It's time for an incredible Porsche vs. Porsche drag race!
So let's see how the 2 compare. Starting with the 918 Spyder, it's powered by a 4.6-litre naturally-aspirated V8 combined with 2 electrical motors. Integrated, they can produce 887hp and 1,280 Nm of torque. Power is sent to all 4 wheels through a 7-speed automatic transmission, and the automobile suggestions the scales at 1,674 kg.
Along with it we have the 911 Turbo S. It's still equipped with the exact same 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six as the standard car, however, it's had the ES Motor 750 plan fitted to it. As an outcome, power output has actually increased from the stock 650hp and 800Nm to 888hp (1hp more than the 918!) and 1,000 Nm! It sends this power to all 4 wheels via a PDK dual-clutch automated gearbox, and it can be found in somewhat lighter than the 918, at 1,640 kg.
The concern is, while the 911 Turbo comes in at an overall cost of around ₤ 210,000, the 918 Spyder is valued at around ₤ 1.4 m! Will it prove its worth? There's just one method to find out … LET'S RACE!
