This is how Porsche assembles the 918 Spyder [video]

Porsche 918 Spyder is a very impressive supercar combining a naturally-aspirated 4.6-litre V8 with two electric motors.

The conventional petrol engine produces 608bhp while the electric motors deliver another 286bhp for a combined output of 887bhp and a maximum torque between 676 lb-ft and 944 lb-ft.

0-62mph comes in just 2.8 seconds, 0-124mph in 7.7 seconds, 0-186mph in 22 seconds, while the top speed is 214mph.

The 918 Spyder is also the fastest car with global road homologation around the Nürburgring with a 6:57 lap time.

Production will be limited to 918 units and as we have just recently learned all units are sold out. Yes you are too late to place your order with the local Porsche dealership.

The video below gives a good look at how the supercar comes to life, showing one of the cars with a No. 904 badge, meaning the last 918 Spyder is expected to roll off the assembly line in the near future.
