Porsche 918 Hybrid Testing On Nürburgring Nordschleife
Porsche took their 918 Spyder Hybrid on some Nürburgring Nordschleife last Tuesday and achieved some really interesting times. Their prototype turned in a remarkable best time of just 07:14 minutes for the 20.6 kilometers of “Green Hell” making it a really impressive score.
Even one year before its production launch the car is proving itself on what many called the hardest testing grounds any car and its handling can undertake. It proves its superlative dynamic performance potential by delivering more than the project leader Dr. Frank Walliser expected of it.
“By turning in a fabulous time of 07:14 minutes, the 918 Spyder prototype has already fully confirmed the viability of its future concept after just a few months on the road.” said Dr. Frank Walliser, overall project leader for the 918 Spyder.
The lap time of the Porsche 918 Spyder prototype is one of the best ever clocked for street-legal vehicles with standard production tyres. The course was only available to the development team from Weissach for one lap, and it had to be started from a standstill.
The plug-in hybrid super sports car with over 795 hp was equipped with production tyres from development partner Michelin as well as the optional “Weissach” package, which integrates modifications that boost driving performance.
