Porsche has revised the performance figures of the 918 Spyder, prior to delivering the first car.

Up until now Porsche told us the production variant of the 918 Spyder needed 2.7 seconds to perform the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) run but it seems the car can do it in only 2.5s. When equipped with the Weissach package, the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) task is accomplished in 7.2 seconds, making it 0.5s quicker than originally stated. In addition, Porsche shaved off 2.1 seconds from the 0-186 mph (0-300 km/h) sprint so now it's done in a mere 19.9 seconds.

The car is also quicker when running only on electric power as the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) trip is now done in 6.2 seconds, representing a 0.7s decrease compared to the original performance figures provided by Porsche. Moreover, the time is reduced to 6.1 second when the 918 Spyder is fitted with the optional Weissach kit.

To top it all, let's not forget the Porsche 918 Spyder is the fastest car (with global road homologation) around the Nürburgring after lapping the Nordschleife in 6 minutes and 57 seconds.
