Following in the footsteps of the iconic 959, which helped define the layout and technological capabilities of modern supercars and hypercars in 1989, the Porsche 918 debuted in 2013 as a hypercar that combined extremely high performance with driveability and technological ingenuity. Its design centers on an innovative hybrid drive system that combines a mid-mounted V-8 engine derived from the company’s Le Mans Prototype RS Spyder race car with two electric motors. These enhancements proved to be so potent that, in 2013, a 918 Spyder became the first production car ever to run a lap at the Nürburgring in under seven minutes.
