Convertible Week: 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach Edition

When most people think about hybrid vehicles, images of haphazardly placed Greenpeace bumper stickers on oddly shaped compact sedans come to mind. Today its a different story, with hybrid emblems gracing small Toyotas right on up to the flagship of the Porsche range, this 918 Spyder. The 918 Spyder took over as the cost-no-object sports car in the lineup, but it was so much more than the Carrera GT. Unlike the Carrera GT, however, the 918 Spyder was a leap forward in terms of technology. With a 4.6 liter V8 and twin electric motors front and rear, this car puts down a total of 887 horsepower to the pavement. For those well heeled enthusiasts who missed out on procuring one new, this 2015 918 Spyder Weissach Edition for sale in New York City offers up a second chance at this state of the art supercar.

By the end of 2014, Spyder production was sold out. Like other limited run exotics, this means that you won’t be getting a deal on one anytime soon. The 918 with the Weissach Package that we see here had an original base price of $929,000. At over $1.5 million, this is a drastic amount of appreciation in not much time. One amusing fact about the 918 Spyder is that it was eligible for a tax credit due to the size of the lithium ion battery employed in the energy storage system. I’ll always be a bit old school when it comes to cars. Air-cooled Porsche 911s are some of my favorite classic sports cars. But when a car comes along like the 918 Spyder that can do 0 to 60 mph in 2.2 seconds, you have to respect the technology behind it. We’re looking at the future, here.
