The new Porsche 918, as you may know, is still being tested and fine-tuned by engineers, and it was during these tests that they managed to find a little more oomph, thus increasing the performance of the hybrid super car. So Porsche updated performance figures for the 918 Spyder with Weissach Package.
According to the new info, Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach Package accelerates from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 2.6 seconds (-0.2 seconds quicker than previously), from zero to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 7.2 seconds (-0.5 seconds), and passes the 186 mph (300 km/h) mark after 19.9 seconds (-2.1 seconds).
In pure electric mode, the two electric motors pull the 918 from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds (6.1 with Weissach Package), which is great, considering this mode is silent and zero emission. The top speed and Nurburgring time (6:57 minutes) remain unchanged. The 918 still isn’t a 350 km/h car, which might be an issue for some, as both McLaren P1 and the LaFerrari can manage that.
In terms of fuel economy, the 918 with Weissach package does 94 mpg (3.0 l/100 km). Without the package, it manages 91 mpg (3.1 l/100 km). CO2 rating is 70 g/km (72 g/km without the Weissach package).
