Porsche 918 Spyder Assembly Line

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Rides

We didn’t think it was possible for us to want a Porsche 918 Spyder anymore than we did about 11 minutes ago – but that all changed after watching this video.

Created by the YouTube channel Cars, this video takes you behind the scenes of the hybrid supercar’s manufacturing plant. No voices, no music, nothing but good old Stuttgart awesomeness. The b-roll footage follows men and women in the spotless factory as they assemble one of our favorite vehicles to date. The Porsche 918 is extremely rare, and packs a 4.6-liter V8 engine along with two electric motors, a setup that’s good for 887 horsepower. This helps propel the car to 60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds from a standstill, and a 10-second flat quarter mile with a trap speed of 143.7 mph. There will only be 918 total units built, and it will cost roughly $845,000 to claim one as your own.
