Supercar Sunday: Porsche 918 Spyder Configurator Live, Can Surpass $1,000,000

By | October 06, 2013
The Porsche 918 Spyder is a unique hybrid supercar, and you can now build one online with the Porsche configurator. We love playing with configurators, testing the possibilities, and essentially living in a fantasy land of building a $1,000,000 supercar. Paragraphimage While the 2015 918 Spyder starts at $845,950 after delivery, ticking off the pricey options can quickly get the numbers closer to the seven-digit mark. But the 918 Spyder itself won't top a million bucks, unless you opt for the $84,000 Weissach Package. Designed to make the Porsche 918 Spyder as much of a hybrid-performance-beast as possible, the Weissach Package focuses on eliminating weight—paring 77 pounds to be exact—through a series of weight-reducing measures. And options don’t come cheap: Liquid Metallic Silver or Liquid Metallic Chrome paint will cost you $63,000. Yes, you can get a new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette for that much. Vette's not your thing? How about a fully loaded 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG? Or… but we're guessing that if you're considering a $63,000 paint application, an earthly five-digit "sports car" won't catch your fancy. The Porsche 918 Spyder is capable of 887 hp combined, with a 608-hp 4.6-liter V-8 engine paired to two electric motors. Want to see how much a 918 Spyder built to your tastes would cost?
