Porsche-918-Spyder-in-prototype-guise The celebrated Porsche 918 Spyder is scheduled for debut at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show from 10 September.

The Porsche 918 Spyder is the continuation of the traditional Porsche DNA in a ground-breaking sportscar concept. Designed from the start to be a high-performance hybrid, the 918 Spyder boasts an unprecedented combination of performance (offering the 887-bhp output of a super sportscar) and the virtually silent locomotion of an electric vehicle. The vehicle is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and offers an average standard fuel consumption of between 3.0 and 3.3 liters/100 km. The 918 Spyder concept also allows a combustion engine to be combined with an electric motor-based drive to further optimize the dynamic performance of the vehicle. It’s also meant to be a day-to-day sports car.

Apart from the 918 Spyder, Porsche exhibits the updated Panameras, including the S E-Hybrid version, the 50-year 911 limited edition, and the new 911 Turbo line-up.


Porsche 911 50th Anniversary edition

This year, the iconic 911 variant sees its 50th anniversary; to honor its most popular variant, Porsche brings out the “50 years 911” limited edition variant, which is based on the 911 Carrera S platform.


In addition, the new generation of the Porsche Panamera takes center stage at the IAA. As the first plug-in hybrid in the luxury class, the pioneering Panamera S E-Hybrid is proving that Porsche is leading the field with its expertise in the development of fuel-efficient drive concepts for sportscars. Also on show is the more fuel-efficient Gran Turismo for long distance driving, the Panamera Diesel, which now offers an output of 300 bhp.


Porsche 911 Turbo line-up observes 40th anniversary

Last, but certainly not least, the 40th edition of the 911 Turbo and Turbo S are going to leave the spectators speechless at the IAA. The two newest versions feature; new all-wheel drive, active rear-axle steering, adaptive aerodynamics, full-LED headlights and the 560-bhp, flat-six engine with double turbocharging. And for the first time as a standard equipment in the Turbo S, the Active Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) rolling-motion compensation system is combined with dynamic engine mountings and PCCB ceramic brakes. The package is available as an option for the regular 911 Turbo. Quite recently, the 911 Turbo S achieved a 7:27 lap time at the North loop of the Nuerburgring; a rare feat for a sports car fitted with standard production tyres. Meantime,  the sports car’s New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) fuel consumption is rated 9.7 liters/100 km, which is 15% lower than before.
