A lot has changed since Porsche first premiered the 918 Spyder concept car at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Porsche has recently announced that the 918 Spyder’s 4.6-liter V-8 engine and two electric motors will produce combined output of 887 hp, up from a previous estimate of 770 hp. The car has a top speed of at least 211 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds and up to 18 miles of gas-free driving.

In this video, Automotive Journalist Chris Harris gets to drive the 918 Spyder prototype along with Dr. Frank Walliser, overall project leader for the 918 Spyder.

You can see firsthand how the 918’s hybrid drive system works as Harris runs through the course of driving on both gasoline and electric power. This is a superb video and great entertainment for your Saturday morning. Enjoy!
