Auto Trader News - The Number One place for the Ultimate Petrolhead Fix



Auto Trader brought you the story of how we infiltrated Porsche’s top secret base in the desert of Dubai (near Outlet Mall) a few issues ago. There we found the prototype of the 918 Spyder and possibly the future of Porsche overall. That car has now broken cover for test drives on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.

Spies at the track report a 795+ hp Porsche hybrid super sports car turned in a remarkable best time of just 07:14 minutes for the 20.6 km long circuit. One year before its production launch, the lap time of the Porsche 918 Spyder prototype is one of the best ever clocked for street-legal vehicles with standard production tyres.

What is more remarkable is that the course was only available to the development team from Weissach for one lap.
