Porsche 918 Spyder Being Showcased for Buyers

The McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari have dominated the hypercar headlines of late, but the folks at Stuttgart have been hard at work on the Porsche 918 Spyder. The spiritual successor to the Porsche 917 is nearly ready, and according to a report from Autocar, Porsche has already been displaying the car to prospective buyers...in the Middle East, of course. Spotted in Bahrain, there were two test mules and two near-production cars were made available to prospective rich guys to take around the Bahrain F1 track in the 795-horsepower supercar. The potential buyers must be pretty well-heeled, as the 918 Spyder fetches a base price of £682,000 ($1,061,000). PHOTOS: See more of the Porsche 918 Spyder
