This is the latest pre-production image of the Porsche 918 Spyder

We have seen the Porsche 918 Spyder in spy shots and official prototype images.

Porsche has posted the above picture from Monterey Motor Week on Twitter calling it the latest pre-production version.

We don’t see any visual updates, except the exterior, which has a silver paint. There are likely some updates to the suspension, brakes and powertrain, but no official word on it.

The 918 Spyder uses a 887 hp plug-in hybrid powertrain, combining a mid-mounted 4.6-litre V8 delivering 608 hp and a hybrid module on rear axle producing 115 kW and electric motor on front axle another 95 kW.

0-62 mph comes in 2.8 seconds, 0-186 mph in 23.0 seconds and the top speed is 211 mph (93 mph in purely EV mode with a range up to 18 miles).

Porsche also confirmed the production version will be unveiled next month at Frankfurt Motor Show.
