Porsche 918 Spyder Production Ends

Porsche 918 Spyder Production 600x350 at Porsche 918 Spyder Production Ends

Embrace yourself for a sudden spike in Porsche 918 Spyder prices if you are out shopping for one. The 918th unit of the German hyper car recently left the factory which means the production run is complete and there will be no new 918 available. This will invariably affect the value of the car.

Porsche 918 Spyder was the cheapest one of the trio of the hyper hypercars that came out last year and it had the biggest production number as well. That’s why it wasn’t, at least at first, a sound investment for car dealers. It wouldn’t return a big profit. Now though, things have changed. Now the 918 is a rare gem. Now dealers can double the sticker price.

So the production run is over for the Porsche 918 Spyder, but its legacy is alive and well. In terms of technological significance, the 918 is on the par with the Porsche 959, in the sense that it pushed the envelope and introduced new technologies that will pretty soon be used in our everyday cars with immense benefits in terms of performance and fuel efficiency. That is exactly why we think the 918 was a more important car than the P1 or the LaFerrari.

So let’s just remind ourselves one last time some of the great things about the 918 Spyder: carbon-polymer construction, electronically-controlled all-wheel drive system, racing-bred mid-mounted V8 engine, two electric motors, brake energy recovery system, 887 total system hp, Nürburgring time of 6 minutes 57 seconds, 67 MPGe.
