The Porsche 918 Spyder will receive more power when going into production.
The concept car was shown to potential customers at a private viewing at Pebble Beach last weekend. A 500bhp V8 petrol engine – a development of the RS Spyder racer’s 3.4-litre unit – and a brace of electric motors with a combined output of 218bhp powers it.
Insiders at the event said both the power and displacement of the petrol engine would be increased for production. The 918 was shown moving under its own power at Pebble Beach for the first time.
