Baby Spyder Might Return To Porsche Lineup
Will the Porsche baby spyder return as a hybrid or a a full electric vehicle like the Taycan?
European websites are chattering about a possible return of a baby Porsche Spyder. So, will Porsche come back with a rear mid- engined sports car after the 918 Spyder?
The question is still not completely answered with any possible evidence on the internet and it follows some rumors from several months.
No, if Porsche has intention for a baby spyder then it will probably be a 2-door Taycan electric vehicle that will carry enough power to taken on the current market leaders.
Customers can expect a supercar capable of competing with the best that Ferrari or McLaren can provide.
Porsche 918 Spyder Details In Case You Missed It
The 918 Spyder was systematically developed to be a performance hybrid with plug-in technology. The hybrid super sports concept car made its debut at the 2010 Geneva International Motor Show where it met with overwhelming approval. In the summer of 2010, the Supervisory Board of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG gave the green light for its production development.
When the car was launched on the market in late 2013, the 918 Spyder represented a continuation of a series of super sports cars in Porsche history. As technology pioneers they were, without exception, among the ultimate sports cars of their respective decades: the 904 Carrera GTS, the 959, the 911 GT1 and the Carrera GT.
The 918 Spyder embodies classic Porsche virtues and sets cornerstones for the future. On the one hand, the car embodies performance. In September 2013, the super sports car – with 887 hp of system power – set the lap record for street-legal vehicles with production tyres on the North Loop of the Nürburgring with a time of 6 minutes 57 seconds – a record that has never been equalled by any other car since. On the other hand, the car embodies efficiency.
With a fuel consumption figure of around three litres of petrol per 100 km, the 918 Spyder consumes less fuel than most small cars in the standardised NEDC cycle. It convincingly illustrates the potential of plug-in hybrid technology – not only for economical driving, but more importantly for the typical sports car driving pleasure it can offer.
