/ by:

Porsche revised the performance figures of the hypercar 918 Spyder. As many of you may already know, the 918 Spyder needed only 2.7 seconds to sprint from zero to 60 mph. Starting today, the German hypercar will do the same sprint in 2.5 seconds, 0.2 second faster than the previous version.

Thanks to the Weissach package, the run from 0 to 124 mph is done in 7.2 seconds, 0.5 seconds quicker than the current version. According to Porsche, the sprint from 0 to 186 mph is done in 19.9 seconds, with 2.1 seconds better than the first production version.

Furthermore, the car is also quicker in the electric mode. According to Porsche, the 2014 918 Spyder can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 6.2 seconds, 0.7 seconds faster than the original performance figures. With the Weissach package fitted, this electric sprinting time is reduced to 6.1 seconds.

The 918 Spyder complete with Weissach package currently holds the lap record for road vehicles on the Nurburgring Nordschleife, boasting a time of 6:57 minutes. Final U.S. EPA fuel economy estimates will be available closer to launch.
