Up until now, we have only seen the upcoming 918 Spyder in pre-production trim, with the final model to be released at a major international auto show in the course of this year. However, Porsche has already added its new flagship supercar to its U.S. pricing catalogue for 2013.
In it, we see the 918 Spyder registered as a 2014 model with a starting MSRP of $845,000 (around €634,500 or £407,500 at the current exchange rates) excluding state taxes and an as-of-yet undisclosed destination, which is the same as the price announced by Porsche officials last year.
The VW Group-owned company also confirms the price for the 918 Spyder with the Weissach Package, which from what we've heard, removes a series of amenities and comfort features such as the air conditioning and audio systems, armrest and door storage to reduce the car's weight by 34 kg (77 pounds). This model carries an MSRP of $929,000, again not including taxes and destination.
Porsche's entry in the exotic supercar segment sports a plug-in hybrid driveline with a mid-mounted 4.6-liter V8 producing more than 570PS (+562hp) connected to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission driving the rear wheels and a pair of electric motors, for a combined system output of 795hp.
