Chris Harris Exclusive 918 Preview of the Porsche 918

Porsche 918 Spider

Envy is one word for the exclusive access Chris gets to the motor industry, but Pistonspy tips his hat on some very sensible and technical details he manages to extort from the engineers at Porsche.

He gets the information that the calibration unit for the drive train comes from the 991 variant of the Porsche GT3, and also manages to take the prototype version, albeit riding shotgun on to the streets around the Nordschleife in Germany.

Also discussed is the range of the electric mode which is hinted with a range of 150km in between charges, then the chassis calibration engineer turns the car in to race mode and basically turns Chris interest in to the combustion engine.

Anyway enjoy the video and celebrate with Porsche the incredible laptime of 7:14 of the infamous circuit in the 918, which I remind you is still not the final calibrated production variant of the new Porsche’s supercar.
