Porsche 918 Spyder stars at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show

Porsche 918 Spyder stars at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show It's been more than three years since we first heard about the ultimate Porsche road car. But this year's Frankfurt Motor Show saw the wraps to the production version of the 918 Spyder finally and fully taken off. At times, it felt like we were been strung along by the long, slow release of information, specifications, photos, and drive reviews at various stages of development. But the Frankfurt show marks an end to the mystery, and the start of having your questions answered. All the details, from power and construction, to emissions, price, and the all-important Nurburgring lap time (6:57) are now out in the open.The 918 Spyder was without question the star of the Frankfurt show -- and not just for Porsche. Behind its stunning exterior is the heart of a 21st century supercar, a 4.6-litre race-spec V8 engine that's mated to a pair of electric motors. This allows it to be both ultra-fast and ultra-frugal.
