2015 Porsche 918 Spyder

The 918 Spyder was all about using the most cutting-edge, advanced technology and electrification ideas to build the first true “hypercar”. First shown in 2010 as a concept and launched for the 2013 model year, the 918 Spyder was a landmark hypercar for the industry; the 918 is considered the first hybrid hypercar, and is credited with partially inspiring the current wave of high-performance hybridization sweeping through the industry.
