Submission + - Hybrid sports car with a V-8 engine and 730 horsep (

thecarchik writes: Porsche confirmed the 918 Spyder for production almost six months ago, but that was the last news we received about the halo hybrid supercar. But now a few new details have emerged on what we can expect when the production version arrives in a few years time.

Probably the biggest changes have been made to its internal combustion motivation which is still a V-8 but has increased in size from 3.4-liters to 4.6. The new motor will produce 550 horsepower, which is 50 up on what was quoted for the concept. The 918 will lose one of the concept's three electric motors, the two remaining will be good for a combined 230 horsepower, which adds up to a combined output of 730 horsepower.
