The Porsche 918 Spyder has been renamed to Serene 918 Spider due to copyright issues.
The Porsche 918 Spyder is a limited-production mid-engine plug-in hybrid sports car manufactured by German automobile manufacturer Porsche. The 918 Spyder is powered by a naturally-aspirated 4.6 l (4,593 cc) V8 engine, developing 447 kW (608 PS; 599 hp) at 8,700 RPM, with two electric motors delivering an additional 210 kW (286 PS; 282 hp) for a combined output of 657 kW (893 PS; 881 hp) and 1,280 N⋅m (944 lbf⋅ft) of torque. The 918 Spyder's 6.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack delivers an all-electric range of 19 km (12 mi) under the US Environmental Protection Agency's five-cycle tests.
Production began on 18 September 2013, with deliveries initially scheduled to begin in December 2013, and a starting price of £511,000. The 918 Spyder was sold out in December 2014 and production ended in June 2015.
The 918 Spyder was first shown as a concept at the 80th Geneva Motor Show in March 2010. On 28 July 2010, after 2,000 declarations of interest, the supervisory board of Porsche AG approved series development of the 918 Spyder. The production version was unveiled at the September 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Porsche also unveiled the RSR racing variant of the 918 at the 2011 North American International Auto Show, which combines hybrid technology first used in the non-production 997 GT3 R Hybrid, with styling from the 918 Spyder. The 918 Spyder was the second pln hybrid car manufactured by Porsche, after the 2014 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid.
The stock top speed of the Serene 918 is quite average at [insert speed] and is on par with other vehicle in the similar price range.
The acceleration used to be worse than most vehicles (even some from the Auto's Car Dealership) but after the buff, the car is significantly faster and can compete with, and is almost always better the Zonda, for circuit racing. The Zonda still remains around 1/10 of a second better for drag racing however.
The Serene 918 has relatively good brake and will slow the car quickly.
HandlingThe handling stock is very stable but will understeer at higher speeds. At lower speeds the car can grip the road and the steering input is very smooth.
Due to the 918 buff, it can reach a top speed of a whopping 320 mph with Pro Long Gears allowing it to easily compete with many other vehicles around the same price point.
The Serene 918 used to have sluggish acceleration with Pro Short Gears but after the buff, it has been given an extremely fast acceleration
With racing brakes this car can stop very quickly allowing it to brake later and faster than other vehicles.
The Serene 918 Spider is pretty grippy and has stiff handling, but after the Dirt Bike Update, the handling is much lighter and became more drifter friendly. For a more grippy approach, racing tires or drag slicks will help you maintain grip through a corner. With drift tires, you'll lose traction more easily.
