Porsche gives 918 Spyder the go-ahead

Porsche has confirmed it will make a production version of the 918 Spyder hybrid supercar that it displayed at this year's Geneva motor show.

The gloriously adventurous mid-engined sports car was one of the hits of the show, with Porsche having not told anyone it was planning to display the 918 before it appeared on the stand.From the moment of its unveiling there was intense speculation that Porsche would build the car, and this was backed up by senior execs admitting that Porsche has a history of always putting its concepts into production.

Reports suggested that as many as 900 hundred buyers had expressed interest in the car.

The petrol electric hybrid is claimed to emit just 70g/km of CO2, and the concept was said to be capable of going as far as 94.1 miles for every gallon of fuel.

There are no indications on further details such as speed, performance or price, but Porsche has promised that it will tell us more in the coming months. We can't wait.
