This time, the Porsche 918 Spyder prototype that costs $845,000 was seen sporting a new black and white shell, rather than the prototype camouflage used to ward off those pesky spies and auto/tech sites. The 918 Spyder (in case you were wondering) contains 770 horse power, and obliterates 100 kilometers of road for every three liters of petrol (78 miles/gallon). It is able to achieve such astounding numbers by combining a combustion engine with electric motors, a carbon-fiber reinforced-plastic monocoque (self-supporting) shell, rear-axle steering, and a fantastic upward-venting exhausted system (it looks awesome, right?). The 918 Spyder is booked for its initial production run beginning in September of 2013; the first units are making their way to American customers late next year.
