’s enough customer demand. So it’s up to all of us …
Porsche has yet to commit to producing the car – but speaking to Autocar, Macht admitted that the positive reaction to the 918 had already swayed opinion within the firm.
“There is no one inside Porsche who doesn’t want to build the 918,” he said. “The response has been marvellous; we will ask buyers to sign letters of intent.
“The 918 Spyder provides the answer to whether there can be high-performance cars in the future,” he added. “Many have said they are finished. This car shows they are not.”
Insiders say the production 918 is likely to go on sale within five years. However, like all Porsches, it will need to make money, despite its ‘halo’ status within the firm’s range.
