Porsche 918 Weissach (via CNC Motors)
Sure, the $845,000 (USD) Porsche 918 Spyder is pretty rare; as just 918 of the plug-ins are currently (and slowly) being built out.
And sure, having 887 horsepower/940 lb-ft of torque on tap and a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) slip of 2.6 seconds (as low as 2.2 seconds clocked by Car & Driver) via a petrol and two electric motors is all well and good.
But what if that isn't enough to gain the advantage over your buddy with the plug-in McLaren P1?
Why not opt for the Weissach-Package (+$84,000 - see video below for details) that shaves 41 kg (90) lbs off the car to shave off that extra tenth of a second and slightly improve handling?
Now you can even do one better still! We noticed this Porsche 918 Spyder w/Weissach-Package for sale on the DuPont Registry (via InAutoNews) with even something a little more exclusive. No factory paint! Another 14lbs saved. HuZZah!
The Porsche 918 Spyder w/Weissach Package And No Paint Saves ~104 lbs/47 kg Of Weight Over The "Regular" 918 Spyder (1,700 kg/3,700 lbs)
Says the DuPont Registry:
"It's pretty wild to think that of all of the possibilities of how to build a 918 this is thus far the only to surface that is a twin to the most famous 918 in history that did the 6:57 at the Nuhrburgring driven by Marc Lieb"
As for the "plug-in" aspect of the 918 Spyder, the Porsche has a 7 kWh battery good for up to 12 miles/19 km of EPA rated range.
