OK, previously we may have been a little harsh on Porsche Australia – READ ‘Why Do We Pay More –  we no longer give a sideways what the new 918 costs, we just want one!

Stuttgart – Porsche AG announced the 918 Spyder Plug In Hybrid is officially on sale, well pre-order. This auto stole the show at it’s preview in Geneva last year. The concept project known as XG10 – 918 is going into production in September 2013, the expected cost of this stunner $US845,000 – we have no clue what the 918 will cost in Australia.   Porsche Australia, didn’t respond to Questions on pricing at time of publication.

Porsche AG specs the car as “consuming a mere three litres of fuel per 100 kilometres – 94 mpg. Its V8 engine delivers more than 368 kW (500 hp), assisted by two electric motors with a total of at least 160 kW (218 hp). The 918 Spyder is available for immediate order priced from 645,000 Euro. To ensure a 918 Spyder’s exclusivity, the two-seater is limited to no more than 918 units

As always Porsche has thought of everything, including the ubercool video above. The 918 is a true hybrid, being based on Carrera GT, 917 and RS Spyder. According to Porsche the 918 will be very close to the vehicle presented at the 2010 Geneva Motorshow.

We love everything about this vehicle – including the irony – In 1900 Ferdinand Porsche presented his first motor vehicle to the Paris Motorshow, an electric, 2 wheel hub motored, 50 kmh revolution – that never took off. We are holding our breath, will the Australian Landed 918 top $AU1.2million?
