Porsche 918Company Porsche next year can begin manufacture of the new compact roadster which will receive a name Porsche 918. This model can become the most popular Porsche in the world which on the sales is capable to overtake even Porsche Cayenne!

For the first time model under the name 918 Spyder concept was presented in March on a motor show in Geneva. «We did not expect such reaction, clients were delighted», - representatives of company Porsche have declared. However, in Geneva the car has been shown with a hybrid power-plant – petrol V8 in volume 3,4 l capacity of 500 h.p. which works together with two electromotors gives out 218 more h.p. (one cursor rotates wheels of the front axle, the second – wheels rear, the petrol engine is in the centre). But there are big doubts that the car will go to a series with such power-plant. For certain, Porsche 918 will receive more traditional motor (it is not excluded, maybe four-cylinder).

In Porsche says that they have received already about 1000 letters from potential buyers who are ready to buy this car and even to bring an advance payment.
