Supercar buyers interested in the Porsche 918 Spyder may have to act quickly, as the limited-edition model is nearly sold out.
The high-performance hybrid began its production run last fall, with assembly continuing into July 2015. The company has already sold all vehicles that are scheduled to roll off the assembly line through late March or early April, however."It's probably in the last and the final straight," Porsche Cars North America marketing exec Andre Oosthuizen told Automotive News.The halo supercar pairs a 4.6-liter V8 engine with an electric motor on both the front and rear axles, adding up to 887 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. Drivers can expect to hit 62 mph from a standstill in just 2.8 seconds, with a top speed of over 211 mph.Keeping to the name scheme, the company only plans to build 918 examples of the $850,000 supercar. Less than 40 have reportedly been delivered so far, and at least one has already been destroyed by fire when the owner was attempting to refill the gas tank.
