The Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package is a limited production, mid-engined plug-in hybrid hypercar by Porsche. It acts as a performance package for the regular Porsche 918 Spyder.

Overview Edit

The Porsche 918 Spyder was designed by Michael Mauer. The 918 Spyder is powered with a 4.6L (4,593 cc) naturally aspirated V8 engine built on the same architecture as the one used in the Porsche RS Spyder LMP racing car without any engine belts.

According to Porsche, the V8 weights 298 lb (135 kg) and delivers 608 hp (453 kW) at 8,500 rpm and 389 ft·lb (527 N·m) of maximum torque and is supplemented by two electric motors delivering an additional 279 hp (208 kW), with one 154 hp (115 kW) electric motor driving the rear wheels in parallel with the engine and also serving as the main generator. This motor and engine deliver power to the rear axle through a seven-speed gearbox using Porsche's own PDK dual-clutch system. The front 125 hp (93 kW) electric motor directly drives the front axle and is decoupled by an electric clutch when not in use. The total power output comes out as 887 hp (661 kW) and 940 ft·lb (1274 N·m) of torque. Weighing at most 3757 lb (1704 kg), the 918 has a minimum power-to-weight ratio of 4.24 lb/1.92 kg per hp or 521 hp per tonne.

A 312-cell, liquid-cooled 6.8 kWh lithium-ion battery is situated behind the passenger cell. In addition to a plug-in charge port at the passenger-side B-pillar, the batteries are also charged by regenerative braking and excess output from the engine when the car is coasting. The V8 petrol engine can recharge an empty battery on about two liters of fuel (0.53 US gallons). The supplied Porsche Universal Charger requires seven hours to charge the battery on a typical 110V household AC socket or two hours on a dedicated Charging Dock installed with a 240V industrial supply. An optional DC Speed Charging Station can restore the battery to 100% in 25 minutes.

The 918 Spyder can operate under five different driving modes: E-Drive, which allows the car to run solely under battery power using the electric motors, giving an official all-electric range of 12 mi (19 km) according to the US EPA. Under the E-Drive mode, the car can reach only 93 mph (150 km/h). Two hybrid modes (Hybrid and Race) use both the engine and electric motors to provide desired levels of economy, efficiency, and performance. In Race mode, a push-to-pass button initiates the Hot Lap setting, which delivers additional electrical power for use on the track. The 918 Spyder's chassis is a carbon fiber-reinforced monocoque, while the car uses electromechanical brakes.

Porsche provided the 918 Spyder's performance figures as 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) in 2.4 seconds, 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) in 7.2 seconds, 0-186 mph (0-300 km/h) in 19.95 seconds, and a tested top speed of 218 mph (351 km/h). During an independent test by Car and Driver, C/D tested 0-60 mph in 2.2 seconds (with rollout), 0-100 mph in 4.9 seconds, and the quarter mile (400 m) in 9.8 seconds[1][2].

The Weissach Package is an optional lightweight performance package for the 918 Spyder. It includes a visible carbon exterior, with a carbon roof, rear wing, mirrors, and front window frame, as well as a different rear diffuser. The interior now uses both carbon and Alcantara in place of leather, with Alcantara steering wheel rim, center console, and door pad. Carbon is used for the interior trim parts, and the steering wheel uses CFRP paddles. Seat upholstery uses a nonflammable cloth in black or piping silver/acid. Seats are equipped with a six-point seatbelt and the door opening straps are in black. Wheels are made out of magnesium, while the car's body color is done in foil instead of paint. The car can come with an optional Martini Design livery or Salzburg Design livery. Weight is reduced by 88 lb (40 kg) in total.

Summary Edit

The Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package debuted during the Porsche Update as one of five Porsches in the Porsche Motor Series. Within the sequence of five special events, the Porsche 918 Spyder was unlockable via an Enduro Double Down which appeared as the last event in the series.

The Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package is a high-end Class S car, with a starting rank of 1482, a MAX rank of 1677 (+195), and a MAX + PRO rank of 1798 (PRO rank: +121). It is an Elite Car and receives +42 from Tuning Kits. When tuned in favor of raw top speed and nitro, the car's final rank without a Tuning Kit is reduced to 1796 (-2).

Performance Edit

The Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package is the highest-performing Porsche car in the game. Currently, it is the only Elite Porsche and it's also the only Class S Porsche. The 918 Spyder excels in top speed, being one of the top 10 fastest cars in the entire game (9th). The 918 Spyder otherwise has fairly balanced stats, but it is still slightly inferior to the Aston Martin Vulcan in all aspects of performance.

The 918 Spyder's biggest trait is its very large nitro, which is the largest in Class S. The 918 Spyder's large nitro gives it boosted acceleration and drifting, at the cost of handling. The 918 Spyder has a larger upgrade rank weighting on nitro compared to top speed, though, so it's better to tune it for top speed if the player wants to use the 918 Spyder in Multiplayer at a low configuration.

The 918 Spyder's large nitro gives it a low raw top speed, which can sometimes be an issue. The 918 Spyder's has an above average nitro efficiency of 7/11/15.5.

Usage Edit

Currently, Porsche-only events don't exist, but the Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package would qualify as the best car for said events if they do get introduced in the future.

Regarding TLEs, the 918 Spyder is inferior to the McLaren MP4-31 in Dubai, the Devel Sixteen Prototype in Tokyo, and the Aston Martin Vulcan on all tracks. The 918 Spyder is roughly equally matched against the Arrinera Hussarya GT and Lamborghini Aventador SV, rivaling both on all tracks.

In mid-rank Multiplayer, a good upgrade configuration for Multiplayer races with the Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package is 0500 5050 0800, which gives a total top speed of 286.8 mph/461.8 km/h @ S1595. While this is inferior to an Aston Martin Vulcan upgraded at 1502 5052 (301 mph/485 km/h @ S1597) and a McLaren Mercedes MP4-25 upgraded at 10/2/10/0 (291 mph/468 km/h @ A1600), this still makes the Porsche 918 Spyder faster than most cars at this rank, including the Sbarro Alcador. When tuned to 0504 5052 [-4,+4,-3,0], the Porsche 918 Spyder can reach a speed of 300 mph/483 km/h with Tuning Kit at a rank of 1659. This gives it a better chance of winning against McLaren Mercedes MP4-25s, although it will still most often lose to BMW 3.0 CSL Hommages and Aston Martin Vulcans due to its inferior speed, acceleration, handling, and drifting.

The Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package is most optimal in Multiplayer at a MAX + PRO upgrade configuration.

Being an Elite Car, the Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package isn't overly useful for farming. It is featured in the Porsche collection.

Price Edit
