After re-signing the landscape of what a hybrid car performance can be in Geneva Motor Show this year, the Porsche 918 Spyder Concept was already eligible for the production by the Beijing Auto Show. Today is officially the NOD, the Board of Directors of Porsche. It will be built.

Porsche had a 1,000-buyer on the threshold of the decision to build the 918 Spyder. In late April, the number signed up to buy one, will be built was more than 900. It now looks like the 1000-mark has been erased, as President and Chairman Michael Power Porsche said in a release today, “The production of the 918 Spyder in a limited series of shows that we are the right approach with Porsche Performance intelligent combination with taking superior performance and efficient powertrain concepts. We will develop the 918 Spyder in Weissach and mount it in Zuffenhausen.

No time line was given for when the car will be ready for the road, but we would expect at least a two-year run-up to the first models. Just in case you’ve forgotten how great the 918 Spyder Concept: it is a 500-horsepower, 78-mpg, 9200-rpm 3.4-liter V-8 hybrid all-wheel-drive sports car capable of 3, 2 seconds 0-60 mph, 198 mph top speed, 16-mile all-electric range, and looks at traffic stop cold.
