That’s It: Porsche 918 Spyder Officially Sold Out

porsche 918 spyder 600x417 at That’s It: Porsche 918 Spyder Officially Sold Out

The 918th unit of Porsche 918 Spyder has now been sold and that means you can’t order a brand-new one from the factory, ever. It also means those who have already taken delivery of their 918s, or will in the near future, can pretty much name their own price.

The same happened with the LaFerrari and McLaren P1. The moment they were sold out, second hand models popped up in the market, put on sale by private sellers for twice and sometimes three times the original price. Porsche 918 was the cheapest of the three new hyper cars launched this year with a starting price of well under 1 million Euros. Now though, there is only one place its prices will go and that’s upwards.

Of the 918 Porsche 918 Spyder production units, 297 will end up in America, with Germany and China getting the most number of 918s after that.
