DRIVE Attempts To Go 13.4 Miles In Porsche 918 Spyder In Electric-Only Mode – Video
Can you go from one end of Manhattan to the other in a Porsche 918 Spyder using only its all-electric range? We wonder…
The Porsche 918 is a plug-in hybrid supercar that reaches 60 MPH in under 3 seconds. It uses 2 electric motors to fill in the torque off the line, which is where the V8 ICE is somewhat lacking.
Juice it up to full and you get an estimated 12 miles of range in all-electric mode as an added bonus.
As DRIVE’s Mike Spinelli, driver of the 918 in the video above adds, it’s as easy to drive as a Toyota Prius…believe it or not.
Check out the video to see if DRIVE made it end-to-end in Manhattan in all-electric mode.
