Porsche celebrated the 50th year of the 911 but another one of their creations took center stage at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2013. The 918 Spyder has been long awaited and finally a fully fledged production model was unveiled along with the news that it could lap the Nurburgring in under 7 minutes!

The Porsche 918 Spyder comes fitted with a mid-mounted 4.6-litre V8 engine producing 608 bhp independently – the highest specific power of any naturally aspirated Porsche engine. The V8 is then supplemented by a further two electric motors mounted on each axle.

The 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S comes fitted with a turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine complete with direct injection. This produces an impressive 560hp and 710Nm of torque! That equates to an increase of 30hp and 10Nm of torque over the previous generation Porsche 911 Turbo S. Consequently, the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S can sprint to 100km/h in just 3.1 seconds and hit 200km/h from a standstill in 10.3 seconds. The car then features a limited top speed of 318km/h.
