(2012) Porsche 911 Turbo S “Edition 918 Spyder” (997.2) – Ultimate Guide
Inspired by the 918 Spyder, Porsche introduced the 911 Turbo S Edition 918 Spyder that was mechanically identical to the standard 997 Turbo S – but accented with bright green trim, decals, and even brake calipers to match the similar trim on the 918. Contemporary accounts suggested that Porsche would limit production to 918 models – but the records we’ve found are much lower, with only 146 produced between coupe and cabrio versions.
Alongside its limited production run, the rare 911 came fitted with “Edition 918 Spyder” Acid Green badging, matching Acid Green brake calipers and mirror accents, and carbon fiber trim both inside and out. The interior has also been furnished with upgraded leather, stitching, and even new instrument cluster needles. As mentioned, it still delivers 530 hp (395 kW) courtesy of a 3.8-liter flat-six paired to a seven-speed PDK.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S Edition 918 Spyder is essentially a 997 Turbo S with Acid Green badging, brake calipers and door mirrors. Inside, the same green is used on the stitching, instrument dials, PCM screen, illuminated sill plates, and there’s a dashboard plaque bearing the same number as the customer’s 918 Spyder. The Turbo S Edition 918 Spyder is available in coupe and Cabriolet forms, with prices starting at €173,241. Production is limited to, unsurprisingly, 918 cars. However, we wonder if that many 918 Spyder buyers will also want to indulge in a Turbo.
