Video First Driving Footage Porsche 918 Spyder

The first ever driving footage of the new Porsche 918 Spyder concept has been filmed and uploaded to YouTube. One video shows the roofless hybrid concept driving over a local mountain road somewhere in Carmel, US. The second video was shot inside the Pebble Peach event center. In both videos you can hear the engine running and the exhaust tune.

The hybrid concept uses a drive system currently featuring a 3.4 liter V8 which is expected to increase in size before production starts. This is coupled with three 40kW electric motors using both regenerative braking and a more traditional plug-in system.

  1. what!? lol are you retarded. why would you think porsche is trying hard to be american? no european or japanese manufacturer would ever want to copy american s*** cars. americans always come to european and japanese brands for help and ideas. this car is hot. stick to your s*** corvettes and mustangs. piece of s*** gas guzzlers

  2. i actually dont have a problem with it being a hybrid. its a good idea. makes it actually usable. but it dosnt cover up the fact that it looks and sounds like s***.

  3. The porsche had quite a nice noise so that you cant tell if its hybrid or not. It looks cool too. I hate hybrids and all that eco specialy the so called green supercars s*** but this car is good and radical. By the way there is your anser for the rims.
