There triggers an immediate response of “fast” whenever we hear the term sports car and so Porsche is up with another exciting and powerful version named as Porsche 918. It might surprise many of you that what else a perfect sports car would be like than the Porsche 911?
Don’t you want to discover what Porsche 918 Spyder is all about?
Take a look
A Parallel Hybrid Model of Excellence
Being the fastest stallion of its kind, Porsche 918 Spyder is equipped with 875bhp, thus beating the Porsche 911 553bhp. Stuttgart and his team considered all the demands of the real world and stood up with a car for next decade with hybrid drive. Minimum fuel consumption with maximum performance makes this sports car out-stand among all others and of-course it has many years of experience to work with such powerful and lightweight production.
The basic idea was to have parallel improvement and to design a vehicle that could be used even without a body. As a result it persuaded the team to come up with this unique model. Befitting a mixture of combustion engine and electric motor, this lady allows the non-trained Motorsport drivers to relish the strength of its transverse dynamics. Furthermore, the whole load-bearing structure is made of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) that gives an ideal light weight (around 3,715 lbs.) to this hybrid model and maintains the temperature conditions.
Framework with Rear-Axle Steering and Porsche Active Aerodynamic (PAA) for 5 Superb Driving Modes
Talking about the ravishing chassis of Porsche 918 Spyder, there resides several multi-functional systems like rear-axle steering and PASM shock absorber system. Each rear wheel functions to adjust the steering angles and speed in various directions. You might ponder that whether it is similar to all other sports cars? Believe me, it’s way too different in every way.The axle basically works for both low speed and high speed. It deals with the rear wheels to move in opposite or same direction of the front wheels respectively. Thus improves the stability of the rear end and leading to a secure and cheesy drive. What perfection I must say!
Another useful system that serves this car is PAA. It is a system that tremendously handles variable aerodynamics. It is tuned to the operating modes of hybrid model. Using its specifications regarding the Race and Sport mode it manages the speed and air flow along with the rear wing and spoiler. An intelligent management system is surely cooperating with all these function. In order to not restrict the car to a general mode Porsche has dealt with 5 modes including E-Power, Hybrid, Sport Hybrid, Hot Lap and Race Hybrid. I don’t think any other sports car would be so concerned and multi- functional.
Porsche 918 Spyder’s Eight Cylinder Engine – The Main Momentum
The main factor of propulsion is the 4.6-liter, eight cylinder engine that produces 608 hp at 8600/min (V8 engine) of power. The engine is derived directly from the power unit of the RS Spyder, which explains why it can deliver engine speeds of up to 9,150 rpm. The engine is not playing the role alone; the sound effect the car produces is also enchanting. What a sports car would be without the exhilarating sound? The top pipes used serve for heat removal and works with a thermodynamic air channeling concept. Moreover, the cool engine compartment provides benefit to the lithium-ion traction battery. The Porsche Speed Charging Station (DC) is also present that can completely charge the high-voltage battery of the 918 Spyder in just 25 minutes.
The Weissach Package for Additional Performance
Are you one of the performance-oriented customers? No problem, Porche offers the “Weissach” package. The roof, rear wings, rear-view mirrors and frames of the windscreen all have designs based on the demands with carbon. Sound insulation reduction and optional film-coating instead of body paint are all possible with this package. More than any of its predecessors; the Porsche 918 Spyder is providing thrust for technologies for upcoming decades. It surely is my dream sports car. What about you?
