In parallel-hybrid rear-wheel-drive mode, the superclever Porsche can run on gasoline, on electricity, or on a combination thereof. The front wheels, though, are driven on demand by the so-called electric portal axle. The four-wheel torque-vectoring system is tuned for optimum traction, stability, and handling. If required, the mighty V-8 can even act as a supersize range extender by driving the rear electric motor, which in turn supplies the lithium-ion batteries.
In E-mode and with the batteries fully charged, a feather-footed driver can achieve a zero-emissions range of up to sixteen miles. The plug-in charge time varies from two to seven hours, depending on the available voltage. The green-colored brake calipers advertise the energy-regeneration system, which feeds the battery pack behind the seats. The energy cells are also charged when the vehicle is coasting.
With its redline at 9200 rpm, the normally aspirated 3.4-liter V8 develops at least 495 hp, more than in the RS Spyder but less than the V-10 fitted to the Carrera GT. Although the 918 Spyder weighs 3285 pounds and thus 240 pounds more than its predecessor, the quoted 0-to-62-mph acceleration time of 3.2 seconds beats the previous supercar by 0.7 second.
Porsche’s computer simulations have the XG10 lapping the Nurburgring in 7 minutes, 30 seconds — again beating that 605-hp legend, if only by two seconds.
