Porsche 918 Spyder - On The Road
BrianZuk records the incredible all-new Porsche 918 Spyder. This is the only one in the world at this time. The video begins with the cover being stripped off the 918, then the 918 starts up and drives to the front of the Lodge at Pebble Beach for the Concours. The video then shows all angles of the 918, both the exterior and interior. And finally, the video concludes with the 918 driving off in all-electric mode into a trailer. Incredible car, enjoy this rare footage...

Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid drives - first real video
This past Thursday, the Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid made its driving debut on a closed road in Monterey California, just days prior to its appearance at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
After being shipped over from Germany by plane, engineers handed the keys of the new 918 Spyder Hybrid to Porsche AG Design Chief Michael Mauer. The car drove under its own power which comes from the mid mounted 3.4 liter V8 out of the RS Spyder as well as in all electric mode which powers just the front wheels.
The 918 Spyder prototype combines high-tech racing features and electro-mobility to offer a fascinating range of qualities: An emission level of just 70 grams CO2 per kilometre on fuel consumption of three litres/100 kilometres (equal to 94 mpg imp) truly outstanding even for an ultra-compact city car, on the one hand, combined with the performance of a super sports car and acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just under 3.2 seconds, top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph) plus, and a lap time on the Nordschleife of Nürburgring in less than 7:30 minutes, faster than even the Porsche Carrera GT, on the other.

Porsche 918 Spyder Exclusive Start Up
This was an exclusive invite only that came straight from Porsche headquarters in Stuttgart Germany. The security was so tight that it took us 10 min. to get through. It was the debut for the US in Monterey, CA. There were 25 of us there, and it was the first time that they had started the car for anyone outside of Porsche.

Jay Leno reviews Porsche 918 RSR Concept at Porsche Zentrum at The Quail
Jay Leno at the Porsche Zentrum at the Quail 0n Friday August 19th, 2011 during Monterey Auto Week. The 918 RSR concept was the highlight of the Porsche Zentrum display on Friday and Saturday, August 19-20.
The 918 RSR concept is a high-end synthesis of Porsche's successful hybrid concepts -- the 911 GT3 R Hybrid and the 918 Spyder.
It is a true 'racing laboratory' featuring an updated V8 engine from the successful RS Spyder race car with an output of 563 hp at 10,300 rpm. In addition, it features electric motors on the two front wheels that each contribute 75 kW, i.e. a total of 150 kW, to provide peak drive power of 767 hp. This additional power, which is generated during braking, is stored in an optimized flywheel accumulator.
