Several new pictures of the Porsche 918 Spyder have leaked to the web.
Reportedly taken from a brochure, the images reveal the model will closely resemble the concept that debuted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. The documents also indicate the 918 Spyder will be offered in 12 exterior colors as well as Martini or Salzburg livery.
The futuristic interior is dominated by a floating center stack which incorporates a touchscreen display and various control knobs. There's also a three-pod instrument cluster, a secondary infotainment display and plenty of carbon fiber and aluminum trim.
As we have previously reported, the $845,000 (€645,000) supercar will go into production in September of 2013. Official specifications haven't been announced, but the prototypes feature a 4.6-liter V8 engine and two electric motors. This gives them a combined output in excess of 770 PS (566 kW / 759 hp) which enables them to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 3 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 325 km/h (202 mph).
In terms of efficiency, the prototypes average approximately 3.0 L/100 km (78.4 mpg US / 94.1 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of roughly 70 g/km. More importantly, thanks to a 6.8 kWh lithium-ion battery, the car can travel more than 25 km (15.5 miles) on electricity alone.
