“The Turbo remains the spearhead of technology,” said August Achleitner, vice president – Porsche 911 line. Indeed, in over the four decades the model has been around in the segment, it has continued to be impressionistic and emotive than technical. There might be other cars in the entire automotive market, but there’s no other model that does more justice to the name “turbo” than the model itself.

As one would expect from a brand like Porsche, the 911 offers ample leg-and headroom in its snug front seats. You have the option of ordering you own customizations if needed including varying degrees of lateral bolstering, and adjustability. But even with the base model, you’ll still get an enthusiastic long-distance driving.

Given the Porsche 911 is a sports car, the rear seats it comes with offers little utility and are often used as cargo shelves or for small children. This gives the 911 a better practicality in comparison to its 2-seat-only rivals.  Interior materials are upscale and comfortable. Additionally, the interior layout is thoughtfully executed while modern amenities like smartphone functions, navigation, and control buttons are easily accessible.

For starters, this is the only sports car that provides this enormous amount of different powerplants. With this engines, you get a variety of output ranging from just 350 hp to 560 horsepower. With such kind of power, you will need to ask yourself whether you are buying the Porsche 911 for everyday driving or for the track.

For some reasons, automakers seem to make some mistakes which are either unavoidable or calculative. For the Porsche 911 expect no manual transmission option for both the Turbo and GT3 models. Also, the vehicle comes with a pricey tag. As such, it would be imperative to check out other alternatives the segment has to offer.

2017 Porsche 918 Spyder Release Date, Info – The newest supercar that is the 2017 Porsche 918 Spyder promises to deliver never-before-seen specs and will include some unheralded performance abilities. The amount of efficiency the new Spyder comes with is something that we have yet to witness in a supercar and we are in for it now. The car has been announced for the upcoming year and will perhaps be released a bit earlier so we also get an early Christmas present with the new Porsche car.

The new car is going to have a stunning new design which is not only to look fast but it is going to deliver on its performance. The hypercar is going to be designed sporting an all new hybrid powertrain as this vehicle was the first one which introduced the world to the new kind of technology and brought this performance enhancing vehicle to us.

The car is certainly a stunner and the performance rates which were studied and tested at the Nürburgring Nordschleife where the vehicle was able to finish the test in just 6 minutes and 57 seconds time. These figures are more than impressive and truly show what the car is going to be all about. We have gathered enough information about the Spyder as it was possible and have presented it in this review. Despite the fact that the car is going to be released by the end of the year, there is already a lot to go on.

The exterior look of the 2017 Porsche 918 Spyder is going to be a spectacular one. The vehicle is going to follow some Porsche roots and we are also going to get a bit of legacy here as the vehicle is based on the heritage of the Carrera GT supercar. But the design is not a complete reminiscence of the said model as they have managed to keep a closer eye both on the past but especially on the future of these models. The vehicle is going to have a low-slung stance which is going to be further build upon with some flowing curves and lines which are supposed to give the 918 Spyder a more of an organic look. There are some very muscular fenders which combine with some massive and masculine air intakes which give it more of an attitude and make it seem more menacing that it already is.

With the exterior look being one of its better sides the aerodynamic build is going to be an important factor here as they have made it as light as possible and added the curves that are going to make it go even faster. Power is not enough to get the car rolling past the goal so some engineering masterpiece is additionally needed. It will have plenty of those while it gets rolling. The vehicle is actually 800 pounds heavier than the lightest vehicle in the lineup, the Cayman, which brings it closer to a sort of a performance that the vehicle is supposed to be in.

Interior

2017 Porsche 918 Spyder steering wheel, lcd screen and dashboard

The inside of the 2017 Porsche 918 Spyder is as crisp as it gets. It is actually not anything especially higher than the most attainable Porsche you have on the market. That being said it is still a Porsche, so the interior luxury and style is more than expectable. But this is a racing vehicle so the comfort levels are on the second seat while the driving comfort is what is more important. The car is going to add a driver-focused interior which will see the inside as being the perfect setting for the driver to be in. The interface has some clear industrial lines which are brought to the inside. The clean look makes it easier for the person to operate and driver’s attention will not get caught by anything else at a quintessential moment. The centers stack, on the other hand, is what separates this design form other ones in the Porsche lineup as it is produced to perfection.

Engine

The powertrain of the 2017 Porsche 918 Spyder is quite unique in sort of a way. Instead of using a massive and a very powerful engine, the vehicle uses a combination of 4.6-liter V-8 engine, that has a total power output of 608 horsepower , and combines with a hybrid powertrain and an electric engine which comes to a total of 887 horsepower and 940 pound-feet of torque.  In fact the Spyder uses two electric motors which help it attain this sort of production levels, one is used for the front axles while the second one is fitted to the back side. The vehicle is able to change between five driving modes, E-Power, Hybrid, Sport Hybrid, Race Hybrid, and Hot Lap.  The acceleration rate is so great that the 918 Spyder is able to accelerate to 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds. The vehicle also utilizes a seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung as a transmission choice and transfers the power to the front wheels while the forward electric engines is used to drive the front wheels at a fixed ratio. The EPA ratings state the vehicle is ranked at 67 mpg when being driven in hybrid mode, but drops down to 22 mpg when changed to a gasoline only engine.
