Porsche has tweeted a photo of the latest production version of their 918 Spyder as it readies for an appearance at this weekend’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The photo, which came from the official Porsche Twitter account (check it out here) shows the 918 Spyder as close to production as we’ve seen yet.

As we have previously reported, the 918 Spyder is expected to be powered by 4.6-liter V8 engine mated with two electric motors. The combined horsepower is expected to be somewhere around the 885 hp mark, with the engine producing over 600 hp. The two electric motors will make up the difference at about 150 hp each.

As Porsche’s first high performance plug-in hybrid, acceleration to 60 mph will come up in a brisk 2.8 seconds on the way to an approximate top speed of 210 mph. Remember, all these figures haven’t quite been confirmed by Porsche as of yet, although they won’t be too far off the production figures.

We will continue to bring you coverage of the weekend’s festivities at Pebble Beach. Meanwhile, check out the image Porsche tweeted above. Stay tuned!
