Auto News Release
918 Spyder prototype achieves a lap time of seven minutes and 14 seconds
Atlanta. In test runs on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, the Porsche 918 Spyder prototype achieved a best time of just 7 minutes and 14 seconds around the 12.8 mile track. The plug-in hybrid super car has surpassed expectations and proven its dynamic driving potential nearly one year before the start of series production.
“With the time of 7:14 minutes, the 918 Spyder prototype is already proving to be a fully sustainable concept after just a few months on the road,” said Dr. Frank Walliser, head of the 918 Spyder project.
The lap time of the Porsche 918 Spyder prototype is one of the best ever recorded for a street-legal vehicle with standard tires. It is particularly impressive as it was achieved from a standing start. The 795-horsepower plug-in hybrid super sports car was equipped with production-intent Michelin street tires and the optional “Weissach” feature package, which includes measures to improve driving dynamics.
