Porsche 918 Spyder In London

"How can one of the fastest cars on the planet, drive silently through the streets of London emitting no noise or carbon dioxide?"

Asks Porsche, in reference to the plug-in hybrid Porsche 918 Spyder.

Porsche chief driving instructor Gordon Robertson takes the 918 Spyder through London to show us exactly how the plug-in Porsche achieves this zero emissions feat.

Of note is that the 918 Spyder is exempt from London's congestion charge, which is likely why Porsche is showing us how the 918 Spyder travels through London with no CO2 emissions.

Porsche claims the following fuel consumption specs for its two production plug-in vehicles:

  • 918 Spyder: 3.1-3.0 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: 72-70 g/km. Electricity consumption 12.7 kWh/100 km
  • Panamera S E-Hybrid: 3.1 l/100km; CO2 emission: 71 g/km. Electricity consumption: 16.2 kWh/100 km
The 918 Spyder is the world's quickest plug-in vehicle in production today.  If you've got $1 million, you can order one right now.
